Completely Pinteresting: Decorating cloth napkins

It’s one thing to pin away at a collection of boards on Pinterest, but as a way to make myself get active about what I “say” I’m going to make I thought I’d start a weekly feature on the blog.  “Completely Pinteresting” will chronicle all kitchen-based projects I’ve set out to tackle.  First up, cloth napkins.

I had such a great time embellishing some cloth napkins this weekend!  I planned on sewing up the napkins myself, but I snagged some plain napkins that were on sale.  I’ve been pinning away at some design ideas, as I already talked about here.  I got some Martha Stewart all purpose paint and got to work.

I made stencils using adhesive stencil sheets where you draw the design and then cut it out with an X-acto knife.  It then sticks to your surface, and you can get several uses out of them.  Not exactly great for storage/long term use, but it made doing repeated designs much easier. Yes!  I used a sponge to apply the paint.

1. Cut a stencil using the art that accompanies the book Printing By Hand (Lena Corwin)

2. Cut triangles based on the art on the front of Anthology Magazine

3. Rectangles created a gingham-ish pattern

And, I also used stencils that have been sitting on the shelf for entirely too long!

1. Stencil Decor 101 (Ed Roth)

2. Martha Stewart ferns

 
Major tip: Go light with the paint – this way it won’t go through the fabric and give you a stiff, uncomfortable napkin.  Yes!  Happy stenciling!

    These are fantastic. I would like to hear how they wash up over time. Regardless, enjoy!

  2. DianaY says:

    Those napkins are stinkin’ cute! I like the stencil designs you came up with.
