DIY Holiday Tea Towel

Here’s how to make your own:

What you need

  • 1x1 wood block
  • Foam sheet
  • Two ink pads, one green and one gold
  • Tea towel
  • Pencil
  • Marker
  • Hot glue gun
  • Scissors

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, stamp, stamp!

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. The golden detail

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. Personalize it

We’re not quite finished yet... For the final touch, find a corner of your towel to write a holiday message and sign your name. All you have to do now is fold it into an envelope and put it in the mail!

We all have "blah" T-shirts that wind up rumpled and never worn. So we're on a mission to rescue those tees from the back of the closet — all it takes is punch of color! This rainbow cutie is definitely a hit with kids, but we invite grownups to get in on the action, too. Why not?
