Tips to Making A DIY Summer Wreath With Heat Transfer Vinyl
- Certainly, give yourself plenty of time to do the layering of the HTV. You really don't want to rush it because then it may not turn outright. For example, love your lemon-and to do that, you'll need to take your time and readjust as you go.
- For instance, you don't need to feel like it has to be perfectly aligned, either. Above all, just make it organic it's a lemon.
- Wear gloves when you tie-dye. Any kind will do. I have done it with the big yellow gloves here--but those latex gloves will work or any glove. Just protect your skin because you'll have colorful cuticles if you don't!
- Lastly, use more dye to color the whole kitchen towel or less dye to leave white spots. I went with fully saturated, but I might try making it again with some white spots-tie-dyeing was fun!
- Iron the kitchen towel after you let it dry. This will help set the colors, no matter what dye you've used. Plus, it's going to make cutting the towel way easier than if you let it remain all wrinkly.
- Have fun when you're placing the colorful bits of the towel on the flower wreath form. See a fun splash of color you like? Cut off the pieces on either side and make sure to place your pretty color on top!
- As for door decorations, this fun wreath was really easy to make. The fact that the supplies can be purchased for cheap makes things that much better!
