archival stenciling on fabric...

it's THE most wonderful time of the year!

once December 1st arrives,
I'm ready to kick it in high gear 
with decorating & creating little gifts...

join me over on the Ranger blog & I'll show you how simple it is to create
 custom stenciled holiday towels...

remember...
archival inks are permanent on fabric when they are dry...
another reason I LOVE my archival inks!

in addition to the samples on the Ranger blog,
I made some others that I'll be sharing on 

these really take no more than 10 minutes, from start to finish...
seriously S I M P L E!

I picked up these towels at Home Goods,
 TJ Maxx & Marshall's...
nice quality...
great prices...


Hobby Lobby also has a really nice
 set of 3 towels...
they're located in the embroidery section & they are just perfect too...
the sets come in black, red & blue...



these make nice hostess gifts & I'm sending them this year instead of cards...

here's the list of supplies I used...

archival inks...

look great too...
you'll see that combo over at Ranger...

I like that color combo 
for an untraditional holiday palette...
and it's especially fun for 
those lucky friends
who live in warm climates...

ok...

I'll meet you over at Ranger...

then we'll...

make art!

Oh my goodness, Wendy, these are fabulous! You are going to make some people happy who get these instead of a Christmas card. What a totally cool idea. Thanks for all the great techniques you are sharing over at Ranger.

Hugs,
