You know, when guests come over and you bring out your table napkins and they appreciate them and ask you “where did you get these from”? Well, this time you can tell them it’s your creativity.
This one is simple and a great addition to your dining area.
Soak white linen napkins in water or run them under the tap. Squeeze the excess water and lay it flat on the table. Now paint with colours. You can either paint it your way or use objects dipped in paint to create prints. Make sure the paint is kept wet but not too thin.
Once finished, hang them to dry overnight. Iron the fabric to set the paint and place them on your dining table to awe your guests.
Candles are good but how about taking dinner time to a new height of elegance. This is a great way to give your table a classy feel.
What you need is, a couple of wine glasses, a decorative paper and battery operated mini lamps.
Cut out the decorative paper such that it folds to make the shade of a lamp. Glue it carefully without creasing the paper. Now place the battery operated mini lamp in the wine glass. Make sure to switch it on before you place it inside.
Cover the wine glass with the paper share and it’s done. Your gorgeous table lamp is ready. Enjoy an amazing dinner and bask in the light these lamps give out.
