Finally I found a good use for my rolling pin! This little DIY is so simple and makes a very good impression as gift wrap.
The tiny air pockets of the bubble wrap becomes polka dots and by combining two colors from our Annie Sloan palette it adds a fun element.
We have used Napoleonic Blue and Antibes Green. You can win the entire palette and a specialist brush in our Annie Sloan competition so enter now!
This is a simple DIY that you can get the kids to help out with. It’s loads of fun!
You will need:
Rolling pin | Bubble wrap | Unprinted newspaper | Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Napoleonic Blue and Antibes Green
Wrap a strip of bubble wrap around your rolling pin and secure it with double sided tape.
Paint the bubble wrap (with the air pocket side up) in two color ways in bands all around.
Roll the rolling pin on your unprinted newspaper to form bands of dots.
I have used a paraffin lamp wick as a finishing touch in yellow. Simply dilute a bit of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in English Yellow with water. Submerge your ribbon and let it soak for a few minutes before hanging up to dry.
It’s as easy as that! Hope you have lots of fun with this one.
