Wellness Focus: Custom Sleeping Mask
Catching some major Zs each night is crucial to our health and wellness, but it isn't always easy. Lights and sounds from nearby TVs, family or friends talking in the other room, pets, traffic outside ... you get what we mean. Sometimes it's just not easy to fall asleep - or focus on our meditation practice - with everything else going on around us! Increase your chances of getting a more restful night's sleep or a deeper meditation for improved wellness with a sleeping mask customized with Tulip® ColorShot Instant Fabric Color. Crafterward shows you how easy it is to create your own special sleep or meditation goals wording on a sleeping mask to inspire you on your wellness and relaxation journey. And as an added bonus, this creative activity makes for a fantastic and useful art therapy project too!
What you need:
- Sleeping masks
- Freezer paper
- Cutting machine or craft knife & pencil to create your own stencil
- Painter's tape
Using a cutting machine, cut out your desired stencil onto a piece of freezer paper (cut with the waxy side down so you can iron onto the mask). If you don’t have a cutting machine, you can trace a design onto freezer paper, then cut it out with a craft knife. Iron your stencil(s) waxy side down onto your sleeping mask.
Use painter's tape to tape off all of the exposed areas of the eye mask to protect from overspray. Spray a light coat of ColorShot over the stencil openings and let dry. Repeat as necessary until you are happy with the coverage. Remove the tape and stencil and let dry completely.
Now you're one step closer to achieving your wellness goals (in a super cute eye mask no less)! Put on your comfy clothes, cover those peepers and get ready to relax.
