Every time I bake my kids want to help and they always want to borrow an apron. The problem is that my aprons are way to big for them. I finally decided it was time to make them each a DIY Kids Apron that I personalized with their names.
This is a no sew project and the end product is so cute! I am tempted to make one for myself.
I chose to make these aprons Christmas themed, but you can customize them however you want. I mainly just wanted to show you that you don’t have to be intimidated by crafts like this because they are easier than they look.
Until I saw a youtuber customize a trick-or-treat bag for her kids, I had no idea it was so simple.
There were so many ways I thought to do these kids aprons. I considered using fabric paint and having them make a finger painted picture on the aprons, etc. Ultimately I decided on these iron-on decals because they look more professional.
When I say professional, I just mean they look like something I want to keep and use again next year instead of just tossing after Christmas is over. I decided to keep the finger painting to homemade Christmas cards.
How to make DIY Kids Apron:
This really is just a two step process, it’s almost not worth a tutorial. But, here we go.
Step 1: Purchase kids aprons from amazon or other retailer. These are the ones I bought in a size small. They come in other colors as well, but I just decided to stick with white.
Step 2: Buy iron on decals. I got mine from Etsy. You could also make your own if you have a cricut machine. I basically just typed in “Christmas iron on” on the etsy sight to find mine.
Step 3: Iron it on your aprons.
That’s it! It’s really that simple and then you have some super cute, personalized aprons for the kiddos.
Since I bought the 4 pack of kids aprons, I’m trying to figure out what I want to do with the other two. I’ll probably end up making ones that say Chef ____ on them so they have some aprons for year round, not just Christmas.
