now before you get super impressed with me i have to tell you that i DID NOT make the actual canvas tote.

I bought the tote at a local craft store.

…but the stripes were all me.

i found this craft on a blog called “say yes to hoboken”

she always has fun simple crafts on there.

at any rate, this is a pretty easy one.

i just put duct tape on the parts i didn’t want painted and then i took  a stencil paint brush and went to town.

that is all there is to it.

however, i looked at my finished bag and decided it was missing something. something i love more then stripes. MASON JARS.

so i stamped a mason jar and called it a day.

…just in time to go to the beach.
