DIY Monogrammed Cocktail Napkins

Create your own monogrammed cocktail napkins! I really like using linen cocktail napkins, which you can find here. They are great to have around for cocktail parties or to customize for special events. You can monogram your own with just a few supplies. I also created a monogrammed dish towel!

And yes, we should all match our nail polish to our cocktail napkins… ; )


Linen cocktail napkins, washable fabric paint (so you can throw them in the washing machine), paint brush, stencil
1. Either create your own stencil or buy one from the store
2. Tape the stencil to the cocktail napkin so it will stay in place as you paint
3. Using the fabric paint and paint brush… paint the inside of the stencil.
4. Let it sit for about 20 minutes and then remove the paper. Touch up the lines that might have leaked through. Let the paint dry completely before using.

    Love it! I bet freezer paper would make it a little more goof-proof. Love the blue!

    So cute! I second the freezer paper idea – it’d probably be a little more stable for painting!
