Christmas Tote Bag

You know I love a good tote bag. I could make a new one for each season! Which is pretty much what intend to do :) I decided to change up my usual design, but still keep it easy and fun. (Because that is how DIY should be!) And yes, I know that we haven't even hit Thanksgiving, but the early bird catches the worm. Make this cute Christmas tote bag now and you can carry it all December. It's perfect for "toting" gifts and goodies to parties. And if you start now, you can make an extra one to give as a present.


 To make your own "Christmas Tote Bag" you will need:
-Tote Bag (Canvas Corp has my favorites!)
-Paint (like this)
-Masking Tape
-Paint Brush
-Iron On Letters (like this)

First, tape off the area you want to paint. Since this is a Christmas bag, I wanted to have candy cane stripes. I tore off strips of masking tape and put them on the bag.


Be sure to rub down each piece of tape, that way the paint does not bleed under the tape when you paint.

Next- let's paint! I used a foam brush. Be sure to cover the bag completely so none of the canvas shows through. Then let the paint dry completely before removing the tape. 


After waiting 24 hours, I ironed-on the letters. And ta-da! You have a Christmas tote bag.
