With Easter just around the corner, thoughts of creating a tablescape was this week's goal. I always love a challenge of creating something without buying anything new (including supplies); and so this project ended up not costing us anything extra since I used stuff we already had around, except purchasing fresh eggs. Digging through our craft supplies I found leftover iron-on transfer paper from another project and some white fabric to create napkins, for the eggs, a little modge podge, paint and a printer. The camellias, from our tree. Get the how-to and free printables for the napkins below. For the decoupage eggs, see our previous post or click here!
DIY Magnolia Napkins
These iron on transfers are a great way to create bespoke napkins for Easter or spring and can be made in less than an hour. Just print out the magnolia printables and iron on!
You Will Need:
2 Magnolia napkin printable green (prints onto an 8.5 x 11 size)
2 Magnolia napkin printable pink (prints onto an 8.5 x 11 size)
4 Iron-on Transfer Paper
4 napkins (preferably lighter colours)
Print out the magnolia printables (links above) onto iron-on transfer paper, we used 2 green and 2 pink. But feel free to use all green or all pink. Cut around each flower. Iron each transfer onto each of the napkins (per the instructions that come with the iron on transfer paper) Peel off the transfer paper to reveal the magnolias onto the napkin fabric.
