I put polka dots on one of Z’s shirts yesterday.  The idea came to me after I realized the shirt had a big, ugly stain on it, and it wasn’t coming out (no matter how many of those pinterest laundry tricks I tried).  So I decided to cover it up with some paint.

Supplies needed:
a shirt
silver acrylic paint
30mm foam stencil brush

Place the cardboard inside the shirt, so the paint won’t seep through to the back.  Make sure the shirt is lying flat.  Use the stencil brush to make your dots.  The key here is to make sure you have enough paint on your brush to make a complete circle.  And when you place the dot on the shirt, push the brush down and tilt the handle around slightly to make sure you get a complete circle on the shirt.  You may want to practice a few times.  There is really no rhyme or reason to where I placed the dots. It was all random.  If you don’t like random, you could always break out the ruler.

Now I just need to make one for myself.

I’m always on the hunt for a good hair bow/clip for my little girl.  I like something simple, small, and unique.  And, in my opinion, that can be hard to find!  (That’s why I started making some on my own.  See my tutorial here).  But sometimes, i don’t feel like making my own.  It might surprise you, but this place is by far, my favorite when shopping for hair bows and clips for my little one.

So cute and a great price, right?  There are many more options on the Forever 21 site.  These are some of my current favorites.  Click the pics above to link to the items on the Forever 21 site.

Do you have a favorite place to buy little girl hair accessories?

I also love this handmade shop, and this one.
