DIY-wedding-napkinsMany brides struggle with how to “dress up” their guest tables, especially if specialty linens aren’t in their budget. Creating fun & colorful napkins can be a great way to add a splash of color to your table, and add a very custom look! Just make a trip to your local craft store or fabric store, pick out the perfect fabrics for your color palette, and get to cutting. You can finish your napkins in 1 of 2 ways—-cut a 3/4 inch “notch” in the corner of each square and hem them, or use pinking shears to “finish” the edges. Personally, I think if you have more than 50 guests, I would opt to use pinking shears, just to save my sanity!

We had a lovely September bride who created her own napkins in different graphic prints of purple and green and they were such an amazing accent to her tables! And your DIY cloth projects don’t have to stop at napkins—check out the DIY linen (top right) a bride created for her cake table! If you can hem an edge, you have endless possibilities to make your own napkins, runners, table clothes or overlays!
