I’m so excited because we’re leaving for Florida tomorrow for a weeks vacation! We’re staying in a condo on the beach, yay! I’ve been to florida once before but it was winter so I’m excited to laze around on the beach this time. I made some beach totes to carry beachy things around in. I’m giving a couple for gifts for family who will be there as well. Hope they like em!
I cut out a cross shape from a piece of foam, glued a wine cork to the back for a handle, then dipped it in fabric paint to make the cross motif bag. Easy! I later filled in any gaps with a brush. For the ombre heart bag I drew a heart shape on the bag then used wine corks as stamps (for another project to use wine cork stamps look here!) I started with black paint at the bottom on the heart then used 2 shades of gray and finally white at the top. I think it turned out pretty cute:)For my chevron patterned bag I used the wine cork stamps again starting with aqua, then turquoise, then sea foam green. Very beachy eh!
Jayla puppy has to stay at the dog kennel while we are gone but someday I’d love to take her to the beach with us! She loves the water! I’m filling up the totes with some goodies then all set!
You can follow me on Instagram at #Jesshm28 during the trip all next week; I’ll be sure to post lots of beach scenes! Have a lovely week ya’ll!
