Custom Crafts: 4 Ways To Turn That Tote Bag Into Something Unique
Crafting is a wonderful way to spend your spare time. Whether you are making party favors with your girlfriends, bonding with your child, or simply exploring your creative side, a truly unique (and colorful!) craft is always delightful. Heavy duty canvas bags provide a great, well, canvas for you to express yourself on, and they offer a variety of uses; let's take a look at four projects that will turn that plain tote bag into a fun and functional work of art.
- Ice Cream Beach Bag: Potato stamps offer an affordable way to express your creativity. When it comes to making an ice cream cone bag to hold your beach towel, simply cut a potato in half and dip the flat side in some paint. Use a larger potato to replicate the triangular cone, and you've got a summer treat in no time!
- Modern Moods: This is one of the easiest projects on our list. Turn back to your potato stamps and cut out whatever shape you prefer -- triangle, circle, square, or anything else you'd like. Then, simply dip them in paint (the color is entirely up to you) and create neat and orderly rows. The final product will be a chic and practical bag that can be used for any occasion.
- Pom-Pom Play: You don't need to dye your heavy duty tote bags in order to achieve a look that stands out. By attaching pom-poms to your bag, you open the door to possibilities: create a happy bunny rabbit with a big pink pom for a nose, use red pom-poms as the fruit of cherries, or upgrade your ice cream bag with pom-poms instead of potato stamps.
- Gifts and Groceries: Rather than focusing on design, think about use. Is your child's birthday party coming up? Decorate totes in their honor as goodie bags for their friends. Are you trying to reduce your use of plastic? By using a tote bag to do your grocery shopping, you can remove more than 22,000 plastic bags from the environment.
From gift tote bags to wedding tote bags, you can create an inspired look that fits a special occasion or make something just a little more memorable to carry your groceries in. Get out your paints, stock up on white heavy duty tote bags, and see where your imagination takes you!
