DIY Polka Dot Bathrobe
Nothing feels quite as nice and refreshing as taking a warm shower after a long day.
It’s one of my favorite routines and almost always brings up my spirits. I believe that everyday should be special and filled with joy, so I decided to make my daily shower routine a little extra special and created a custom polka dot printed bathrobe. Nothing quite makes me smile like a cute polka dot pattern! And this bathrobe is extra comfy (and extra cute!) and the perfect thing to put on after I shower.
I also refreshed my in-shower routine with method‘s new foaming body wash. It’s a delicious scented body wash that instantly foams and lathers up oh-so nicely. My go-to scent is the ruby orange but I’m also loving the crisp cucumber melon and the wonderfully floral water flower. You can get your hands on the new foaming body wash next time you’re shopping at Target—it’s available there exclusively through October. I used the fresh scents as color inspiration for my bathrobe because they are just so bright and cheery. It’s funny how such little changes in your daily routine can totally transform your morning.
Time: 1 hour + drying time
Step 1: Wash and dry the bathrobe according to the directions on the label (make sure to not sure any fabric softener as this can affect the way the paint adheres to the fabric). Once dry, press the bathrobe with a warm iron to remove the wrinkles.
Step 2: Place scrap paper under the bathrobe so the paint doesn’t bleed on your table. Working with one paint color at a time, dip the sponge in the paint and press it onto the fabric. Once the sponge is on the fabric, rotate it ever so slightly to ensure it fully makes a mark. Repeat this all over the bathrobe, moving the paper as you go.
If you’re as impatient as I am, you can speed up the process by drying the paint with a hair dryer.
Step 3: Wash and dry the foam pouncer and repeat with the other colors.
I mixed equal parts bright avocado and indian turquoise to create the green cucumber mint color. I just love how minty fresh it looks!
