I have been trying to get rid of stuff that I’ve acquired over the past nine years that I’ve lived in this house. Okay, a lot of this crap I’ve had for years, but I feel like it’s really weighing me down. So after reading The 5 Second Rule by Mel Robbins, I decided to start doing the stuff I’ve been putting off…for years. Have you heard of the 5 Second Rule? Basically, you reframe your mind by counting 5-4-3-2-1 and then taking action on whatever you didn’t feel like doing. I’m not explaining it well, but it does work, and I’ve been using this method for the past week. Like when I’m halfway through a workout and don’t feel like finishing…5-4-3-2-1 GO and the thought leaves my head.
So I was going through the room where all my craft supplies are. My daughter has been saying that I don’t do enough crafts anymore, and she is definitely right. I was thinking about this when I came across this stencil that I purchased years ago. I still love the design and decided right then that I wanted to see it on a flour sack towel. So I did it. It was time for a break anyway!
- Sonic Border stencil
- Flour Sack Towel
- DecoArt SoSoft Fabric Paint in Glorious Gold and Lamp Black
- Foam Pouncer
The stenciling is pretty self explanatory. I did a light, but saturating coat of paint when using the pouncers.
After doing the first section with the stencil, I completely washed all the paint off from the stencil while the towel dried. Then once, dry, I lined up the stencil with the last row that was already painted and continued on.
All-in-all, it was finished in 45 minutes. Then just let it dry overnight and ironed it while covered with another towel with a very hot iron.
While it is okay to put it in the washer and dryer, I like to hang my stenciled kitchen towel upto dry, just to keep the color crisp.
I’m loving my black and white stenciled kitchen towel. It makes a good prop for food photos. I think this stencil will look really cute on a shower curtain…I think it will be my next project!
