NAPKINS-materials

What you’ll need for this super easy DIY is:

  • Fabric (of your choice) – We used cotton chambray
  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Pencil
  • Paint Brush
  • Fabric Paint

Before you begin with these 3 steps, you’ll need to cut your fabric in squares.  A typical dinner napkin size is 18 in x 18 in.

final-steps

STEPS 1 THROUGH 3

1. Come up with a pattern- trace if necessary.

2.  Get your paint out and paint brushes ready.

3. Paint your heart away.  Make sure you have something under your fabric to catch the paint if it runs through your fabric.

Easy peasy, right??

We had so much fun with these!
