Add character and flair to your home with DIY framed napkin art.
Can you believe it has already been a couple of weeks since our complete laundry room makeover? I have never been happier doing the laundry. Ok, my husband still does the laundry BUT I am so much happier starting it in there. The best part is how organizing this room has allowed us to keep it clean and tidy. It’s truly a miracle. Today, I wanted to share my DIY framed napkin art with you. There are so many possibilities with this idea and you could create it with different patterns, frames, art and photos.
I had these frames from a while back when Michaels had some of them on clearance. I bought 6 because the prices were too good to pass and I originally wanted to put them up in another room. The mirrored borders add a classic touch and look way more expensive than they actually cost.
Here’s how to create your own. I’ve added affiliate links in this post for your convenience.
Step 1: Take your frame and remove the mat.
This frame is no longer available but I sourced a similar one for you.
Step 2: Take a cloth napkin and start wrapping it around the mat.
I got a set of 4 of these from Anthropologie but sadly, they are no longer available. I’ve sourced a similar one for you below.
It would be best if you ironed the napkins to remove any creases. But if you’re a lazy DIY-er like me, you will naturally skip this step.
Step 3: Use safety pins to attach the napkin ends to each other.
This step prevents any damage to the napkins and holds it together. In the future, I may actually want to utilize these napkins for you know, napkins. Haha
Just ignore my creases. I promise they aren’t noticeable once they are in the frames.
Step 4: Add a photo, art work or printable and place in the center.
I just used scotch tape on the back and they stuck onto the fabric. You don’t need anything heavy duty because it will be pressed up against the frame.
I printed these free laundry room printables from Postcards from the Ridge and they were perfect for this space. Thank you, Angie for creating and sharing these!
Step 5: Carefully, place the new art inside the frame. Push down the frame tabs to keep everything in place.
The fabric will be thick enough so there’s no need to add the cardboard backing.
Easy Peasy right? People have been asking where I bought these custom frames. Isn’t that fun? I love how bold and funky they are. The classic frames gives it a nice custom finish.
Now, go make your own!
Pin this so you can have it for future reference!
Have a great week, friends! It’s time for me to go tackle the never ending laundry or at least start the machine.
