Dollar Store Stamped Leaf Napkins and Tea Towels
In the Dollar Store (Dollar Tree specifically) you can find really great hemmed flour sacks. They are 30″ x 36″ and the perfect sized dish towel or tea towel! For $1!! I can hardly believe that. I used these flour sack towels and stamped them to use as dish cloths but I also cut them to size to create napkins.
Dollar Store Flour Sacks to Napkins
To create napkins, lay the flour sack on your work surface. measure into three sections, cut and hem the edges! Once the towels were cut and hemmed I stamped them to make the prettiest napkins. And at .30 each that is a great deal!

What Kind of Leaves Can Be Used to Stamp?
One of the reasons I chose this idea is the trees we have in our Avenues neighborhood. Our neighborhood is 150 years old and the trees are AMAZING! There are so many different varieties. One of my favorite hobbies is walking along our neighborhood streets, admiring the trees and flowers and the old houses! I chose a few leaves from my yard and my neighbor’s yard for this project. NOTE — something I discovered as I was stamping is leaves that have a sturdy stem do better than leaves that are kind of delicate.
How to Stamp Leaves on Dollar Store Flour Sacks
Gather your supplies — flour sack towels, leaves, fabric paint, brushes and paper towels.
Gather Your Supplies
Lay a couple of layers of paper towels down on your work surface.
Put Your Leaf on Paper Towels
Lay your leaf or stem on top of the paper towel with the back side of the stem showing. You want to paint the underside of the leaf or stem because that is where the veining is.
Paint Your Leaf
Use a sponge or small paint brush to paint the stem and leaves. Use a thick layer so it doesn’t dry out before you have the whole stem painted.
Lay Wet Leaf on Fabric
Add three layers of paper towel in a different space. Then lay the flour sack material on top of the paper towel. Flip the stem or leaf over and put it where you want it to go on the fabric, face down with the painted side down on top of the fabric.
Cover with Paper Towel and Roll
Lay two pieces of paper towels on top of the stem of leaf and use your rolling pin to roll it onto the fabric. I held onto the bottom of the stem as I did this so the stem didn’t move around on the fabric.
Peel Leaf off Fabric
Take the paper towels off and gently peel the stem up from the fabric.
Let Fabric Dry
Put the wet towel on newspaper and let it dry. After it is dry, iron to set the paint.
