What I Wore Wednesday {WIWW: splash of color}

Happy Wednesday Friends!

Besides the pool, one of my favorite things about Summer is COLOR!  I LOVE COLOR…in my home and in my wardrobe.  You may notice that I typically infuse some sort of color into my outfits…maybe a bright shoe, jewelry, handbag, scarf or sweater.

This outfit is NO exception…

In fact, this may be the brightest piece in my wardrobe…

AND I LOVE IT!

DIY Hanging Kite {from a Poppy Seed Projects frame}

Hello Friends and Happy Monday!  A couple weeks ago I guest posted on Poppy Seed Projects…Just in case you missed it, I am sharing it today!

Not sure about the rest of you, but I am ready for Summertime!  Summertime around our house means Fun, Relaxed days…What better way to set that tone than with a bright, yet welcoming…Kite!

DIY Kite using Poppy Seed Frame {Onekriegerchick.com}

Ready to see how you can make your own Hanging Kite?

First let’s gather our supplies:

Kite supplies {Onekriegerchick.com}

*Poppy Seed frame of choice {I used Eleanor square}

*Paint supplies

*Embellishments {vinyl, fabric, ribbon}

Now, Here’s how I did it…First I painted the edges of the frame so the creamy color would show through when I sand it.

First painted layer {Onekriegerchick.com}

Then, I painted a section of the frame where the quote would be.  No need to paint the entire frame.

Then, using my Cricut, I cut out a vinyl quote “let’s go fly a kite and send it soaring” from Mary Poppins.  I carefully adhered the vinyl, making sure to firmly press all the edges down. (That way the next coat of paint will not bleed under the vinyl.)

Originally, I had planned to use all acrylic paint.  Until…I remembered I had a perfect Aqua spray paint!

Ready for Final coat of paint {Onekriegerchick.com}

So much quicker than acrylic and it dried uniformly and without lines.  Make sure to allow each coat to dry before applying another.

Now, for the finishing touches..I very carefully removed each vinyl decal, exposing the navy paint underneath.  Then, to give it a little more character, I lightly sanded the edges.  For a kite tail, I cut strips of navy ticking fabric and tied three knots.  I then hot glued the fabric to the back of the frame.  Using the same fabric, I tied an imperfect bow at the top corner.  This can all be customized based on the look you’re going for.  Bright colored ribbons would add a fun pop of color too!
