What I Did With Puffy Paint- part 2

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! 

You can view what else I did with puffy paint here and here, if you like!

  26. Puffy Paint. "shut the front door"...

    Everytime I see an idea on here I go to michaels (or Lowes in some cases) and purchase the supplies needed, only to later store them away in hopes that my creative juices will flow like yours one day... lol
