Actually, this is NOT stenciling a tea towel, it is stenciling on a White linen dinner Napkin!
That would have been too long of a title.
Some time ago, my Father gave me a stack of Restaurant Table linens. He use to be in the business and has had them for years. He thought I could do something with them.
Hence, I have.
Last year I stenciled these Diy hand painted napkins...
I still have them and use them on occasion.
Recently, I was inspired by Karianne’s recipe towel, she of course hand wrote hers! NOT me!
I knew what my next stenciling project would be.
How convenient, I have this kitchen stencil, that I have used over and over again.
Thank you Hobby Lobby for this! Best $2.99 I ever spent!
I ironed the linen napkin first…
placed my stencil and tape, and painted away lightly.
The key too stenciling IS NOT to use a lot of paint.
I think that is where people mess up. You must dab your brush or foam roller to get rid of all excess paint.
Looks as cute as cute can be!
Check out my new ROO!
My friend Kimberly Hites gifted it to me, as her decor is changing up a bit and she thought I would like this handsome young Man!
Thank you again Kim, I love him.
You also may see a peek here of a vintage linen towel my friend Shirley sent me.
I swear I have the NICEST friends around! Thank you Shirley!

I would be exhausted from all that entertaining.
