Mom To Mom – Homemade Gift Ideas – Christmas Tea Towels

This is a great, easy do-it-yourself gift that you can give to either a grandparent or a coworker and have your kids get involved. It’s really simple to do. All you need are some tea towels, some cookie cutters, some acrylic paint, some plates, and of course a paint brush.

Take your tea towel and kind of lay it flat on the surface. I like to use a garbage bag underneath just to make sure that you don’t get any paint on the counter. Then once you have your tea towel laid out, you’re going to take your acrylic paint and put it in your plate. Now you want to get enough on there to where you can put your cookie cutter in, and then you’ll take your paintbrush to kind of spread it out a little bit, leaving kind of a lot of paint in the middle. Once you’ve got that ready to go, then you can take your cookie cutter and push it into the paint and then mash it down on the tea towel. You can do whatever pattern you like on the tea towel. You can mix up the cookie cutters, mix up the colors. However you want to do this, go ahead and do it.

Mom To Mom Christmas Tea TowelsIt’s a really fun activity, especially to do with the kids. The best part is they make wonderful gifts. I happened to find some napkin rings that just dress it up a little bit, to make it super cute for a Christmas gift. Put it in a bag and then you’re ready to go.

Moms, if you’ve got any great ideas, we’d love to hear about it. You can post them to our Facebook page, and be sure to check out our Mom To Mom page for more tips.
