Christmas Tea Towels with @ilovetocreate #TulipShimmer

Now that Thanksgiving is over, are y’all getting into the Christmas spirit?  I have a super simple project for you that will bring some Christmas cheer to your home or make a great gift for someone special.  My Christmas tea towels are easy to make with Tulip Shimmer Sheets and Tulip Shimmer Paints




I was sent a huge box of supplies from I Love To Create full of great Tulip products.  I made a quick one minute video for y’all so you can see all that was in my box.  Plus hear a southern accent.  It is like a win win don’t ya think?  
Alright now let’s get to work.  I started with a tea towel and the Tulip Shimmer Sheets.  I prewashed the tea towel and ironed it.


The shimmer sheets are amazing.  You cut out any shape with scissors or even a craft cutter.  Then just use an iron to adhere to your surface.  I free handed some poinsettia shapes with scissors and tried them out on my towel.

Once everything looked good, I started ironing to my towel.  Starting with my first set of petals.

I added in a second smaller set of petals.  I just laid them right on top.  Then followed the instructions for ironing them on. 

I then added some even smaller petal shapes in the center in gold.

I used another gold sheet to cut out small circular shapes and adhered those right on top.  I then broke out the fabric glue and glitter.

I made some leaf shapes with the glue and added tons of green glitter.

And really just that simply I had one tea towel done.  The shimmer sheets make projects like this quick and easy.

The second tea towel I made was even simpler (I know right how can it get simpler??).  I cut a couple of triangles and rectangles.  Adhered them with my iron.  I had another tea towel with some modern trees.

Two tea towels within a few minutes time and perfect for gift giving.

Or use to spruce up your own kitchen for the holidays!
