Create a Faux Cross Stitch–with Paint!

Michele from The Scrap Shoppe had a black dress hanging in her closet that was pretty boring and barely ever worn. She was inspired by Anthropologie to give the dress a makeover – cross stitch style! However, the kicker is that this project actually requires NO sewing. Instead, Michele achieved the look of cross stitching  with paint. I am all about painting on fabric, so this project is right up my alley! Now, I know a dress isn’t décor, but you could definitely use this same technique to create your own wall art or even jazz up a plain tea towel. All you need is paint, which makes this a very budget-friendly DIY!
