I’m gearing up for my big Holiday Housewalk tomorrow, although they are starting today, so pop over to Jennifer Rizzo to check it out! While I put the finishing touches on my tour, I thought I would share a quick Christmas craft with you.
One of my easiest tips, that I use all the time to decorate is to grab a cute seasonal tea towel and frame it. I couldn’t find a frame that would fit this tea towel I found at H&M, so I built one out of scrap wood I had in the garage. You can totally do this one if you have a staple gun and a little miter box and saw. You don’t even need power tools, although it’s more fun with them :)
Okay here is the tutorial:
– First, cut your wood to size, depending on the size of your towel. I sanded mine down a bit in spots to get an old wood vibe.
– Next, staple your wood together. You could also use little metal brackets like I used here for my flag frame, but I didn’t have any on hand. Notice my ahem, perfectly level cuts, the beauty of going for the rustic look ;)
– Then just staple your towel to the back of your frame. I usually put a staple in each side to get it exactly where I want it and then work back and forth getting it tight.
– I stapled ribbon on so I could tie it to the hooks in my kitchen, but you could staple a piece of twine across the back to hang it on nail otherwise too.
That’s it, cute DIY Tea Towel Art for just a few bucks! Don’t forget to come back tomorrow to check out my full Christmas tour, I can’t wait!
