Seeing Spots? Polka Dot Projects Are the Cure!

Polka-Dot-Wine-GlassesI hate to break it to you, but it’s spot season again. I know you just got over that spell of spring fever, but it seems that the next seasonal illness is upon us. If you’ve been seeing spots, don’t fret – Dr. FaveCrafts is on call! She suggests two remedies: get plenty of exercise and excitement by planning a polka dot party, or remain restful and unwind with a few polka dot stitching patterns.

These Polka Dot Wine Glasses that you see on the left might be just the thing to get you inspired this season and chase those summertime blues (a far worse ailment) away for good. If you’re ready to bring your spotted friends into the home, perhaps you would like to try some cute polka dot décor. DIY Dot Pots are an adorable place to put your growing flowers, and they look great indoors or outdoors! If you’re the artsy type (which I know you are), then maybe Polka Dot Wall Art is more your style. It adds a lot of brightness and cheer to a home that’s not quite summer-ready.
