Holiday Tea Towel

Level: Easy

What You Need

  • 1×1 wood block
  • Foam sheet
  • Two ink pads, one green and one gold
  • Tea towel
  • Pencil
  • Marker
  • Hot glue gun
  • Scissors
  • Instructions

    1. Make Your Stamp

    Use your scissors to cut out the foam design. Once all the pieces are formed, stick them onto your wood block with hot glue.

    2. Stamp It Out

    Use a stamp pad to coat your foam pieces with ink. Then stamp the pattern onto a plain tea towel. Make sure to press firmly and don’t let the stamp slide around and smudge your design.

    You can stamp in a pattern or go crazy with placement. There’s no wrong way to style your towel.

    3. Give a Golden Touch

    When your tea towel is stamped to your liking, go back and add some easy detail. Take a pencil and press the eraser into a gold ink pad, then stamp that circle into the center of your pattern.

    Don’t stress about getting the circle exactly in the center — like with any DIY project, imperfection just makes it cuter.

    4. Add a Personal Note

    Find a corner of your towel to write a holiday message and sign your name. Fold it into an envelope and put it in the mail — you’re done!
