embellished tank top tutorial

IMG_4066

I've got another last minute idea for everyone out there needing a little last minute holiday sparkle- transforming a simple tank into a pretty embellished top.

The only supply that you need is metallic Scribbles 3-D paint which is dimensional paint for fabric- otherwise know as puff paint. (friends I am telling you, I love 3-D paint! It is perfect to use for some many different projects)

and a tank top- I purchased a nice dark grey tank from Old Navy for $8.99.

I started at the collar of the tank and slowly made my way around the edge with tiny little dots.

I added more designs and dots.

I even used a toothpick to add smaller details.

I covered the entire top portion of the tank trying to create the look of a necklace.

Perfect to wear alone or layer with a cardigan. Holidy party here I come!

Looks great! If I attempted, it would look like a hot mess, I pretty much have a love hate relationship with fabric paint.

This is divine! And there are just so many patterns you could make with it! It's shot to the top of my to do list. Thanks for the inspiration!

The 80s taught me to be terrified of puffy paint.

Perhaps I have to re-think this policy. This tank is lovely!

Baiba Vigule said...

Wow, perfect work!
I love the things you do, they are so perfect.
Best wishes :)

puff paint brings back so many great memories of junior high. making your own tshirts was the 'coolest' slumber party activity. thanks for reviving this in a much more age-appropriate way. ;)
