DIY Stamped Tea Towels

diy stamped tea towels with lemon
An easy way to brighten your kitchen is with custom made tea towels. This project is rather inexpensive and super easy to do.
To make your own tea towels, you will need:
  • -tea towels (washed and ironed)
  • -paint for fabric
  • -fabric medium
  • -paint brushes 
  • -iron
I found almost all of my supplies at Joann’s Fabric and Craft Stores. I choose Martha Stewart’s paints because I really like her color selection.
A little important tip: be sure and purchase the fabric medium, it will help keep the paint soft and washable.
