Do you have piles of artwork that your kiddos have brought home from school, daycare or made at home? Want another way to display their artwork other than hanging it on the fridge or framing it?
Here’s a fantastic way to display your kids art in a space we spend a lot of the time; the kitchen! So turn your kid’s art into DIY tea towels: your kiddos will feel so special and proud to see their drawings on display.
This would also be an excellent gift idea for grandparents, aunts, uncles and teachers! Birthdays, Christmas or ‘just because’!
Fun Home Decor Idea and Kids Craft- Turn Kids Art into Tea Towels:
Below is the picture I used for this project; our youngest boy, R, drew this picture of our family when he was 9 years old. This picture just makes me smile every time I look at it and now I can have it in my kitchen too! Isn’t he a terrific artist? ( He’s really been enjoying reading the comments on this post so say hello to R if you can!)
Look at all the love arrows we have going on here, and the cheery sun with sunglasses! (apparently I have a verrry long torso and tiny short legs!! Even that makes me smile!)
- 1 white high quality natural fabric towel like this tea towel.
- 1 permanent marker
- Your children’s artwork
Wash and dry the towel.
Place drawing under towel and trace it.
That.Is.It!!! You’re done!
I have washed mine and the printing didn’t disappear or ‘bleed’ at all. The towels take on a lovely slight faded appearance as the towel fibers move slightly as they are washed. I use Woolite detergent, since certain detergents containing powerful stain fighters that may cause the print to fade excessively. I choose to wash mine in cold water but they can be washed in hot water.
My little artist just made this DIY Bokeh Art too! Whitewashed multicoloured circles look like Bokeh Photography!
