Need some ideas for DIY holiday decorations while the kids are off of school for the break? This holiday tea towel is not only a fabulous craft and decoration…it also makes a perfect gift, especially paired with my free printable baking gift tags. This project is very easy…just requires a bit of set up from a grown up and then let the kids have fun with it!
This was such a fun kids’ craft, y’all! My son and I enjoyed working on it together. We’re going to be giving them to some of his teachers for a sweet holiday gift. Check out the entire tutorial below.
The supplies for this one are easy. First and foremost, you’ll need a roll of Bounty Paper Towels to clean up the mess…kids’ crafts are fun, but they tend to get messy! I used a prefabricated stencil, but you can easily create one (in any shape you like) with card stock and a crafting knife. My shape is a simple pine tree. You could also do stars or bows or anything your heart desires.
We also used fabric markers, masking tape, and plain white flour sack towels.
Please keep in mind, these tea towels are purely decorative in nature…they make great DIY holiday decorations to hang on the front of your stove during the season.
Begin by laying out your Bounty Paper Towels over your work surface.
They’ll make clean up a breeze!
I decided to cut my stencil into rows for the bottom of my towel.
I taped my stencils in place to make this easy for my son to work with. I measured from the bottom of my stencil to the bottom of the towel to keep it even. We did an even row of trees along the bottom of the towel.
Find a cute kiddo to help you out! Since I set this up completely, his part was fun…coloring! We used the green and brown fabric markers to color in the pine tree stencils.
This is a kids’ craft that can span a wide age range…
it’s a simple coloring activity for a cute holiday design.
Clean up is simple…throw away the paper towels laid under the towel and clean your surface with Bounty Paper Towels. Sometimes fabric markers can bleed through, so make sure to get all the stray marks.
After your towel dries, pull off the tape and stencils to reveal a fun design!
This was my son’s favorite part.
I used baker’s twine, a jingle bell, and my free printable baking tags to wrap up this simple gift. I added a rubber spatula to complete the present.
Super fun, right? Who wouldn’t love to receive this?
Be sure to have plenty of Bounty Paper Towels on hand for the holiday season. While the holidays are a joyous time, they also deck the halls with messes. When entertaining guests, the last thing you need is to run out of paper towels that help keep your home tidy. Stock up on Bounty paper towels before the season kicks into full gear!
And after all of the holiday parties comes the “dreaded” clean up. When messes strike, make sure you have plenty of Bounty paper towels on hand to quickly and easily pick up.
