DIY Splatter Paint Gift Tags
I’；ve always loved painting. But lately， I’；ve noticed I’；m a super impatient painter. I like projects where I can create something effortlessly awesome within one hour. Hmm is that unreasonable？
Well that’；s exactly what this splatter paint project is…；
This project was inspired by Kate Spade Saturday’；s splatter paint print. It’；s so fun and SO easy to recreate. Plus， you really can’；t mess it up. It’；s gonna look great no matter what. Promise.

01 Mix the acrylic paint with a little bit of water， it has to be watery enough to drip. If you add too much water， no worries， just add more paint!
02 Place the watercolor paper on the floor， preferably on a tarp unless you have an awesome studio space dedicated to painting. You lucky.
03 Dip your paintbrush in the paint mixture and hold it over your watercolor paper. Drip as much or as little as you’；d like!
04 After the watercolor paper dries， cut out your gift tags shapes.
05 Hole punch the top center of the tag.

Oh these tags are definitely gonna score you some extra points. High five， yo!
