Monogrammed Dishtowels

This is probably one of the easiest projects I have shared…..

I’m a little embarrassed.

#1. I’m embarrassed because it is so easy.
#2. I’m embarrassed because I canNOT take good photos in my kitchen.

The end.

I thought I would divert the attention from the bad lighting and throw in my pretty tulips.

Which you can’t really even enjoy because they are really not their actual color.

You’re welcome.


Dollar Tree cardboard stencil
Left over Latex Paint sample
$5.99 pack of 5 dishcloths from Ross’s.

(Costco tulips. That is only 1/2 of them and they were $8.99 a bunch!)

The dishcloths are pretty enough without stenciling but I thought I would add a little monogram to see how it looked.

Not bad for a Dollar Tree stencil and latex paint, is it?

I washed them after the paint dried……the paint stayed on perfectly.

This would make a cute gift.

The monogram adds a pretty “pop” of color.

And so, so, easy. It probably took me five minutes total.

So easy I’m a little embarrassed.

But I do like my dishtowels.

What do you think?


Ready to make your own?

The Dollar Tree had cute “Holiday” stencils in the same packet as the alphabet. Ross’s had pretty green and white towels like my blue and white ones. What if you use the Dollar Tree shamrock stencil and green paint with the green and white towels? Or the Christmas stencils with the red and white towels?

Get the picture?

A ton of possibilities.

Ready to make your own?

Let me know what you think!

    Love them! And…your pictures were not horrible, at all. Shewwy…now I need to add something else to my “to do” list!

    Love the idea, and thanks for sharing the wash/latex idea. I’ve never tried that!

    Very cute – the stencil letters are very stylin’. I also like the towels…I don’t think we have Ross’ around here in MN – the towels get expensive but yours are a great price.

    i loved the idea and that you didn’t think it was too simple to share. not all of us have time and energy for the really big projects…

    Love, love, love. And EASY is what I love the most! Don’t know if you have one near you, but Ikea has great dish towels for cheap. I get some every time I go whether I need them or not. NOW I know what I’m going to do with some! Thanks!

    Cute, cute, cute…I use to stencil, well decades ago and when we took a stenciling class one husband said to his wife, “okay you can stencil anything in the house except my underwear!”…it is fun to see it back in style and you have updated it well

    I love them! I even have red latex paint leftover from a sample, too. Have to write down to do this, even though I’ll have the post, or I’ll forget…. Janet
