A Quick Stenciled Dollar Tree Towel


Hi Friends!

Sometimes I get inspired when I see things at

the DOLLAR TREE.

This towel was perfect for stenciling!




You know I hate dirty stencils : )

but I used a black sharpie on this when I made it years ago!



Tape stencil to towel.

Slide a piece of scrap cardboard under towel in case of bleed through.




I used Black Acrylic paint and a stencil brush.

 Lay flat and stencil with very little paint on your brush.

If you want a darker look like I did, let dry a bit and come back with a second layer

of paint.


 After your stencil has dried get a clean cloth to cover,
Set with a hot iron.
This cookbook was part of my inspiration!


Do you like this towel ?

Doesn't it remind you of a  summer BBQ?

Thanks for visiting!

  2. I love the stenciled tea towel and that it matches your copy of my favorite cook book! Best recipe in there is the one for Hot Milk Sponge Cake.

  5. You know I do love a bit of gingham, especially if it's red :-)
    This is cute. Is it washable? Does the iron set regular acrylic paint too? Exciting if it does!

    1. Thank you! YES, I have washed the towel. It really surprised me years ago when I got acrylic paint on my shirt....and no way was it going to come out. I thought why pay extra for fabric paint. I always use acrylic to stencil pillows and I've never had a problem. Maybe it's because I iron set, I'm not sure.

  10. It's really cute! Is it a terry cloth towel? I don't like to print on those, I wish my Dollar Tree carried just woven towels.

    And my favorite cookbook too, and I agree with Vanessa above about the hot milk spongecake. Each year when my wild strawberries bloom it's a treat with fresh wild strawberries.

      It is more like a microfiber towel.
      Your strawberries on sponge cake sounds delicious!

  15. I have my late Mom's Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook, and I'm so partial to the checkerboard pattern. I love this sweet tea towel. What a lovely, easy, frugal craft. It would make a wonderful gift. Thank you so much for sharing this post with The Hearth and Soul Link Party, Lisa. I'm featuring it at this week's Hearth and Soul Link Party. Hope to see you there!

      Thank you so much. It really did add something to a basic towel. It's been washed a couple times now and still looks great.
      Thank you for the feature and I loved your comment.
