18 Fun and Funky Polka Dot Craft Projectscraftyamy
If there is one thing that regular readers of Mod Podge Rocks know, it’s that I like polka dots. I don’t wear them as often as stripes, but I do wear them as much possible. They are fun and make me happy – especially in crafting projects. A few well placed polka dots in your fashion or home decor can do wonders for your mood. I found several polka dot craft projects to share with you, ranging from subtle to bold. A really cute and quick polka project is this spotty pincushion above. You can sew it with leftover fabric scraps in a matter of minutes. What other DIY goodies did I find that use polka dots? Find out after the jump!
