If you’re currently craving salty & sun-drenched summer days… you’re not alone. With beach weather just around the corner, here’s a fun DIY you’ll use for all the lazy days you’ll spend beach-bummin'.
Before achieving total beach bum status, here’s what you’ll need:
- Beach Towels (we suggest picking darker & bright colors as they seem to bleach the best)
- Spray Bottle
- Foam Brush
- Rubber Gloves
- Stencils (or if you’re feeling extra crafty you can make your own)
Decide on the phrases you want your towel to say! We scrolled through our Pinterest page to get some ideas.
Mix a solution of half water & half bleach in your spray bottle. Lay out your towel in a well-ventilated area, preferably outside.
Using your stencils lay out your desired phrase on the towel. Keep in mind to leave a little bit of space in between each letter as the bleach tends to ‘bleed’.
Using your bleach solution you made in your spray bottle, dip your foam brush into the solution & lightly dab over your stencil. You’ll notice the letters will begin the bleach & begin to turn white.
Move to the next letter & repeat until you finish your word/phrase.
Once all of your letters are bleached to your liking, take your towel to a bathtub or sink & wash out the bleach. Go ahead & toss your towels in the washer to remove the bleach smell. Air dry them on a clothes line (or in our case…this bamboo fence!)
Pack a bag + take your towel to the beach! Don’t forget to bring your favorite bikini with you!
