DIY Gift: Tea Towel Stamping

Christmas Tea Towel

If you’re feeling crafty and want to get homemade with your holiday gift giving this year, this tea towel stamping project might be right up your alley!

Now that we have officially said goodbye to Thanksgiving, I think it’s acceptable to everyone that we focus on the holidays right? Haha! It is not only the time of year for holiday gift shopping and gift giving, but it’s also  the perfect time for a little gift MAKING action! Luckily, I happen to have a little lady in my life, my baby girl, who is up for any and all crafts. She gets excited at the mere sight of craft supplies. So, DIY holiday gifts are most definitely up her alley.

And I bet I’m not the only mama who has a crafting fanatic at home. Projects like the easy stamped tea towel that I am sharing today are perfect for a little family bonding time. Did I mention that they’re quality boredom busters too? You Northern friends of mine probably have some snow days headed your way, so keep those craft closets stocked up! And at the end of this project you will have wonderful gifts to hand out to family and friends!

DIY Holiday Tea Towels

Read on for how we made stamped holiday tea towels. All of these supplies can be found at any of your large craft stores. If the one in your neck of the woods doesn’t have white tea towels, Home Goods, Target or Walmart will most likely have them. 

Materials:
White tea towels
Red and green puffy paint
Cookie cutters
Paper plate
Cardboard or card stock

Directions:
1. Wash and iron the towels.
2. Fold the towels back up according to the lines.
3. Cut a piece of cardboard/card stock out to slide under the area you are stamping.
4. Squirt puffy paint onto a paper plate (I put swirls in mine so that when I paint I get a little of each color on my cookie cutter).
5. Dip the cookie cutters in the paint and stamp them onto the tea towels.
6. You can also use your finger to stamp.
7. Let the towels dry overnight or at least 12 hours before you wash/use/give away.

And that is all there is to it my friends! Don’t stamped holiday tea towels just make the cutest homemade gift to work on with the kids? They are perfect to give to a teacher because they have such a personal feel. Of course, I would also include a gift card in that particular package. Bwah! Hey, they spend 6 hours a day with my kids while I get to work in peace and quiet. They deserve a gift card and then some!
