So, I filled you in on the overall design basics. Now, it’s time for the details!!
- Bottle of Acrylic Craft Paint in bright yellow ~ $4 @ Michaels
- 1.5″ Foam Brush ~ $0.59 @ Michaels
I used a foam brush instead of a typical paint brush, because I figured the bristles would get paint all over the front of the invites. The foam brush still did this a little, but it was much less noticeable, and only happened on the outer invite. I painted them in small groups, rather than individually, which would have taken forever!! I did two sides at a time, waited for them to dry, and then did the other two. I definitely recommend having professionally cut paper if you are going to paint your edges, as any size discrepancies would have caused the paint to be transferred to the sides of the invitation when they were being painted in a group. And that’s it!! It honestly didn’t even really take that long. A little effort for a big impact is my kind of DIY! 🙂
