Do you follow me on Instagram? If, so you've probably seen me share these on there already. Are you a tea towel or flour sack towel person? I guess the real question is, if the answer is yes, which do you prefer to call it? :). We received quite a few tea towels for our wedding that were hand embroidered and I was so touched by the gift. Even the cat ones (despite cats not being my thing). They were well done and I knew so much love went into them.

Fast forward 14 years, many of our tea towels are holey and well beyond used. They have definitely needed to be replaced for a while. Two years ago I painted these colorful tea towels that I love to use. I found an extra white one in my craft supplies and was very inspired by my diy tree wrapping paper, I decided to do the same to my white tea towel.

DIY Painted Tree Flour Sack Tea Towels


Step 1:

You can add a fabric medium, but I have found that acrylic is very permanent and doesn't wash out in the wash. Water down  your colors but not so that they are quite watercolor consistency. 

Step 2: 

Paint your trees. There isn't a way to do it better. I simple did stick trees and I love it. Let dry and wash and use.
