Laundry Hamper Design Tutorial

hampers 055
In the Dollar Spot at Target they had large fabric laundry hampers for $2.50 and I have to pick a couple of them up. My girls need new ones and I saw all the possibilities to decorate them up. I have two of them and plan on making them each unique. Today I am going to show you how I decorated the first one.
Fabric Laundry Hamper Painted Design Tutorial Supplies:

First you start by deciding on the placement of the name, and draw it on with the white pencil.

Using the white pencil draw on a few design elements.  don’t worry if they are not perfect at this point because you can wipe the marks off with a wet cloth after the paint is dry

I painted the name with the Scribble Fabric Paints  first as this was the largest design element.

I used the shiny white for the swirl elements.

The floral style elements were made with the Glittering Crystal, and the little dots with the Glittering Silver.
