DIY Hand Stamped Polka Dot Napkins

DIY Hand Stamped Polka Dot Napkins
I love cloth napkins. They add a special touch family dinners, brunches with friends, or even eating pizza in front of the tv. A few days ago me and Jessica were in a major crafting mood and made these napkins, plus a few other DIYs that we will be sharing later, during a marathon of The Walking Dead (a completely typical show to watch while producing pretty napkins with purple polka dots). These napkins were incredibly easy to make and I thought it was kind of fun creating the pattern. It was a great while to be productive while also vegging out in front of the television.

supplies for hand stamped polka dot napkins
Supplies:
Cloth Napkins (like these)
Acrylic Paint (that can be used on cloth)
Q-Tips
Kraft Paper (not pictured)

Instructions:
1. Pre-wash and iron (which I did kind of poorly) the napkins.
2. Spread kraft paper over your work area.
3. Dip a q-tip into the paint and then press onto the napkin. Repeat until you cover the entire napkin. Ours are not perfectly spaced or lined up and I think that makes them even better.
4. Allow to dry.

  5. I agree! Pretty cloth napkins always make even a simple family meal a little bit more special. Polka dots are a favourite print of mine - fun yet at the same time stylish and you can't go wrong with classic blue and white.

  10. Cloth napkins definitely dress up a table much more than paper ones. This is such a fun DIY and your napkins came out so pretty!

  15. They look awesome. I love that the dots aren't perfectly round or placed. It gives it a bit of extra charm. And isn't it great to do a diy whilst watching tv? I always try to do something creative when I'm in front of the tv, it makes me feel less guilty when I watch a favourite show for hours :-)
