DIY - WATERMELON SHORTS 

Because who doesn’t love watermelon, specially on shorts! I had an absolute blast putting this tutorial together. These shorts are perfect for any music festival, because as we all know, anything goes at these events. I found a dope pair of watermelon shorts on NastyGal.com, but I figured I would just make my own for a fraction of the price. $85 vs. $15 bucks, I’ll take the DIY version any day. 

MATERIALS: 

  • High waisted shorts 
  • Green Fabric Paint
  • Black Fabric Paint
  • White Fabric Paint
  • Fuchsia Rit Fabric Dye
  • Paint Brushes
  • Bucket 

HOW TO: 

1) Begin by prepping your bucket with hot water over a sink or outdoor surface. 

2) Follow the instructions on the Rit fabric dye package label and dye your shorts accordingly.

3) After your shorts have been dyed, washed, and dried, you can begin by painting the green bottom trim of your shorts. I would begin by finishing the front of your shorts, allow to dry, then move onto the back. 

4) Now move onto your black fabric paint and begin to paint round watermelon seeds throughout your shorts. Allow to dry. 

5) Once your green trim and black seeds are dry, finish off by painting the top of the trim with your white fabric paint. Allow to dry, and you’re set! 

XOXO - Drea 

PS. Please allow the shorts 72 hours to dry before putting them through the wash. 

PSS. You can apply this tutorial and make strawberry shorts instead too! Just substitute the fuchsia dye with red fabric dye.

As per every latest trend and cool new thing to have, I’m always tempted to find my own, more inexpensive way to own it/make it. So after I made some of those chain bracelet rings, I decided to make some chain headpieces! Which are ridiculously easy to make. It cost me 4 dollars for the chain (which I used all of to make these 2), 2 dollars for the jump rings (for a pack if 50 so I have plenty of left) and another 3 dollars for the little trinket things, the circular piece and the cool pointy piece (which I still have 11 more of). So basically these are hella cheap to make and super cute. So basically, screw you and your overpriced jewelry, Urban Outfitters.

I’m not a huge fan of the term of “slave bracelets” for these pieces of jewelry but HEY I made some of my own bracelet rings! All you need is chain, jump rings, a clasp, pliers and chain cutters and which ever choice of beads you like. I chose these blue stones and those seeing eye hands. SO ridiculously easy to make. Tutorial coming soon on my DIY blog!
