Last week, we teamed up with Target to show you how to add studs to a basic envelope clutch. Today, we’re all about going dotty for polka dots!

We took a plain old canvas tote, created a bubble-inspired pattern using stencils (found at Target) and painted with Tulip fabric paint. It’s easy as pie, and is a great way to personalize your go-to beach tote this summer. Check out the video above to see how it’s done, and be sure to follow Target’s #SummerUp Pinterest board for more ways to pep up your summer.

You can use stencils and fabric paint or dye to breathe new life into all sorts of basics in the style department.

Some of the other accessories featured in the video above include: Dyed Denim Shirts; Stencil Leggings; and DIY Dyed Scarves.
