As I’ve mentioned several times already, fall is one of my absolute favorite times of the year! Along with the cool air, all things pumpkin and cool, crisp days, also comes Thanksgiving! With the holidays quickly approaching, I thought I would share these simple stenciled napkins.
Thanksgiving is always a holiday filled with festive colors, pumpkins, Indian corn and more. Sometimes it’s fun to think outside the box and this year I thought I would make my own napkins with a tribal stencil using ScotchBlue™ Painter’s Tape.
Let’s take a look at how I made these simple tribal stenciled napkins.
ScotchBlue™ Painter’s Tape for Delicate Surface with Advanced Edge-Lock™ Paint Line Protector
Multi Surface Paint*
*I used Martha Stewarts Crafts™ Multi Surface Metallic Paint in Gold.
Cut ScotchBlue™ Painter’s Tape into long strips, that cut that in half horizontally.
Create your stencil using painter’s tape strips. I used strips that measured 2 to 2-1/2″ strips to form my small triangle.
Decide on the pattern you’d like to make using your stencil. One row or two, spacing, etc. I tend to wing my designs; however, feel free to measure and mark using a disappearing ink marking pen.
Once you know what you’re going to do – it’s time to start stenciling! Dab your brush or sponge into the paint and dab on paper plate or paper towel to thin out the paint for dabbing.
Continue placing your stencil and applying the paint until you’re patterns is complete. I chose to rows, offsetting the triangles a bit on the second row.
We’re officially done! I absolutely love the subtle tribal feel that these triangles created. These simple stenciled napkins are the perfect DIY with an outcome that is handmade and uniquely YOU!
You’re now ready to set the table and wow your guests with one-of-a-kind napkins! Add a few small pinecones or gourds to each place setting for an additional festive touch!
