How to make your own napkin to decoupage

If you follow me for some hot minute you know I love to craft with napkins ….love to look for pretty ones that I can craft with. As you know there are lots of pretties out there to have fun with. Todays project was initiated by one of my friends that ask me to help out with some gift wrapping. She wanted to make something homemade for her sister that loves to shop at Traders Joe market. My first thought was lets decoupage some napkins. Problem was Traders Joe didn’t have any that will have their logo on. I was actually surprised You know me I was on the mission. I wanted to create something looking good with things I had at home since clock was ticking. Why don’t we make our own napkin so we can create some pieces that can decorate her house later. Are you ready for some napkin printing ideas?

If you follow me for some time you do know I love napkins a love to create with them. Have lots to share with you in my store

Supplies needed for this gift wrapping idea project


How to set up for napkin printing

Just because I love to decoupage I decided to use one of my napkin ply’s for this project. It is another good idea to save those to use for other projects. Make sure to scroll all to the bottom of this post to see some of others ways I use my napkin ply’s

To start this project you need to have an image. You can find lots of clip art on internet for free or you can create your own.

  • There are so many ways to go around this project. My favorite way is to use my regular printer paper. In order to have your napkin printing successful you need to tape your ply to a printer paper and print … easy right ? It works like a charm every time. My friend Carol printed her design on the paper towel but of course separated to 1 ply. Trust me napkin printing for decoupage is soooo easy

Depending on the image you are working with .. you can cut out all around it or just place as a whole piece. As you remember i like to add Traders Joe logo on containers that my friend is hoping that will stay on display in the kitchen. My goal was to apply my freshly printed napkin on a pice of a burlap.

I chose to use white burlap since background to my print was light. As you can see my logo is cut and ready for decoupage. Don’t you love this decoupage idea?

  • apply thin coat of Mod- Podge to your burlap and apply your freshly printed napkin. Don’t worry about smoothing Just use a brush to push your napkin into a grain of burlap super gently so those two become one.

I like to give some time for my napkin to dry over burlap so let’s work on our containers. Just because i have random coffee container I decided to cover it with drop cloth. Mod Podge is super helpful in this project. Thin coat of it will secure my material to a can. My goal was to cut all flash and secure with metal lid that came with this can.
