If you cannot get enough of the simplistic style of country decorating, you are not alone. After all, what is not to love about the comforting and relaxed style that brings back memories of summer afternoons on a country porch sipping tea and enjoying fresh baked cookies? Flour sack towels are right at home with country decorating themes and can be used in endless ways to add just the right amount of charm to your country home, at a minimal cost.
Create a wall hanging
Whether your passion is painting, stenciling, cross-stitching, or embroidery, you can create art on flour sack towels to use as inexpensive wall hangings. Look at a flour sack towel as a blank canvas full of possibilities and unleash your creativity. Stitch or paint a simple object, such as a piece of fruit or a rustic tin on a flour sack towel, or stencil one of your favorite slogans on a flour sack towel to create a fun and inspiring wall hanging.
Once you complete your art, stretch your flour sack towel over an art canvas and secure it in the back with staples to create your wall hanging. You can also hang your towel over a small rod or a coat hanger to display on your wall.
Design your own table runner
Stitch several flour sack towels together to make a country table runner in any size you wish. Stencil around the edges or decorate each end with a simple embroidery or cross stitch design to create a one-of-a-kind runner to display on your kitchen table or a living room coffee table. You can also use rubber stamps and fabric paint to create fun designs on your table runner if sewing is not your thing.
Line a basket
Baskets and country style go together, and adding a flour sack towel to a basket will only enhance the country charm. Leave the flour sack towel plain, to use as a simple liner for a breadbasket on the dining room table. Or, stitch red or blue gingham checked ribbon around the edges of a flour sack towel to add a pleasing pop of color to a breadbasket.
With a stack of flour sack towels on hand, you will never run out of ideas for inexpensive ways to decorate your home in a country style. From the kitchen to the bedroom, you are sure to find a use for flour sack towels, to add a perfect touch of country charm to your living space.
Growing up, I absolutely adored my sweet parents. Whenever they could, they spent quality time with me. My mom and I often sat at the dining room table while we colored pictures in coloring books. We also put scenic puzzles together. Are you the parent of little kids? Consider making fun memories with your little ones by completing craft projects together and getting them interested in new hobbies. Some fun crafts to do include knitting mittens, making beaded bracelets, creating a family photo album, and decorating holiday cookies. On this blog, I hope you will discover the advantages of engaging in exciting crafts with your children.
