[DIY] Heart Print Cutoffs

If you go back to my Festival Season post, you'll notice a pair of heart printed shorts in the first collage. I LOVED them, but thought HEY! I can totally do that! So guess what?! I totally did. It's a very simple DIY, and you can use any shape you'd like. I simply:
1- went to the good old thrift store
2- got me some men's Levi's
3- cut them to my desired length
4- got some fabric paint and paint brushes from Wallacks
5- cut out a heart from construction paper
6- stenciled onto the shorts
It's really easy! With a very fun result.
