• DIY Polka Dot Potholder Set

    diy polka dot potholders

    Did you hear the good news about my sister in law Gabby of Design Mom? She and her family are moving back from France-right here to the bay area! We’re so excited. We spent some time yesterday reviewing with Henry the 6 cousins that will be moving here. It’s been so long, he doesn’t really remember them really at all! I know once he becomes reintroduced they’ll be instant buddies though.

    Anyway, so housewarming gifts are on my mind lately and when I spotted this green potholder set at the store for only $4, I knew I had to add a little handmade polka dot touch to them. Wrap them in a bow and maybe stick some painted ombre spoons inside the mitt for a handmade housewarming gift.

    Keep reading to see how to make those perfect little polka dots…

    To make the polka dots:

    1. Pour a bit of paint onto scrap paper and dip the eraser end of the pencil into the paint, then stamp onto the potholder. Re-dip for each polka dot.

    2. Wait for the first side to dry before polka-dotting (totally a word) the second side.
