I made these quick and easy kitchen towels using a stencil from the book Stencil Me In by Marthe Le Van and DecoArt SoSoft Paints. My nephew and soon-to-be-niece are getting married this holiday season and I wanted to make something truly unique for them. As I was looking at the wedding registry online, I saw a white and black bathroom mat, the bride picked out. I instantly thought how elegant that would look on some kitchen towels. Her kitchen colors were going to be red, black and white, and the stencil coordinated with her taste so well. I picked up some cotton weave tea towels from my local craft store and used the white as the base of my stenciled design. If you haven’t stenciled on fabric before be aware that you will need more paint on your brush than you use on hard surfaces especially if you are using a light color on a dark towel like I did. After removing the stencil I shaded in the red on the flower and some of the dot clusters.
You could also add stenciled details to napkins or placemats and have a complete elegant set
