|Striped Picnic Blanket|
Thing You'll Need:
Fabric Drop Cloth from Home Depot (I used the one recommended in Twig & Thistle and it works great)
Fabric Paint, this is the type and color I used, I used 2 of the large bottles since the stripes I made were really big, so how much you need really depends on your design.
Step-By-Step How To:
|Mark the design you want to make with a pencil and a ruler!|
|Outline the design in painters tape.|
|Get your paint ready on your roller tray, oh and don't forget to lay down a piece of plastic so you don't get fabric paint all over the place!|
|Get some paint on that roller!|
|Start painting your blanket, don't forget to stay within the tape. The canvas has a plastic lining underneath so it soaks up a lot of paint so I recommend not placing too much pressure on your roller.|
|Let your blanket dry overnight, once it's dry remove the painters tape!|
|Ready to use!!|
Also my massage therapist suggested that you could even make a picnic blanket with your initials, isn't that the cutest idea? You could even make a blanket with a giant anchor on it to use at the beach! So many possibilities!
Picnics are so much fun!! I will have to write a picnic how-to post soon. EC and I had the best time picnicking!! :)
