Geometric Wedges | DIY

Tuesday

I have a hunch that I've made it quite clear that I have an untreatable case of spring fever. To quench my unending lust, I've turned an old pair of thrifted wedges into a newly revamped, spring inspired wedge. Here are all the steps...

 Supplies: Wedges (try and thrift them!), card stock, paint.
Pantry Supplies: Paintbrushes, scissors, pencil.

First, cut out a triangle from your card stock. This will be the stencil for your pattern. Then, begin tracing the triangle with a pencil, covering the entire wedge in a pattern. Next, paint! This step is entirely up to the painter's taste on whether to paint every triangle or various triangles. I chose to paint various triangles throughout the pattern, leaving some of the original wedge showing.

Happy crafting. xo
