Adding a fun pattern to your shorts is easy and only takes minutes with ColorShot and this Patterned Shorts DIY.

ColorShot Shorts DIY by Trinkets in Bloom

If you saw my post on Friday I showed a teaser for today’s DIY and unfortunately I had a SNAFU and I wasn’t able to post it today. It is still happening and I hope to post it next Monday as I will need the weekend to get the final photos taken. So… in place of that awesome DIY today I’m sharing another fun summer DIY using ColorShot the new Fabric Spray Paint by Tulip.
