DIY Hand Stamped Flower Towel

DIY Hand Stamped Flower Towel

    Lately I have been doing a lot of research into home decor for less and tried my hand at creating a DIY Hand Stamped Flower Towel.  One of the things that I have learned is that there are many cost-effective ways to reproduce decorating ideas.  This is a great way to update the decor in your home without breaking the bank.

      You would not believe how many projects can be done right at home with just a few materials.  My latest project is updating our bathroom this summer so I have also been looking at ways to add decorative towels and make it more beautiful without spending a lot.

    Below you will learn how to create hand stamped flower towels just like the ones that you can purchase in retail stores:

DIY Hand Stamped Flower Towel

Supplies needed:

– White cotton hand towel (.49 cents at IKEA)

– Fabric paint in choice of colors, non puffy and non dimensional

– Wood flower cut out (found at Dollar Tree or most craft stores)

– Plate

– Scrap paper

– Paint brush

– wine cork or bottle top

DIY Hand Stamped Flower Towel


1. Begin by laying the towel out flat so you can work on a flat, even surface.

2. Place some fabric paint (use non-puffy, non-dimensional paint only) on a plate.

3. Place the flower cut out on a towel. Dip the brush into your fabric paint and gently brush around the cut out, which will act as your stencil. If you wish, use the scrap paper to do a few practice tracings on.

4. Start at the corner of the towel and begin creating a pattern of your choice using the flower as your stencil. Place, paint around the flower, repeat.

5. Dip the end of a wine cork or bottle lid into another color of paint. Press the wine cork or bottle top into the center of the flower. Hold for a few seconds and release. Your flower will now look colorful and complete.

6. Once your pattern is created, allow your towel a good 2 hours to dry before gifting or displaying.

Your fabric paint can withstand water, so your towel can be used and washed just like any other towel!

  1. What a gorgeous towel for summer and spring! I totally want to make some hand stamped towels for all year now. Pumpkins for fall would be my first project!

  2. That’s so pretty! My first thought was won’t the paint bleed into the fabric so good that you mention it won’t 🙂

  3. This is an adorable craft. I love finding new ways to personalize my kitchen.

  4. This was super creative I love the design you chose. DIY projects are so relaxing and rewarding to see once it’s complete.

  5. I remember the old kitchen towels of years ago this reminds me of that. Very nicely done.

  6. This is such a cute DIY! I really like the design of the flowers. The color is so pretty.

  7. These are really cute! I would love to make these or something similar. Maybe one day I will have all my craft supplies back where I can access them.

  8. What a beautiful piece to make on your own. I love that you can create a DIY hand stamped flower towel. The color scheme is perfect too, I will be trying this with the teen!

  9. What a fun craft to do this summer! Thanks for sharing.

    This is really cute! I love that it’s a quick and inexpensive craft! I’ve made my own curtains to save money, I also try to reuse and repurpose as much as I can.

  11. Nice DIY. Is the color permanent? Also let me know the brand of color that last longer.

  12. This is nice because my kitchen is a specific orange that I am having an undeniably hard time matching so maybe I’ll just buy paint and make my own dish towels.

  13. What a great idea!! You could also customize this with initials or a sweet message. It would make a nice gift for teachers, neighbors, etc…

  14. That is a great DIY idea. I love the simplicity of the pattern. It would make a great gift for moms or grandmothers!

  15. What a cute DIY idea! This towel would make a great gift idea for a housewarming basket!

  16. This is a nice and creative idea. Simple enough but great to make your own stuff. I like gifts that are self-made, so this would be nice to make for someone too.

  17. What a great creative project I love this towel and would like to create one of my own.

    This is so pretty. It would be a great craft for the kids to make for gift for their grandparents. I love homemade gifts.
