Birthday Party Aprons

Moussia's birthday is not until next month, but I had some small white kid's aprons from a previous project and wanted to try decorating them for her party. Since it's going to be an art party, each girl will wear an apron to protect her clothing from paint splatters. They turned out so cute!
 Here's how:
I bought aprons these last year at Michael's. I'll need a few more packs so I hope they still sell them!

The letters were purchased from Staples...
They are designed for indoor and outdoor use so they stick really well. 

Position the letters where you want them...
a piece of tape helps to keep the lines straight.

Using a stencil brush, dry brush some paint around each letter. I used Martha Stewart's craft paint.
Be sure to pounce the brush and not brush it and keep the paint dry. You don't want too much paint to seep under the letters.

Now for the fun part...
after the paint dries carefully peel off each letter. Your letters will remain white.

These colors are child-like but this idea would also work with more sophisticated colors on a plain throw pillow, table runner, or monogrammed napkins.
 Can't wait till she sees them!

  1. Adorable.
    Two questions, 1. What does it mean to pounce the brush. 2. Can the same letters be used on more than one apron? Or each apron needs fresh letters?
    Thanks

    1. Hi Bassie
      Pouncing the brush means hitting it gently instead of brushing it.
      Yes, I made three aprons so far and used the same letters...they are still sticky!
