DIY Sharpie Tea Towels
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?

What a cool idea! I’ll have to remember this at Christmastime 🙂
Exactly! Thats what I was thinking! 🙂
Love this, I also love diy but haven’t the patience for long processes. This is perfect. Will be great for gift wrapping or a gift in itself!
Yes! crafts you can do in a short amount of time are the best!
You should do this for a REAL Women’s event or a Mom’s group craft!
Yes! I love crafts that can be done in one sitting.
Haha, yeah. The ones that take more are all the unfinished projects taking up space in my closets. 😉
Visiting from By His Grace group…I love this! I am not crafty in the least, but I really think I could do this one! You caught my attention with the sharpies! I’m a fan of anything sharpie related!! Thanks for sharing!
Thanks for visiting!! <3 lol, yes you should give them a go, they were super easy. 🙂
Very cute and simple craft! I will have to try this for sure. I don’t have any tea towels, but I love decorating and these would be sweet and inexpensive.
Thats what I was thinking! It took me all of 15 minutes. 🙂
So fun! I never would have thought of this, but it’s so great for gifts with a favorite verse or monagram. I think they even make waterproof fabric sharpies. So glad to visit from By His Grace bloggers.
Thanks for visiting Tiffany! <3
