instructions

  1. Spread a good bit of Thicket onto your plate using a large paintbrush.
  2. Take your cookie cutter and place it on your paint covered plate. Move your cookie cutter around a little to make sure that it has picked up enough paint to use as a stamp.
  3. Pick up your cookie cutter and use it as a stamp on your tea towel. Reload your stamp and repeat until you have many trees on your tea towel.
  4. On a new plate/pallet, squirt out a dollop of your other colors.
  5. Use the butt end of your brush as a stamp (the end without bristles). Load your stamp with paint and place it inside of your tree shape to create colored lights.
  6. Repeat with each light color and allow to dry.
