Spotted & Dotted: 9 Polka Dot DIYs to Try this Weekend


I like to think of dots as a classic – a pattern that never goes out of style – kind of like stripes. And more recently they (dots) have been popping up in a big way, especially in the DIY community. So I found a handful of my absolute favorites polka dot projects to share and inspire before the weekend is here. Enjoy!

1. polka dot pillowcase diy from Claire of Fellow, Fellow for Say Yes to Hoboken

2. make a finger print dot blouse from Runway DIY

3. gold dot embellished heels from In Honor of Design

4. gold leaf spotted paper mache bowls from Kelli Murray

5. polka dot painted tights from Laura Parke for Design for Mankind

6. polka dot etched drinking glasses diy from A Beautiful Mess

7. diy polka dot jewelry dish from Shop Sweet Things

8. do-it-yourself polka dot painted jeans from Andrea Fairservice for Breanna Rose

9. a perfectly dotted vase project from Ruffled

And for even more weekend project ideas (not necessarily polka dot related), visit my I love DIY board on Pinterest.

P.S. I also write for Curbly. Here are my posts from the week…

Have a great weekend!

These are so cute. I totally agree that polka dots are a classic. I love that these DIYs can be made mostly out of stuff that I already have AND they won’t go out of style any time soon. Love love love!
