Thanksgiving Stenciled Napkins

Materials Needed:

  • iron and ironing board
  • white cotton or linen napkins
  • acrylic craft paint in desired color(s)
  • fabric medium
  • stencil bottle with foam brush top
  • stencil
  • masking tape (optional)

Wash and Press Napkins

Follow cleaning instructions on napkins. Wash, dry and iron smooth.

Position Stencil

Place stencil in desired location on napkin and hold firmly or tape in place. Tip: Choose a stencil that is sized appropriately for the napkin so the design will be visible when the napkin is folded.

Paint Stencil

Mix acrylic craft paint and fabric medium in bottle with foam brush top following manufacturer's instructions for mix ratio. Screw on top. Press down on foam brush gently until paint comes out. Pounce brush gently over stencil to fully fill in design. Do not use too much paint or it will bleed under stencil.
