I began with a couple of inexpensive white cotton tea towels.

Next I cut a heart out of vinyl just by folding it in half and cutting it with a scissor. 

Any kind of vinyl or contact paper is fine for this.

We are going to use the stencil heart, save the other heart for another project. 

I peeled off the backing and stuck it onto the freshly ironed tea towel.

Then laid my buffalo check stencil on top of the heart cut out.

Using pink craft paint, I stenciled carefully over the part with the open heart.

And that was it... it literally took 20 minutes and looks amazing.

I made one with a dark red craft paint while I was at it.

  1. Oh my, that stencil in the heart shape looks so good. I've been admiring that one for a while now. Love buffalo checks on anything and adding it to a tea towel works so well. Do you have to seal the paint afterwards?
