DIY Tea Towels


Tea towels, or kitchen towels, are a great statement piece to add to your kitchen.

They can be fun, vintage, bold or full of lace – they are a great way for you to show off your personality in the kitchen.

Today I wanted to share some great ideas and tutorials in order for you to make your own tea towels. Keep in mind that these work amazing as a fun, personalized addition to gift baskets for weddings or wedding showers. Personalize with quotes the happy new couple may say to each other or even monogrammed. Use colors that are consistent to what the bride has in her gift registry to make these towels match her future kitchen!


This amazing tutorial from Spoonflower shows you how to transfer am old family recipe into this beautiful towel. This would be a fun piece for your own kitchen, or if you are able to come across a recipe that is a couple generations old, imagine the smile on your mothers face if you were to give this to her as a Mothers Day or Birthday gift.

This tutorial from Shelterness shows you how to make these beautiful towels using fabric markers and stencils. I think it would be especially fun to make some towels that match your china pattern or other kitchen decor using this method.
