I tried three different techniques and they are all various levels of “easy”!
I used flour sack towels from Target. You can also find them at Walmart. I think it was about $6 for 4 of them. You also need some fabric paint and a sponge brush.
The first towel is so easy that I don’t really have any process pictures to show you. All I did was find an old lid and dip in the fabric paint and “stamp” it on.
For the next one, I cut various strips of freezer paper.
Iron the freezer paper down, shiny side down onto the towel.
Put a newspaper under your towel and paint with as sponge brush in between the freezer paper strips.
Once it’s dry, peel it off….and you have a sweet little striped towel!
Finally, I decided I needed an owl towel to go with my other 2 owls in the kitchen. (thanks Erin for the cute container!)
I found a silhouette of an owl online, and using an exacto knife cut it out of freezer paper.
Once it’s cut, iron the freezer paper, shiny side down onto your towel
Paint on the inside of the owl with fabric paint and once it’s dry, peel it off. Done!
I think they spruce things up a bit in the kitchen
You could use the freezer paper to make funny sayings or personalized images and give them as gifts.
