Materials List

  • Tote Bag
  • Fabric Paint
  • Stencil
  • Paint Brush
  • Pom Pom
  • Pom Pom Ribbon
  • Glue for Fabrics

DIY Project Instructions


  1. Place a cooking paper inside the tote bag, in order not to allow the color to painte both sides. Stabilize the stensil on your tote bag and apply color with your brust. Remove carefully the stensil and allow to dry.

  2.  (Note from the blogger: "One way to add them on the bag is actually by sewing. I have to admit that this time I wanted an easy craft and I was really bored to spend more time on this bag...yes I know! So the Glue for Fabrics solved my problem and the specific one is really strong!")

    Apply glue on your pom pom and decorate your bows!

  3. Last but not least, let's make it know... Boho Chic! So more pom pom on a ribbon. Again apply glue for fabrics and decorate your tote bag. Allow it to dry for a few hours and then iron is carefully in order for the color to be more stable. Just use again cooking paper to cover the bows while using the iron!

pom poms looks amazing on everything! This craft is fun and involving craft for everyone. You could use some ocean colours like coral or turqoise and embellish with glitter and some shells from the beach for an amazing beach tote.

This is such a fun bag! I like how colorful and cheerful it is. It'd be a perfect pop of color for any outfit. The pom poms are a nice touch!
