My favorite kind of crafts are the ones I can do in one sitting. Here is a super easy one: decorating tea-towels with Sharpie pens…
Tea towels can be used to dry your drinking glasses, line a bread basket, keep table food warm, dry and store leafy greens, and line crisper drawers. They can also be used as napkins, creative gift wrap, sandwich wrap, or just a cute little touch of beauty to hang in your kitchen.
This was a quick, fun craft I was able to do while my kids joined me at the kitchen table with their watercolor paints. 🙂
Sharpie Tea Towels
- A Tea Towel or a Flour-Sack Towel (I used Flour-Sack Towels)
- Fine point permanent Sharpie marker
- One or both of these designs Home OR With Faith
- Flatten out design area by ironing out the wrinkles.
- Put the design under the towel and trace the design with your fine-point pen. (You can use a thicker tip, but I wouldn’t do it around the edges of the design or it will bleed and your lines won’t look as crisp.)
So easy and very cute! I think I’m going to make some of these for wrapping gifts, perhaps even do some monogram ones.
I haven’t washed mine yet, so I can’t tell you how they hold up in the wash. From what I’ve read, you should let them sit with the ink a few days and they should be fine. (I’ll update if I discover something different.)
Happy Tea-Towel decorating! 🙂
What do you use Tea Towels or Flour-Sack Towels for? Do you have any other fun design ideas you want to pass along?
