An easy hostess gift!
- Time:30 mins + wash & dry time
1Lay dry, cotton tea towel flat on a protected work surface and add "2015" stickers (or other desired sentiment) directly to it. Press stickers firmly in place.
2Mix dye with hot water in the spray bottle as per the instructions on the bottle. Shake well to mix. Spray the dye all over the tea towel. (Note: submerging the tea towel directly in the dye will make the stickers come off.) Tip: once you have sprayed your tea towel completely with dye, spray it with fixative and let it sit 20 minutes. This improves color retention. You can also wrap the tea towel in plastic cling wrap and microwave it for about 30-60 seconds (make sure there is no metal on your tea towel and that the towel doesnÂ’t touch the side of the microwave). The steam from this process helps the dye work its way into the fibers improving color retention.
3Rinse towel until the water runs clear. Then machine wash separately with an old towel to absorb any excess dye.
4Once the tea towel is dry, wrap your champagne in the towel and tie it with a pretty ribbon. Trim excess ribbon.
