Homemade-DIY Halloween Cocktail/Appetizer Napkins
Easy Halloween cocktail napkins are fun to make for a special touch at your Halloween party. Any fabric can be used.
- Fabric (I suggest something natural, such as cotton to ensure stamp sets)
- Pinking sheers
- Halloween stamps
- Black stamping ink (or other colors if you prefer)
- Paper (to make a pattern) or paper cocktail napkin
- Pins (to affix pattern to fabric when cutting)
- Iron and ironing board
- Paper towels to clean stamps
Either use a paper cocktail napkin or cut out a square of paper 9 ½ by 9 ½ inches.
Lay pattern on fabric. Pin pattern to fabric or hold in place while cutting out fabric square.
Fold fabric in half with outside showing and iron the crease. Fold in half again and repeat to yield a square.
Gently tap desired stamp in the ink being careful not to get ink on the edges of the stamp that could leave additional unwanted marks on the fabric.
Place stamp on desired spot on napkin, press on the back of the stamp gently but evenly to ensure the ink transfer. Remove stamp and allow to dry before use.
FABRIC: I personally love more rustic fabric choices feeling they set the tone for the holiday. I used an orange gingham check and natural colored linen.
QUANTITY: As a guide, each napkin requires 9 ½ by 9 ½ inches of fabric. Using that as a guide select the amount of fabric needed for the number of napkins you wish to make.
Pinking shears both add a decorative edge as well as discourage fabric from raveling on the edges.
