Materials Needed

  • black cotton fabric
  • cloth napkins
  • art canvas
  • paper-backed fusible webbing
  • iron
  • photo (profile view)
  • printer and standard printing paper
  • tape
  • scissors
  • staple gun

Step 1

Cut a piece of black cotton fabric the same size as your canvas. Iron a piece of paper-backed fusible webbing, like Wonder-Under ($3 per yard, joann.com), on it—it will turn the fabric into an iron-on appliqué. Set it aside.

Step 2

Take a profile photo, size it on your computer to fit nicely on the canvas, and print it onto paper.

Step 3

Tape the printout to the fabric and cut out the image to create a silhouette.

Step 4

Remove the backing from the fusible webbing and iron the silhouette onto the center of a napkin, following the package instructions.

Step 5

Wrap the napkin around the canvas; secure it to the back with a staple gun.
