Make It : Chic Summer Shorts

Posted by

It's already reached above 100 degrees here in New York this summer, which means gone are the days of sporting pants and leggings on the street. We've spotted a few cute DIY projects using simple pairs of shorts on the web, and thought a round-up was in order!

Taking a pair of plain shorts- we like these and these, and embellishing them with our paint and fabric medium, results in a chic summer look.

DIY Raven used our black paint and painter's tape to create her own design:

Liz of Say Yes to Hoboken made these too-cute polka dot shorts using fabric paint and the end of a pencil (what a great trick!):

I also loved this quick painting project from the clever folks over at Jcrew - a perfect use for our paint!

Have you used our paint to embellish accessories or clothing? If so, we'd love to hear about it!
