I absolutely ADORE this simple DIY for cloth napkins. It jazzes up any tablescape and you can tailor it to your color scheme!
They’re simple to make, no sewing machine required. You can choose your own napkins and trim so it will match your color scheme, and most fabric stores have tons of trim options from fringe and tassel to pom-pom!
I hope this video gives you a glimpse into just how easy it is to make these napkins. It’s truly as simple as it looks. Fabric glue is magical, friends.
While I did choose a bold pink for mine, you can always go with a basic white if you’re just trying out some designs. White goes with everything.
Same on same does look great as well so be on the lookout for fun colored napkins when you’re out and about.
Where to find cloth napkins:
My pink linen napkins came from Sur la Table, but I’m not seeing them listed on their website.
- Amazon has a ton of great cloth napkin options here in tons of patterns and colors.
- Pottery Barn
Can you wash DIY trim cloth napkins?
Yes! Be sure to read the instructions on your specific fabric glue, but I have had no trouble when washing mine after 24 hours on delicate.
That’s so important with cloth napkins because you want your guests to actually feel comfortable using them. You can wash them and the trim will not budge.
The fabric glue I used is called Fabric Fusion. You can usually find it at any craft or sewing store, or grab it here on Amazon. It’s easy to use!
