- Apron with a front pocket
- Paint palette
- Black acrylic paint
- Paintbrush
- Hot-glue gun
1. Fill half a mason jar with brewed coffee.
2. Cut off a section of lace and place it inside the mason jar so that it is completely submerged in the coffee.
3. Remove the lace from the mason jar and place it on a tea towel to dry.
4. Pour black acrylic paint onto the paint palette. Paint a coffee cup and steam lines onto the front of the apron.
5. Place a strip of glue onto the upper edge of the apron pocket. Press the lace into the glue, folding the lace as you go to create a ruffle effect. Allow the glue to set before wearing the apron.
