DIY Sunday - Daisy Trim Tank
This has been a project that I have been wanting to do for the past few months now, and I finally got to do it! The fashion world has been slowly presenting us daisy trim clothing, from pocket trims on distressed shorts to necklines on tanks! I have been loving all the clothes, but was unwilling to purchase them for their price, so that is when I decided to make it myself at half the cost.
I purchased my daisy trim at Joann's fabric store. The daisy trim was a lot more than I expected (~$7.50/yard), but I had a 40% off coupon which knocked it down to almost half price. SCORE! I am pretty confident you can locate any other trim online or at your local fabric market for a great price, so do not feel like you have to purchase the exact one I did. I also did not have a tank that I was interested in upgrading, so I went to goodwill and picked up this practically new lace tank for $4, but again, you can use any tank you have in your closet. :)
It only takes approximately 5-10 minutes, unless you are a fast gluer, then it will be much faster than that! This tutorial is extremely easy and self explanatory, so feel free to skip all the jargon below and just get inspired!
What you need:
1. Tank 2. Trim 3. Scissors 4. Glue Gun
(This particular tank required exactly 2 yards of trim)
This step is totally not necessary, but if you are a messy gluer, use a paper/cardboard to separate the front from the back, so you do not end up gluing your tank together!
Start gluing! This particular trim was perfect. I just dot hot glue to the center of each daisy, and pressed onto the trim section of the tank for 2 seconds. To make it easier, I would suggest cutting sections of the trim, so you do not have to work from an entire roll, and potentially tangling it all up. Another suggestion is to glue 2-3 daisies before pressing it down to speed up the process.
Decide on whether you want to completely cover the neckline and arm area, or stop here - they are both equally cute! And BAM! ALL DONE!
Did I not mention that was ridiculously easy...? Please feel free to ask any questions, or even better, link me to your DIYs! I would love to see them. :)
