I absolutely love puffy paint! The puffy effect it gives once added to fabric or any hard surface really appeals to me.
After the holidays, I purchased a pack of tea towels at Target on clearance for $1.99. They were great as they were, but I decided to add to them with some puffy paint. Which can be purchased at craft stores for about a buck!
I looked around my house for some inspiration and found it in a pillow.
I love this pattern and it was pretty simple to duplicate.
Using simple round objects and a ruler, I traced my pattern in pencil.
Then I dotted over the lines with the puffy paint.
I waited 3 days for the paint to dry completely. Then I washed it, to remove the pencil marks.
I ironed the tea towel on a cool setting on the opposite side of my pattern, after letting it air dry.
I love the way it turned out! The pattern makes me happy!
There's so much you can do with puffy paint. It's not just for decorating t-shirts!
