Mustard Accessories

11:12 PM

I have fabric to make a dress for this summer.  But I got ahead of myself and made the accessories first, using  yellow spray paint.

BEFORE:  I got these purple pumps at Khols on clearance a few years ago for a few dollars.  I've only worn them once, and I thought I'd make them yellow.

So I taped off the heel, and jammed a plastic grocery sack in the shoe, used gray spray paint primer, then a few thin coats of yellow spray paint.


I wonder how long they'll last.  I assume the spray paint won't stay nice forever, and will eventually crack.

The next accessory to get the yellow spray paint make over were some plastic red beads I've had for a long time.  I strung them on twine and also primed and spray painted them.

They took a couple extra coats to turn and rotate them to get all the sides.

But now they're a simple necklace.  I think I may switch out the ribbon for something else, maybe put beads or knots between them to space them out a bit.
