I love funny towels, but could never find the right one–until I made my own funny homemade kitchen towels. They’re so funny, so full of snark, I just can’t help but smile when I see them.
If you love these DIY funny kitchen towels craft for Cricut, you can rest assured that there are a lot of fun ideas to go with them. Just check out these 20 Pottery Barn Inspired looks that really are eye-catching.
So, when you’re done making kitchen towels with your Cricut, you can just whip-up a whole house of awesome.
Plus, let’s be honest, these hand towels make an awesome gift idea for a friend or neighbor you know loves the snark as much as you. If you have a Cricut Maker or any cutting machine, you just need a few minutes, some vinyl and a smile. It’s that fast.
And that’s honestly one of the things I love best about working with Cricut projects: they’re so fast and clean. I would have spent HOURS painting by hand on these towels and still not have been happy with them. But spend a few minutes with some iron-on vinyl and an EasyPress? I’m happy and the project looks awesome enough to give as a gift.
That is amazing.
Tips to Make Kitchen Towels with Your Cricut
- Always mirror the image. The way that you work with iron on vinyl, you need to put it shiny side down on the cutting mat, so it has to be cut mirrored. Don’t forget–it’s a waste of vinyl if you do.
- As with any iron on project with Cricut Design Space, I recommend for this tea towel set that you attach the design. I know that this doesn’t save you as much vinyl, but it’s going to save you SO MUCH time and stress.
- Use a tool to remove the small cutouts. Seriously–especially with the all the bits and parts, it’s easier to pick it up off the backing with a tool. I know you feel like your fingernail is enough, but it’s not.
