handmade screen-printed napkins

handmade screen-printed napkins

Oh my – aren't my new screen-printed napkins beautiful? Not to boast (much), but I'm loving the stark simplicity. And I bet you couldn't tell that the design was created from duct tape strips. That's some fancy technology and skill.

You don’t need complicated technology or materials to make something beautiful and inspired

The napkins are part of my creative challenge to make as much as I can for our beach bungalow in Maine. The idea: a handmade home filled with creative inspiration, passion projects and homespun goodness.

And since we had no napkins I thought it would be a good idea to make some.

Immediately. Because it's never good to go without napkins if there's a messy three-year-old boy in the house.

I already had some vintage white linens that I had picked up at a flea market and put aside for the "perfect" project (I know I'm not the only creative soul with a-thousand-and-fifty-two projects on the shelf – my next creative challenge: finishing every project before starting a new one), and I also had some duct tape lying around (who doesn't?) and thought to myself: perfect napkin project.

Down to a-thousand-and-fifty-one projects.
