Baby Bib / Onsie Decorating
When I hosted a baby shower I needed decorations and an activity. This worked great for both!!
I had decorated a pack of onsies myself and hung them up before guests came. Then left supplies out on the table for them to use to decorate bibs. They all had lots of fun and there were some very cute and origional ideas on the bibs once all was decorated!
What you need:
Plastic table cloth at the party to keep the paint mess down.
Soft fabric paint
Onsies or bibs
Clothes pins and string to hang them up to dry and to use for decorations for the baby shower.
Foam stamps or ink stamps
Butter dish lid for holding paint
paper grocery sacks
I considered using ribbon to decorate the edge of the clothes pins to add some extra color but ran out of time.
How I did it:
Put paper grocery sacks inside the onsies to keep the paint from going through to the other side. For bibs you don't need the sacks.
Use the paint brush to apply paint to stamps to keep them from getting too globbed up. If they get too much paint on them the design does not show right and the projects take too long to dry.
Go for it an have fun!
To hang ours we hung a string across from window to window using suction cup snap hooks. Worked great and people loved the decorations!
