I'm so excited to share this DIY with you! It's perfect for making personalized tea towels for you ktichen or for gifts! All you need are some plain tea-towels (these ones I got from Wal-Mart), a printer, some iron-on transfer paper, and a graphic you love (I got these gorgeous graphics from Antique Graphique on Etsy!).
Now for the how-to...
You'll want to start by reading the directions that come with your specific tranfer paper. Once you have the graphic you want, you'll want to print it out twice (or two copies on one sheet like I did) so that you can have the graphic on both ends of your towel (make sure you follow the printing directions for your paper, most kinds has a glossy side that you can't print on).
Cut each out, leaving a large boarder around the graphic. Lay, print side down, on your towel and iron evenly for however long your paper instructs. Let cool, and then gently peel off backing.
Now, at this point, you will probably notice the "halo" around your graphic from that extra paper. I really wanted mine to look almost like they were screen printed, so here's what I do (note - it gets a little messy, so try to use a cheap iron or at least one you don't have to use to iron shirts or anything - I pretty much only use mine for crafts). Use the point of your iron to lightly touch around the graphic, this will melt away the "halo" (keep a rag close by to carefully wipe your iron off so it doesn't burn onto the surface of the iron).
I decided to go with a sort of "equestrian" theme for mine. I love how they turned out and I feel like it makes the kitchen feel just a little bit "personalized"!
