DIY Garden Apron

INSIDE : Learn how to make a simple DIY Iron-On Garden Apron!

DIY Garden Apron final,
I decided to join in a Monthly Challenge hosted by  Somewhat Simple.  The first week’s challenge was to create an apron.  With the weather still plenty hot here in New Mexico, I thought I would take today’s DIY outside.  I am sharing an easy DIY Garden Apron.
Whenever I garden, I end up with dirt, pollen, and all kinds of other gooey things on my hands.  Somehow, it always ends up on my shirt… so this seemed like a perfect project for me!

I went to Hobby Lobby and picked up a pre-made apron, an adorable yellow and white striped flower and iron transfer herb prints.  I already had the white striped ribbon at home.

Next, I ironed on the patterns.  This iron transfer process took about 8 seconds and was so simple.
After getting the herbs on my apron, I attached the ribbon and flower.

 I then added just a little bit of a watercolor wash to a few of the letters and flowers.  It adds just a bit of color to the apron, which I love.
