Have you ever noticed that most sewing tools are boring? Industrial plastic that comes in only in one or two colours. With this DIY I'm going to show you how to take it from boring to GLAM! If we are going to be using this tools every day, might as well make them to our taste. I hope you enjoy this fun little DIY and thank so much for reading!!
Happy DIY'ing :)
- Seam Ripper
- Painters Tape
- Krylon Metallic Spray Paint
- Fine Sandpaper
Lightly sand the plastic with a fine sandpaper to make sure that the paint will stick.
Cover the metal portion with some painters tape to make sure it remains paint free.
**Follow the painting instructions on the spray bottle and make sure you paint in a well ventilated area or even better paint outside.**
I used a cardboard box lined with paper to make sure that my work area remained clean!
I used Krylon's Metallic Spray Paint. You can find this anywhere they sell paint, or any craft store. Shake the can well before painting and spray 10-15" away from the seam rippers.
I applied about 4-5 thin coats, waiting a few minutes in between coats. The paint dries completely in 15 minutes, which means that this is a super fast project from start to finish!
Once dry, remove the painters tape and enjoy your new personalized seam ripper!!
