When Josh’s mom & I first talked about our shower for Jenna’s baby, we soon decided it would be fun to paint onesies instead of play games. Then we found out the baby was a boy and suddenly things got tricky.
How in the world are you supposed to decorate a onesie for a baby boy? No hearts? Dots? Flowers? Rainbows? Glitter? This stuff is for artsy fartsy people, not me. And how can I expect 20 other people to get on the bandwagon?
I quickly took to the internet. Pinterest, obviously. And while it was helpful, I was a little disappointed in the “Painting Boy Onesies for Dummies” category. Not a lot there. The one tip that I found and ran with was the idea of using painter’s tape to make stripes. Stripes. I can do stripes! So I did a quick trial-run.
The funny thing is, I worried for nothing. These people had it down.
There were some pretty crafty ladies in the bunch. I think my personal favorite is six-year-old Betta’s (the long-sleeved one in the photo above). She really worked hard on it.
Now Jenna has a stash of onesies in a variety of sizes, so as her little guy grows she can be reminded of different people who love her son. Pretty fun, right?
