Napkins come in so many beautiful colors and patterns. Some of you may have seen the Peacock Chair I posted a few weeks ago. The peacock design on the chair is actually a napkin that I adhered to the chair with ModPodge...
I have been doing quite a lot of projects using napkins lately.
Today I am going to show you how I made a jewelry holder using a napkin for the decorative accent.
I'm sure you have seen these before, but just in case...here is the tutorial...
Open back frame- this one is 11" x 14"
Decorative Napkin- Once again I chose a peacock design.
X-acto knife or scissors
Most napkins have several layers. Pull the layers apart until you have a single layer.
Next, begin coating sections of the frame with ModPodge.
Adhere the napkin and give it a top coat of ModPodge.
Fold your corners on the back like you are wrapping a present...
When the frame is dry, staple in the window screen.
Trim the excess screen...
This project took about an hour and was very inexpensive.
The napkin I used had a pattern that had to match up. You could use a napkin, or even tissue paper, that has a more "all over" pattern and you could tear the pieces and overlap them.
This would also be a great way to decorate frames to put pictures in!
