DIY Bottle Print Tea Towel

Yay, my wrist is getting better, and our puppy is asleep, so I might just be able to finish this post!

So, last week I bought five tea towels/kitchen towels from Walmart, and wanted to make them into a series of monochrome ones. Last week I made one with a dandelion print, and here's number two!

How to:

Wash your tea towel. Draw & cut out different shaped and sized bottle stencils in a row on some contact plastic.

Adhere the plastic to the nether edge of your tea towel.

Dab fabric paint onto the stencils.

Remove the stencil. You're done!

The paint I used is by Scribbles, it dries in 4 hours and can be washed after 72 hours.

When dry, the painted shapes feel a bit stiff. Maybe they'll soften up in use and after washing?

I had a little help, too:
