Painting Napkins

I was given some plain medium colored brown napkins, that I really didn’t like.  They’ve been sitting in my napkin drawer for about a year now.  Brown is not one of my favorite colors, but they do go well with Fall.  What to do with them?  I made my own stencil, added some paint & turned them into some Fall napkins.  Once you know how to make a stencil, you can decorate anything.  This would be a good way to change up plain pillows, place-mats, towels or even a plain sweatshirt.

Here’s how I did it and you can too!

Fall Decor Haul

Oh, I’ve been shopping again.   This time it was for some new Fall Decorating items.  I went to several stores in the last few weeks, and this is what I found.  First stop was Walmart.  Oh they’ve gotten in so many pretty things for Fall.  They had Fall garlands, bags of pumpkins & squash, mini hay bales & this adorable little scarecrow.  I’ve already got a centerpiece in mind for these.

Fall Lantern Tutorial

When I put together my Fall Tablescape-3 Ways, the first tablescape had a Fall Lantern as the centerpiece.  It is easy to make & can be easily removed after the season has changed.  The same principal can be used for the upcoming Christmas season, simply by changing the ribbon and florals.

Here’s how I changed a plain lantern into a Fall lantern.
