Valentine DIY Dish Towels
Here is a peek at some of the towels I made. I made them from flour sacks and painted them with a roller.
These dish towels are very easy to make. I used some vintage French paint rollers to make some of them.
And yet, this paint roller from Amazon turned out to be my favorite. I ended up using it in the towels shown in this post. The paint roller comes in additional designs. Be sure to check them out.

What You Need to Make This Valentine DIY Craft
I think I own more acrylic than a craft store. This is great because I NEVER have to buy it! I grabbed some pink paints from my craft storage room.
Next, I taped down some parchment paper and topped it with pink paint. Make sure the paint is flat and not glumpy (I don’t think that is a word but you know what I mean) so the roller will only get paint on the raised design. You can use a paintbrush to spread out the paint if you don’t have a brayer/roller.
Roll the paint roller in the paint and roll it onto the flour sack. Paint in the same direction and press harder as you go. This helps to adhere the paint on the flour sack.
Let the towels dry and then iron with a hot iron to secure the acrylic paint. Once it is ironed, the paint should be permanent.
Here are some examples of the paint rollers and paint.
Look at my finished towels! I love the design of the new roller, as seen in the first two photos below.
Aren’t these towels just amazing?
Dish Soap Valentine DIY
My pink dish soap is another Valentine DIY you can add to your kitchen. It is so easy and looks so cute in any kitchen. (Of course, if you don’t want pink you can use a different color of dish soap.)
Here is my simple dish soap hack. All you need is a glass bottle. I used this swing top bottle and some dish soap. I just happened to find some pink Dawn Gentle Clean dish soap!
Look how much better this looks! I love the glass bottle as a replacement. You can use any type of decorative glass bottle or small vase for this Valentine DIY.
Frequently Asked Questions
You can use acrylic paint on towels. Over time, the design may lighten. You can iron the painted towels once the paint is dry to secure the paint even more.
Fabric paint is the most popular but I often use acrylic paint. I always iron the towels once they are dry, to help secure the paint to the fabric.
I always iron my flour sack towels before I paint them. Use a light water spray and iron them on the cotton setting.
