Good morning, sweet friends! I was recently scanning Pinterest for inspiration for an easy Valentine craft. I came upon this fun craft that would be great to create for your friends and neighbors. It is also a wonderful craft to do with children.
VALENTINE TEA TOWEL
Flour Sack Tea Towel
Sponge Paint Brush
Decorative Trim (lace;ric rac)
Fabric Glue or Thread
The instructions are very simple for this project. First, I ironed the flour sack tea towel to smooth out the wrinkles. I then folded the towel to showcase the display side. Next, I placed a piece of cardboard underneath the strip of fabric I would be painting on. This is an important step and will keep the paint from bleeding through. Finally, I placed the doillie into place and dabbed the fabric paint onto the fabric with a sponge brush. Once the paint is applied, carefully remove the doillie.
Allow the tea towel to dry for at least 24 hours. Then, dry iron the towel using a pressing cloth to set the fabric paint. If you want to make your towel look extra special, you can add a pretty trim such as ric rac or lace. I used fabric glue to secure the trim. You could also sew it on if you choose. This was a project I did with my kids, so I wanted to keep it simple.
My kids really had a lot of fun with this project. It is super easy to do and would make a great Valentine for your friends and neighbors.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I will be back tomorrow for Tabescape Thursday, and on Monday I will be sharing my master bathroom remodel. I can’t wait for your to see it! I hope that you have a wonderful Wednesday!!!
