Yep, I’m at it again with the iron on transfers! This time, I’m making Iron On Chicken Tea Towels.
Iron On Chicken Tea Towels
There is no easier way to add quick decor to a room, whether it’s creating seasonal decor, or newly designed dish towels. I’ve made pillows, table runners and lots and lots of dish towels. Iron On transfers make it so easy to create new home decor items without breaking the bank.
I’m looking for simple ways to spring clean, bring in the spring and summer decor and to declutter! The best motivator for me is to have something fresh to display and this spring it’s my new Iron On Chicken Tea Towels. Download your free chicken printable and follow my tutorial below to make your own.
As I mentioned earlier, if I have something new to spruce up my space, or I’m updating decor to reflect the season, that’s always a great motivator. That’s why I created these simple and quick Iron On Chicken Tea Towels.
It’s just enough excitement, the small kick in the pants I needed to get going and get a few things organized.
Another quick DIY craft to get me motivated to rearrange my living room after receiving my new sofa, was this DIY Cloche tutorial I did a few weeks ago. They make me smile every time I walk in the room.
How to Make Iron On Transfer Tea Towels
- Download your free chicken design.
- I used the Jolee’s brand for light fabrics. I found mine at Michaels. Here’s a direct affiliate link.
- Print as directed. The striped side is NOT the side you print on. I’ve learned the hard way.
- Cut out each chicken.
- Place face down on your tea towel. I used the kitchen towels from IKEA. I’ve also used the plain kitchen towels from Walmart.
- Iron as directed and let it cool.
- Slowly peel the paper away and you’ll see your design magically appear.
Wash as normal and they really soften up.
These also make great gifts! I may make up a set for my Mother in law for Mother’s Day.
Here’s a quick little video that shows how I did it.
I created this post for a dear friends book launch.
I’ve been reading my friends new book to help her launch it’s release. MAKE ROOM for what you LOVE, by Melissa Michaels from The Inspired Room. Melissa and I have been blogging for about the same amount of time and I just love her sensible approach. I’m also so proud of what she’s created, it’s so helpful to so many! She’s a home blogger that encourages you to love your space and her latest book is teaching you to declutter, in the most sensible way! She’s got 2 other great books and a new adult coloring book for the home designer in you!
And friends…. I can be the queen of clutter! But then I suddenly turn into Miss Cranky pants because everything feels out of control! It’s a never ending struggle and reading Melissa’s book is planting many seeds for thought in how to change this vicious cycle. There are several of us bloggers supporting Melissa and helping get the word out about her launch. If you love home blogs, then this list is a must!

This quote is probably the one that speaks volumes to me. I need to have it tattooed to my forehead. It reminds me of the One Touch Rule I learned years ago, which I fail at miserably.
I am also loving her Five Ways to Get Better Organized with a Little Therapeutic Frenzy. Because you can do SO much in as little as 5 minutes if you just do it, right?
