DIY Star Napkins



Who's ready for a little holiday?  July 4th is days away and I have a fairly simple table decor project: diy star napkins.

Use premade white cotton napkins or hem up cotton fabric then paint a simple red star at the center.  I'll show you how down below.



When paired with a little blue and white gingham you have a great 4th of July addition to your table.
(The giant table is also a diy project, see the details here.)


Fun, festive, fast and washable too.


How to make star napkins:

1. Use a rolled hem on an 18" square piece of white cotton (or use premade white napkins).
2. Print out a 3" star shape and pin to back side of napkin at center.
3. Using a lightbox paint inside the star shape with red acrylic craft paint.

And if you have a vinyl cutting machine you could easily make a stencil, stick onto the napkin and paint inside.

The acrylic paint dries in minutes and won't come off in the wash.

I think they are qtr size baking sheets and now I want some. Great idea to use them as trays/plates.
