The Simplest DIY Ever.

What I'm wearing: shoes, bag, glasses: thrifted, shorts: thrifted & DIY, Hat: forever 21, top: no idea, but I cropped it myself

I was quite bored yesterday so I decided to do a DIY - I've been wanting to paint a pair of shorts for awhile now, I just couldn't decide what I wanted on them. I think they turned out just fine, though! I'm sad that I waited so long!

Anyways, what you need: 
A pair of shorts
Fabric paint
Paint brushes
Newspaper (probably)
Inspiration for a pattern

This is incredibly self-explanatory, but that's okay I guess - it is my first DIY, after all!

First, make sure you put newspaper in your shorts, as the paint might leak through. 

Figure out what kind of pattern you want - I did a really simple tribal inspired one that I basically copied from something I saw online. You can copy mine if you want, I don't care.

You may need to use a ruler or something to get the lines straight - I didn't use one, because it was a complete experiment. I just went for it, using the lines of the shorts.

Paint away!

Well there you go! I hope to do another pair soon, since I've now had a little bit of practice - I think I'll paint flowers on the next ones :)

Have a wonderful Sunday!
