Last month I moved into my new house (yay!) and am having fun decorating and making this house my home. Last year I discovered Lindsay Letters and just knew I had to have some of her beautiful calligraphy work throughout my new home. Have you seen Lindsay Letters? You guys… so awesome! I’m obsessed. So imagine my delight when I realized that I already owned a Lindsay Letters piece. It’s a tea towel from Mary & Martha (another obsession of mine!) that says “They broke bread in their homes with glad and sincere hearts.” LOVE! This big beautiful tea towel is just too amazing to hide in a drawer or to be draped over the oven handle. So I decided it needed to be its own piece of art to hang in my kitchen.
This is so easy I’m almost embarrassed. All you need is an awesome tea towel, a blank canvas, and thumbtacks.
I already owned the towel, so I just jumped over to Pat Catans and bought me some thumbtacks and a canvas to fit my towel. Five minutes and $9 was all it took!
I laid out the towel face down and placed the canvas over it:
Thumbtacks easily hold the towel to the canvas:
And voila! Easy and beautiful tea towel art.

Have a great day!
