I love to make stencils with my glue gun. It’s easy, inexpensive, and looks great. Check out these Christmas Kitchen towels that I made for Christmas.
I love my kitchen when it is decorated for the holidays. The white cabinets and green walls (which have been this way for twenty years!) look so great with red and green Christmas decor. Today I am sharing some Christmas kitchen towels that I made with … are you ready … a glue gun!
Today is Day Seven of Ten Days of Christmas Crafts and I can’t wait to share how I made a stencil with a glue gun!

A few months ago I made a glue gun stencil and made some napkins. You can see them in my blog post here.

I loved the process so much I wanted to make a glue gun stencil for Christmas kitchen towels.
To start, I needed a design. I already made the pillow with the Christmas tree design, so I thought it would be fun to make something with a design of Christmas gifts!
I found and edited this design and if you want to use it, you can download it here Christmas Gifts.
How to Make a Glue Gun Stencil
It isn’t hard to make a glue gun stencil. All you need is a design, parchment paper, and a glue gun with glue sticks.
Here is the pattern I used placed underneath some parchment paper.
You should watch my Facebook Live to see how I made the glue gun stencil.
It’s a bit hard to see as it is clear. But here is my stencil!
Here is a closer view.
You will want to apply the paint to the flat side of the stencil.
In this photo, you can see the stencil on top (covered with red paint) and the cloth with the stencil pattern.
I love that the stenciled dish towel is not perfect.
You can use regular acrylic paint (and iron it to set the paint into the fabric) or you can use fabric paint.
It is up to you.
