The Easiest Way to Paint Chevron

As I was making gifts for my Littles a few weeks ago, I came across this tutorial for painting chevron. A lot of tutorials for chevron painting will have you draw out a grid  or flip over backwards before you can start the chevron-ing process. Ain't nobody got time for that! After I saw this quick trick, I knew it was genius and had to share it with you darlings!

Simply cut a corner off of a piece of paper and tape around the edges! With this trick, you can space out the stripes as much or as little as you want! After you finish painting in your stripes, let the paint dry. Then, peel off the tape and BOOM! You have perfect chevron stripes! So easy, right?!

Happy Chevron-ing!

With Love,
