Our favorite color palette this spring? Turquoise blues paired with coral hues—there’s something so serene about the colors of the sky paired with soft coral tones seen in so many blooming spring flowers. Today we’re sharing a hand-stamped napkin DIY in this color palette that incorporates a pretty unusual and unexpected stamp—celery! We love the clean, modern lines a celery stalk creates when stamped onto a crisp white napkin. Keep reading for the instructions.
Click through for the simple step-by-step instructions…
• White cotton cloth napkins (I got mine at World Market)
• Fabric paint
• Butcher paper
• Celery stalks
1. Clean and cut celery into 2-inch pieces.
2. Prep paint. I mixed white fabric paint into my blue and orange paints to tone down the brightness a bit.
3. Dip the celery stalk into the paint, then press or “stamp” it into the cloth. Continue stamping until you’re happy with the linear pattern you’ve created.
4. Let paint dry overnight. Next, cover the stamped napkins with a scrap piece of fabric and press with a warm iron to set the color.
