The one area of my home that always seems to lack Christmas decorations is the kitchen, so these simple-to-make Christmas light towels were the perfect way to add a little cheer. With Tulip Dimensional Fabric Paints, the design is not only easy to draw but stands up against heavy use and washes. Package them up for a thoughtful Christmas gift, or use them all season-long!
Step 1: Fold the dish towel in half and lay on a flat surface. Use the pencil to draw the light cord, making loops across the towel in two rows.
Step 2: Trace the pencil marks with black Tulip paint.
Step 3: Determine your desired order of colors. Every approximate inch along the black cord, paint an oval shape, alternating colors all the way across the towel. This creates the colored "bulbs."
Step 4: Once all of the bulbs have been painted, use the black paint again to connect the bulbs to the cord, painting a small square "fixture" over the top of the oval.
