Happy Holidays: DIY Stenciled Holiday Tea Towel

Happy Holidays everyone!! I’m Cheryl, the self proclaimed neat freak and voice behind TidyMom.net. I bake, craft and clean while managing a camera in one hand and a cup of coffee in the other. I’m super excited to be a part of Jen’s Holiday event! I’m blown away by all the creativity and inspiration! When it comes to crafts, I like simple and easy. I’m here today to share a craft idea that is perfect for holiday decorating and gift-giving.

Stenciled Holiday Tea Towel

These Stenciled Holiday Towels can be made in minutes, and they require a only few easy-to-find supplies. Let’s get started!

Supplies:

 

Stenciled Holiday Tea Towel

Directions:

Place a piece of cardboard underneath the towel so the paint doesn’t bleed thru the other side.

Next, lightly spray the stencil with some spray adhesive so the stencil stays in place (or you could use masking tape to secure the stencil to the fabric). Add a little paint to you brush and gently dab it around inside the stencil. (tip: you may want to place tape over the surrounding stencils so you don’t accidentally get paint in a spot you don’t want).

Carefully remove stencil and cardboard and you are done!! You could easily make several of these in a matter of minutes! Don’t you just love an easy craft?!

Set aside for a bit to dry (I’m not sure how long this took, I didn’t touch them for an hour or so, but they were probably dry sooner.

They would make a nice gift, just fold and tie with ribbon, garnished with a small ornament and candy cane! Gift with a loaf of homemade quick bread or just some holiday candy and a hand painted mug!!

    • You can set the paint by ironing or tumble drying.
      Allow 24 hours for your towels to air dry; then heat set. Two heat setting methods are recommended:
      Dryer method-
      Turn garment inside out; place item in dryer for 30 minutes on highest setting allowed for the type of fabric used.
      Iron Method:
      Place decorated item right side up on ironing board; cover with dry pressing cloth. Set iron to highest setting allowed for fabric used. Place dry iron (no steam) on area pressing for 30 seconds, lift iron moving to another area until all sections are heat set.

      If you heat set it after painting, it can be washed in the washing machine on a gentle cycle. I would then hang it to dry.
