How to stencil Spring napkins…..

Hey Everyone! It’s Jennifer Zuri from Town and Country Living with another easy home project for you! Today I have a tutorial on how to stencil spring napkins to give your table a pretty, custom look without a lot of work and headache. A wide variety of stencils are out there for the choosing, so there’s really no limit on what you can do for your next gathering of family or friends.

Stenciled Linen NapkinsI’m sharing 2 different stenciled napkin designs. You’ll have to let me know which is your favorite!

 

White Dinner NapkinsI started with plain white napkins from Hobby Lobby.

They come in packs of 4 for $7.99. Before you start stenciling, wash the napkins.

Tape the stencil in place close to the border of your napkin. The tape keeps the stencil from slipping.

 

Stenciled dinner napkinsBe sure to use fabric paint for this project since you’ll be washing the napkins over and over. You can use foam or bristle brushes. Use a light amount of paint and hold your stencil firmly in place. I usually use a stabbing motion to minimize any paint seeping underneath the stencil. Carefully peel the stencil away from the napkin and let the paint dry thoroughly before using the napkins.

I folded this one so both edges of the border would show, creating a pocket for the silverware.

Stenciling napkins lets me create the pattern I want in the color scheme I need.

I love to use yellow with blue and happened to have sunny mums on hand.

 

Spring table setting with stenciled napkinsI’m really craving the color yellow right now.

Maybe because I need warmth and sunshine this colder-than-normal March.

Note: Be sure to wait 72 hours after stenciling before washing your napkins.
