  • White or tan teatowel – we went with tan as I liked the look of the brown paints on it.
  • Brown and burnt orange fabric paint – This here is a great NonToxic Fabric paint
  • Paper plate or paint tray
  • 1 Foam paint brush – You can grab a 25 pack for around here
  • Thin tip paint brush


  • Take your paper plate or paint tray and squirt the darker brown paint on it.
  • Fold you towel how you want it to be when you hang it on the stove bar, and then turn it upside down and place it where you are going to have your kid crafting. You want the hand prints to be going in the opposite direction of how you want it to hang because it is much easier then turning a kids hand in different directions.
  • Next paint your child's hand with the light brown paint. You can use the tray and have them dip their hands in the paint, or you can use the foam paint brush to paint their hand.
  • Place child's hand on the towel, repeat for however many handprint acorns you want on the towel. Depending on your kids hand size will depend on how many acorns you can fit on the towel.
  • Let the paint dry a little bit and then using your thin paint brush, make the top part of the acorn.
  • If you want to darken the paint up a bit you can, by going over the handprint with more paint. It is all personal preference on how you want them to look.
  • If you want to add the date to the bottom of the towel, use the thin black paint brush to put the date on the bottom.
  • Allow the paint to completely dry before use.
  • Follow the directions on your fabric paint when washing your towels.
