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.

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.
