How To Make A Farmhouse Christmas Tea Towel
- Ikea Tea Telka Towels
- Iron Orchid Designs Decor Stamps – Typesetting
- Iron Orchid Designs Decor Stamps – Queen Bee
- Iron Orchid Design Ink – Charcoal Grey
- Iron – with mum or dads help
Step 1 – Give your tea towel an iron to get the creases out. Peel off the wreath stamps from the Queen Bee Decor Stamps and line them up on your tea towel where you want them. Then peel off the lowercase letters from the Typesetting Decor Stamps and line them up. Make sure that you leave enough room for any double letters that you have to use. For example, for Merry Christmas, I spaced out the r’s in Merry so that there’s enough room for me to go back and apply the r. Tape together 2 pieces of the top plastic layer from the stamps and place over your design. Press firmly to make sure that the design has adhered to the plastic.
Step 2 – Pop out some ink onto an old plate or tile. Using your brayer roll up and down in the puddle of ink. Then go left to right until you have a nice smooth puddle. Apply to your stamps and then apply your stamp carefully to your tea towel. Hold gently with one hand and then lightly rub over your design with your other hand. Remove the design from your tea towel. Let dry for 24hrs.
Step 3 – Pop your tea towel onto your ironing board. Then lay an old piece of cloth or another old tea towel over your design. Iron over your design to heat set.
And there you have a fun way to add some Christmas sprinkles to some plain tea towels. You can also just free stamp if you feel comfortable. The possibilities are endless.
