Simple Stenciled Tea Towels

Stenciled Tea Towels are the perfect bit of décor you can easily change add and change out from season to season, holiday to holiday!  I absolutely love them!   You can normally find them in most stores however why buy ones when you can easily make some yourself?  Thanks to We R Memory Keepers for bringing you this project!

Stenciled Tea Towels

Supplies Needed:

  • Evolution Die Cutting Machine
  • Genius Platform
  • Tea Towel (found at the Dollar Tree)

  • Flower Punches
  • Paint in your two color choices
  • Paint brush

To start out I cut out my die using my Evolution and my Genius Platform from Lifestyle Crafts.

Instead of using the cut out dies…I used the negative piece of my cardstock to create a cute stencil!

I taped down my stencil on my tea towel.  I previously folded my towel to make sure I had the stencil in the correct place but after taping down, be sure to unfold your towel so the paint does not bleed on the folds underneath!  I also taped over the part of the stencil I didn’t want to paint!

I applied a thin even coat of paint and let dry.

Spring Stenciled Tea Towel

Remove your stencil and Voila!  In a matter of minutes I had myself a seriously cute spring tea towel!

Paint Stenciled Tea Towel

I used The Pearl finish of Martha Stewart Craft paints so there is a shimmer in them!

    • Thanks Crystal! I am a big fan of those MS Pearl paints. Just enough shimmer in them to make me (the only girl) happy but little enough that my boys don’t freak about from too much sparkly stuff ;-)

  1. I made some with ones I purchased, gold reindeer for my Christmas theme. They were so easy, but I use freezer paper to cut out with my cricut and then when you iron it on it sticks good so you don’t bleed through with the paint. Then it pulls of just perfect. I think as my husband retires I will start making things like that, who can’t use a towel per season or something.
