The biggest request I’ve gotten from you guys has been for more DIY gift ideas! Last week, we made these votives and today I have another fun (crowd-pleaser!) DIY gift idea up my sleeve for you… this gorgeous monogrammed tote!
We use Old Navy’s classic tote bag as our foundation for the project. This bag is great on its own and the roomy silhouette makes it perfect for the office, running errands, everything! I thought I’d jazz it up a little bit though (a la one of my favorite French designers, of course!) adding racing stripes and a monogram to the front. All you need is some acrylic paint (make sure to get white too, for use as a primer!), painter’s tape, brushes and alphabet stencils! All of the steps are in the video, and while this project takes a bit of time (only because the coats of paint need to dry) the results make it worthwhile. I recommend making a few at once for all of your girlfriends! (This also makes a great gift for bridesmaids, I might add!)
