Janel from NellieBellie is here today to share a quick and easy craft idea inspired by the Block Party Napkins from Anthropologie. I love a good knock-off, and these napkins are so cute!
Hello Positively Splendid readers!! I’m Janel from NellieBellie and I’m back today with an easy way to diy these napkins from Anthropologie…
At a whopping $12.00 each I was determined to get the same look for a lot less. And gosh, isn’t that a diy waiting to happen!
Before we get too far let me show you my version…
I think they are cuter, personally. But, who am I to argue with Anthro?
So, want the scoop on this easy diy? I got you covered…
white napkins (mine are cheap-o’s from Wal-mart)
craft paint (I use all-purpose from Martha Stewart, love that stuff!)
black fabric marker
a paint brush (a cheap foam brush works well!)
First, tape off your triangles. Don’t worry about being perfect.
Second, paint the triangles.
Paint them all one color if you like, or multiple color like I did here.
Third, use your black fabric pen to add your little bows and swag in between the triangles.
Wait for the whole shabang to dry and you have napkins BETTER then the original!
Note: if you used proper paint these ARE washable.
I’m so glad I was able to come back and hang with you lovely readers!! Have a great rest of June!!
Be sure to stop on over to NellieBellie and visit me…won’t you!! I’ll leave the tea on for you!
