I have another super easy craft for you today! Triforce (from Zelda) Tea Towels!
You could take this idea and use it to make all sorts of designs, the possibilities are really pretty endless, but I’m doing a triforce for this tutorial because it’s super easy and literally anyone can do this. And… Zelda!
- Tea Towel (also known as flour sack towel… just basically a thin, smooth towel without all the bumps from terry cloth) Can be bought on amazon here: Aunt Martha’s White Flour Sack Dish Towels, Size 28-Inch by 28-Inch, 2-Pack
- Fabric marker(s) in desired color(s). Can be bought on amazon here: Colore Premium Fabric Markers – 20 Rich Pigment Fine Permanent Graffiti Coloring Pens – Child Safe & Non Toxic – For Art Writing on Bags, Shoes, T-shirts & Other Fabric Paint Materials
- A piece of cardboard to cut up and use as your outline
- Optional: Some kind of ruler to help keep your lines straight
Step 1: On your piece of cardboard draw a triangle of whatever size you want (make sure you keep in mind there will be three of these to fit on your towel!) My triangle is about 2 inches
Step 2: Carefully cut out your triangle
Step 3: Lay your cardboard on top of the towel where you want to have the bottom right section of the triforce. I recommend having something underneath the towel in case your marker bleeds thru like mine did!
Step 4: Take your FABRIC marker of desired color and while holding the cardboard in place (or you can tape it if you need) make a bunch of dots inside the triangle. Make sure it is filled in really well.
Step 5: Once you have finished that triangle, let it sit for a minute or two until it is dry and then place your cardboard next to it for the bottom left triangle of the triforce. Make sure the bottom corners of the triangles line up and that it is straight! Repeat step 4 with this triangle and then do all of it again for the top triangle (making sure the tops of the two triangles line up with the bottom corners of your new triangle)
And that’s it! Wait for it to dry really well before using or washing the towel. Then hang it up and show off your creation!
