For this week’s challenge, we’re asking designers to look to the stars and create a tea towel design (perfect for holiday gifting) inspired by the zodiac.


Overview

We just read your October horoscope, and an amazing design is in your future! Get ideas by researching your own astrological moon or sun sign, or combine all 12 to represent the entire zodiac.

Like previous years, all tea towel entries will automatically be previewed on a Spoonflower Tea Towel during voting. Learn more about the ins and outs of formatting your entry to ensure a picture-perfect preview!
