Stenciled Kitchen Towel ~ Perfect Wedding Gift!

DIY Stenciled Kitchen Towel - great wedding gift {Breezy Pink Daisies}

Today was a fun and exciting new craft day for me! I tried out some freezer paper stenciling and some adhesive stencils. I used some of the goodies in my giveaway winnings from the o-so-fabulous Jill at Create-Craft-Love! Thanks Jill! :)

What I used:
  • 5 pack kitchen towels from Wal-mart
  • Cricut machine with the Jasmine cartridge (my new favorite cartridge!)
  • Freezer Paper
  • Martha Stewart adhesive stencils (in my "craft swag bag" from Jill!)
  • Fabric paint (I have pictured Martha Stewart paints - also from Jill - which I was going to mix with fabric medium...but then remembered I have fabric paint, so I used that instead!)
First I cut out the letters for the monogram. The freezer paper goes on the mat shiny side down (the shiny side is the side that sticks to the fabric). The middle letter I cut at 3.5 and the outside letter at 2.75.

I cut out the letters on the freezer paper and ironed them right onto the towel. They weren't going anywhere!

Next, I started playing around with the adhesive stencils. I am shocked at how easy they were to use! I just peeled the stencil off the backing, stuck it on the towel, painted over it, and moved it to the next position.

 How fun! When you're done with the stencil, you just wash it off in the sink and stick it back where it came from to use it again.

Once the paint is dry you can peel off the freezer paper and iron over the painted design. But you can't iron right over the paint, so I put a t-shirt over top of the towel.

Ta-da! A perfect gift, especially when placed inside a beautifully etched 9x13!

  4. So cute! I've seen such cute projects using freezer paper stencils, I'm going to have to try it for myself!

  5. This might sound a lil messed up but... I am going to make myself a present! It will be something for my new house! When I get one anyways... they also have transfer paper at Michael's that is 9.99 for 10 sheets and you can run the image through the printer. I use that for pillows and stuff! Totally rocks.
