7 - holiday napkins

Here's an easy (and environmentally friendly!) way to make your table festive - embellished cloth napkins.

  • Cloth napkins
  • Iron-on printer transfer sheets
  • Computer/printer
  • Fun font (there are lots of great free downloads, such as here, here, and here).
  • Iron
All you need to do is design a little phrase/word image with your font - I went with "merry christmas to all"; but you could do any holiday-related words (peace, love, joy, happy holidays, etc.). Then duplicate so that you have one for each napkin, and print. (I practiced printing on regular paper first to make sure I liked the size/color before using up my special iron on sheets.)

Follow the directions on your sheets for ironing on, and you're done!

I have all white dishes, so I love to put colored/seasonal serving dishes, placemats, and napkins with them. Here's my holiday table so far:
The napkins are from Target; the 4-packs were on sale for about $6. And the print/iron on sheets are from Michael's, also $6ish I think, but less with a 40% off coupon, of course. These could be a fun little gift, maybe for a hostess.


  1. Eeep! I'm so happy I found your site. I'm a craft fiend and love seeing other ideas. Can't wait to see what's next.


  2. nice! that would make a nice stocking stuffer.

  3. Thanks, Meri! Glad you enjoyed.

    And marmee: was that a hint?!
