Painted Tea Towels & Utensils
Here’s a simple, inexpensive, customize-able, DIY project perfect for a bridal shower or housewarming gift! I don’t have a step by step photos, but you’ll find instructions and resources below.
I purchased the flour sack towels from Target
and found the set of bamboo utensils at Big Lots
. First I used painters tape to tape off the patterns and stripes on the towels and utensils. I mixed up one color at a time using acrylic paint that I already had on hand. First, I painted the utensils. Then added fabric medium
to the color and painted the the towels. I repeated this for each of each of the colors I used. I used an iron to heat set the paint onto the towels and then washed them. To finish the utensils, I did a few coats of polycrylic
just on the handles where the stripes were painted for durability. Please let me know if you have any questions! Enjoy!
