Kitchen Craft: Diy Dishtowels


 How about an easy kitchen craft? I was looking for new dishtowels for the kitchen and realized that all the cute ones are pretty pricey! So, I decided to try to personalize my own. It ended up being super fun and something that would be a great gift. You could do so many fun things with these little dishtowels. (I also made some beautiful marbled dish towels and some child’s artwork embroidery dish towels if you need even more ideas!)

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.

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.
