Personalized Turkish Towels

Personalized Turkish Towels

Posted by DecoArt on Jul 18th 2019

Beach towels with personalization help the kids know exactly whose towel belongs to who. And it’s super simple and fast using DecoArt SoSoft fabric paint.

Adding a name to customize the towel makes a great gift idea! How about a monogram or a special date? And SoSoft fabric paint is available in 70 beautiful colors and finishes to coordinate with your fabric project or theme.

To personalize these Turkish towels I used bold bright colors in contrast to the stripes in the towels. This would be a really fun teen craft for a party to have each attendee make their own personalized towel.

Items Needed:

  • DecoArt SoSoft Fabric Paints
  • Turkish Cotton Towels
  • Paintbrush
  • Stencil
  • Cardboard Or Scrap Wood

Step 1: Find the center of the towel and determine where you want the personalization.  Slide a piece of cardboard or scrap wood under the portion where you will apply the paint.
