DIY Stamped Thanksgiving Napkins

About a month ago I was lucky enough to guest post over on my friend Amy’s site, The Idea Room, where I shared a fun way to personalize your party with DIY Halloween stamped napkins.

I had so much fun with them, I decided to make some DIY stamped napkins for Thanksgiving as well.

One of the things that I like about this project is just how easy it is…It’s something you could do on your own, or with your kids.

Bam! You’re done.

These napkins are the perfect way to personalize your casual Thanksgiving table.

You could easily make them match any decor…

I noticed you do have to be a bit more careful with lettered stamps…You have to be careful not to over ink the stamp or press to hard, which causes seeping.

We used these napkins to serve some super-yummy cinnamon nutmeg banana bread, but I’d love to find a “fun” stamp to use on napkins on the kids table…Wouldn’t that be perfect?!

  1. Very cool idea. I think I’m going to try that.
