Update on Stencils: 

 

I made an experiment today with the stencils to see if it would even work. I'm going to sum it up in one word: fail hahah. I had a tiny stencil and tried it out on an old shopping bag. Now, I love doing crafts but I've never been a fan of painting so I don't really do it. This is what I started out with: 

 

Fail%20project%20materials_zpsoaxuwugj.j

 

You can barely see the stencil because it's almost the same color of the bag. I used some double sided tape to keep it in place. 

 

Well, first attempt was really a total fail. I put the spray paint too close and basically soaked the fabric to the point it bled to the other side. Don't do that guys haha. That's the right side on the picture below. Then I decided to try again. I put the can further away and went over it a few times. It turned out a little better, but since the stencil wasn't big enough and it has really tiny parts which I couldn't put tape on, the design didn't come out very well.

I'm not ready to reject the null hypothesis yet haha. I have experiment #2 to do. I'll try it with a bigger stencil and really stick the whole thing on to the fabric. Let's hope that turns out ok. 

 

On a more positive note...

 

I felt like my dress for the legal ceremony needed a little something. I found a nice belt at Michael's. I didn't want to spend a lot, but with the coupon this ended up being $20. It looks really good with the dress, I just have to cut it.

Darn!!!!   Have you considered just regular paint and not spray paint? Unsure if it would work differently.

I always get these great ideas thinking it sounds easy and then it isn't LOL!!

 

Belt is awesome!   5 months :)

I know! time is just flying now! The music is really keeping me awake at night. I need to get on that. 

 

The stencil I used is actually for cookies, so that might have to do more with the the fact that they didn't quite turn out. 

 

I wish all crafts were as easy as they sound! Sadly they're all about trial and error at first.

I agree!  Anything with measurements and/or cutting I suck at.   Shawn did a lot of for me.

thanks! I found it right with the rest of the wedding stuff. Right by the garters. They have other ones too with flowers and things but the flowers were pretty big and I'm on the small side. 

 

I would have taken a picture of the belt with the dress but my legs need some waxing hahah.

Yes! my cutting is just horrible. Let's just say I have all these ideas in my head but when it comes down to executing them it takes me a while to get them perfect :P

@TinkerSofi I have to commend you for at least trying :) I don't have a creative bone in me so I give up before trying lol

Love the belt, and it's a steal at that price!

I try :). I enjoy doing these things even if sometimes they don't work. I guess I'm always doing silly experiments. Hopefully I have time today to do round 2 to see if it works! 

 

I thought the price was very reasonable! I wanted kind of a bridal belt but didn't want to spend $80-100 on it since it's only for the legal ceremony and the dress only cost me $30 hahah. I was surprised to find it at Michael's :). I'm totally like a hawk when I go in there and find the most obscure things haha.

I've had a few similar experiences with some DIY as well. I've made about 3 different types of mason jar vases and I think i'm finally happy with the end result for the mint coloured mason jar vase. The worst was when I was toying with the idea of glitter in the vases.. it was a mess and it didn't turn out well at all lol. Pinterest makes things look wayyy too easy sometimes.

 

I'm confident you will end up making something great..all of your completed DIY projects have turned out fantastic so far :)

 

Great find on the belt! I saw some at Michaels as well, but my mom bought me my belt already.
