Wash and dry a new drop cloth.
Cut out four sections of drop cloth, approximately 6" x 6".
Mix four colors in separate bowls. Mix 1 - 2 tablespoons of paint into 1 pint of water for each. Add more or less paint depending on how dark you want the color.
Submerge a section of drop cloth into each bowl. Remove and lay flat to dry. Once dry, iron pieces as needed with a cool iron.
Cut dyed drop cloth into strips approximately 2" wide.
Using a large lace paper doily as a stencil, place the doily over the painted strips of drop cloth. Use a foam brush to fill in the holes with white paint. Let dry.
Wrap drop cloth pieces around soap or other gifts. To finish, tie white twine around the package and add a button from your button collection.
