Planning a dinner party? Try your hand at this simple DIY napkins project, to add a touch of pizzazz to your table in six ways. This project comes to Khoollect from the authors behind Decorate for a Party. Here’s how you do it:

  1. We used sticky-backed foam sheets from the craft store for our stamps. Simply cut out your desired shape, then peel back the covering and stick it to another piece of foam that is slightly larger than your stamp shape. We started with a triangle in a random pattern.
  1. This is a quick design to execute. Use a small square cut from the foam sheet and repeat.
  1. A soft matte fabric paint is used to create these designs as the paint washes nicely and has a softer feel. Be careful not to use the harder dimensional fabric paints. A star is cut from the foam and repeated. We used a square edged paintbrush to touch up in a few places.
  1. Create this fun linear design by placing four foam strips together on one stamp.
  1. For this design we’ve used a round sponge stamp from the craft store.
  1. We created two stamps and each had two different triangle foam shapes. Don’t be afraid to touch up your design with a small square-edged paintbrush to sharpen some of the edges of the design if necessary.
