This is just about the quickest and most simple craft ever–my favorite kind of project. And the perfect way to add a little flair to an ordinary dish towel. It’s not perfect and I like it that way 😉

Materials:
A simple dish towel. I bought this one from Ikea for super cheap.
Fabric paint or acrylic paint combined with a textile medium (also found on the paint aisle).
Sponge paint brush.
Thick cardstock to make a honeycomb stencil.
Craft cutter such as a Silhouette.

I used my Silhouette to cut out a Honeycomb stencil with cardstock.

I used washi tape to secure the stencil in place. Painters tape would also work well.

I was out of sponge paint brushes so I actually put paint on a paper towel and dabbed it onto the dish towel.  Because the stencil had such thin lines I had to be very carfeul to work slowly and hold down the skinny pieces with my hand as I painted.

Then I lifted the stencil carefully and allowed the paint to dry. That was it. I would love to make a set of these in a bunch of different colors. I think it would make a fun house warming gift.

    I love that and especially the idea of a bunch of colors for a gift. Maybe along with a jar of local honey. Also thinking that a smaller print on some onesies for a newborn gift would be stellar.
