Diy Tea Towels

Diy Tea Towels

"Bright, cheery DIY tea towels made from stencils and flexible fabric paint! These DIY tea towels are made from pretty botanical stencils and brightly colored fabric paint. Flexible, soft, and so easy to make whether it’s for spring or all year round. I always incorporate the seasons in by adding one or two pieces throughout the home. The perfect way to add a touch of spring is by adding accent tea towels you can hang from the cabinet, dishwasher, oven, or over the sink. Making these DIY tea towels is so easy using stencils and good quality paint, and they certainly don’t need to be just for springtime. "

Materials List

  • Tea towels in a neutral color we used double gauze 100% organic cotton
  • DecoArt SoSoft Fabric Acrylics in Dark Rose, Baby Pink Deep, Bright Avocado, Green Apple, Lamp Black
  • Americana Decor 8×8 Botanical Stencil
  • Americana Gloss Enamels Floral Stencil
  • DecoArt Stencils on a Ring, Whimsical Delight
  • Cardboard and paper towels


  1. Pre-wash tea towels without adding any fabric softeners. Leave them to dry fully and iron out any wrinkles if necessary.

  2. Place the tea towel on top of your work surface. To prevent paint from bleeding through the fabric, separate the layers with a piece of cardboard that is wrapped with plastic, freezer paper or foil.

  3. Visit for full tutorial.
