DIY Christmas Kitchen Towels

/ /

Good morning, friends!!! I hope you had a lovely weekend. I enjoyed our local Christmas tour of homes with my mom, my sister and a sweet friend. Check out my Instagram feed for photos!

Today, I’m excited to share a fun little project I whipped up – Easy DIY Christmas Kitchen Towels.

Aren’t they so adorable?! An embellished kitchen towel makes such a lovely handmade gift.

Supplies Needed:

  • Towels to embellish {I found mine at Joann’s and used a 40% off coupon.}
  • Trim {I bought two yards of each and had a little left over after decorating three towels.}
  • Thread to match trim
  • Fray check
  • Scissors and basic  sewing supplies
  • Sewing Machine
  • Iron

Pin trim to the towel using a ruler to make sure each row is straight. I tucked about 1/2″ under on each side of the towel.

Stitch each row in place. Trim threads carefully. Use fray check or another anti-fray product on the trim’s raw edges.

I washed and dried my towels and they came out perfectly. I ironed them and tied two together to gift. I’m pretty much in LOVE with the red gingham ruffled trim. So stinkin’ cute!

And you’re done! These towels took very little time to make and they make such a sweet and thoughtful handmade gift.

Have you made any handmade gifts this year? I would love to hear!

  1. Adorable! I may need to learn how to use my sewing machine that is sitting in the closet so I can make some of these! 🙂

  2. For those of us who do not sew or even have a sewing machine- could you suggest another way to make these?? I love them so much! I’ve used fabric-tac (i know, its sort of embarrassing to say that) and it didn’t hold up after too many washes 🙁 I guess I may just need to buckle down and learn to use a sewing machine?!
