Cute farmhouse kitchen towels can add the perfect touch of farmhouse decor to your kitchen. A little color, a little softness, and all super useful at the same time. But finding cute ones that don't break the bank can be a challenge.
Until now... what if you made your own, custom kitchen towels. Perfect for your kitchen or a gift! And the best part?? It takes just a couple of minutes!! Want to see how??
My friend Amanda and I had a little craft party and we knocked these out quick!! Here's what we did.
DIY Farmhouse Kitchen Towels:
First you'll need to find some cute kitchen towels. (I bought these at Ikea). Wash and iron them. (Don't skip this step! If you are like me, you would be tempted too, but don't! You need a nice flat surface so no wrinkles!!)
We used a Chalk Couture Ink Mat (it's sticky!) underneath the kitchen towel. You don't HAVE to have that, but it is very helpful. If you don't have one be sure to put a piece of cardboard or something down so the ink doesn't get on your table. Also a few weights in the corners of your towel would be really helpful to keep it in place.
Pick out your transfer and place it just where you want it. These transfers all came from this Farmhouse Transfer pack. Cut each image and place it where you want it!
Once the ink is applied and smoothed out, peel back your transfer. This is the most fun part - the moment of reveal!
Ahhhh!! So cute!!
Once the ink is dry, you'll set it (making it permanent) by placing a piece of parchment paper over the design, and ironing it for 4 minutes.
We also made this Windmill one.
And this one "let's Stay home" - I think this saying is just about my favorite.
And we went a little crazy with the farm animals, just because we could! The possibilities are endless!!
Now they are ready to adorn kitchens everywhere! These (and so many more designs) will be available next weekend at Kinsey Vintage Market!! I can't wait for everyone to see them!
I'm not even joking when I say, Chalk Couture (and ink) is so much fun to play with!! Grab your girlfriends and make something special. Check out my chalk shop here.
Until next time,
