Heavy duty glue, aquatic fish tank tube thing and metallic spray paint. I wonder what the cashier thought of me.
So yesterday, I spent the afternoon working on my first Walmart DIY. I wanted to create a cool, airbrushed, tye-dyed, kinda weird jean using the metallic gold spray paint. Best $3.45 spent. There's so much I could do with that spray paint, oh the jeans were just the beginning!
Top- French Connection, Belt- a really really big dog collar, necklace- DIY, Jeans-DIY, Booties- Marshalls
To create the jeans, I just laid them out on the grass in the blistering hot sun and applied 3-4 layers of spray paint. I tried to get some paint splatter on their too by shaking the can horizontally as I went along. I also tried to do less on the knees, to give a worn look.
Dress- H&amp;amp;M, Belt- DIY, Necklace- Forever21, Boots-Vintaged (90's? 80's?), Headband- Banana Republic
Oh and totally off topic, but this is a dress that I brought recently from H&M. When I brought it home and tried it on for the first time (I rarely use dressing rooms), I hated it. Discouraged I clipped the receipt to it and stuck it in my closet (BTW that's a great tip. If you're not sure about a new purchase, paperclip the receipt to the price tag so it won't get lost.)
But after seeing a few other bloggers rock it in different colors, I figured it wasn't too bad. So I quickly whipped up a belt and tried it on again today with a few other accessories. Now I love it and I can't wait to take the price tag off and wear it.
P.S. I made the belt out of an old broken handbag strap in case you're wondering.
