So as you might have guessed from all my "Outfits of the Day" posts, I LOVE Anthropologie. However, a girl can't spend her entire paycheck on pretty, shiny things. I mean, I could, but that's not a very adult thing to do. So I like to do the occasional "Anthro Hack"-a DIY project that copies Anthropologies' adorable, but simple pieces for a fraction of the cost. For example, the Clare V. Dotty Pouch is extremely cute, but at $215 I think I'd rather make my own.
Enter... Ipsy bag makeover!
- Paint (Black & White)
- Paint Brush
- Circle Stencil (or use a lipstick cap like me, as a hack if you don't want to buy a stencil)
- Optional: Skinny Graphic Scarf
Note: I stenciled each row with both circles before moving on to the next. If I did it again I would have drawn the primary or "white" circles first in a polka dot pattern, then drawn the secondary or "black" circles to fill it in. It would have been easier to get it precise, in my opinion.
Paint your final layer of white. Clean up any errant paint or pen/pencil marks and let dry.
Total Cost: Free! (I just used what I already had on hand).
If you don't have the paint supplies and bag you could probably still do the total project for under ~$20.
Have you ever tried a "hack" before? Did it come out as you expected (or was it a hilarious disaster)?
