She enjoys putting her own twist on crafts and recipes to make them simple and enjoyable enough that even the non-crafter and baker will love to do!

Lay the tea towel out and pick it up from the center and let the edges fall. Gather the bottom and tie off with twine or rubber bands. This will create the white gap from where the green top and pink bottom will be sprayed.

Moms of Tulsa Watermelon 3As you spray make sure you pull open the creases and pull out the white inside that needs to be sprayed. Open and spray in all the creases.

Moms of Tulsa Watermelon 4After Finishing the bottom move to the top and start to spray the green. Make sure you hold the pink away from the green so the colors don’t blend together. Spray in all the creases like you did with the pink.

Moms of Tulsa Watermelon 5After you are done spraying all your color, follow the directions on how to dry on the back of the bottle. Most say to air dry for 30 minutes then throw in the dryer on high for 30 minute to set the colors. Once dry, I ironed all the wrinkle out. Lay out flat then use the black fabric paint pen to add your seeds. There is no rhyme or rhythm to this…add as many or as little as you like till you are satisfied with your look of your watermelon.
