This year we’re trying something different. Instead of big gift ideas, we’re adding small touches to make festive family get-togethers a little more special. DIY sun print napkins make a Christmas breakfast look cheerful, and the guests can take them home with them!
HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED FOR COLOURFUL SUN PRINT NAPKINS
Time: 40-90 minutes including drying time
- White Napkins (one for each guest)
- Flowers of your choice
- Sun Colour Paint (We used red)
- Paintbrush/small roller
Soak clean napkins in water then spread them out on a table in the sun. Protect the table with plastic sheets because the paint can stain the surface too.
Pour a little sun print paint into a roller pan or container, dip in your paintbrush and paint the napkins. Work speedily, because the paint dries quickly.
The napkins are ready to use once their dry, but it’s best to make sure their colourfast. Put the napkins through one wash and dry cycle then they will be good to go!
That’s it! Now you can place them on your festive table for a colourful Christmas breakfast, with a delicious brunch. Alternatively, make a few napkins per family unit, wrap in gift paper and put it underneath the tree, ready for unveiling later. Whichever you choose, remember that the festive season is about spending time with loved ones. So, don’t stress and have a good time!
Have a happy Festive Day!
