Diy Drop cloth Spring polka dot napkins


How are you all doing today?

I hope Spring is coming your way.  It is finally nice, sunny, and Spring like temps.

Whoot! Totally inspires me to be creative.

I figured since I had a drop cloth out the other day, {I was actually making another drop cloth pillow}, coming soon…

 I would whip out 

some diy drop cloth spring polka dot napkins.

This stencil is so cute and Amy from Mod podge rocks asked me if I would give it a try.

She actually designed these herself.  They can be used with mod podge, or paint.

Sure, I love stenciling, and polka dots are perfect this time of year.

That’s the stencil I chose, but as you can see there is a variety.

So let’s give them a try!

  Best part is they are peel and stick, so very user friendly.

The little dabber makes it real simple.

Dip, dop and dap!

Not really, I just made that little lingo up.  But really when you think about it, that is all you do.  Lightly dip your paint dabber in

I put my craft paint on a paper plate, just a about a quarter size

dop the dapper

and just start lightly pouncing on the stencil.

Un peel and you have a cute polka dot pattern.


Cut drop cloths to size, I used a linen napkin as my template.

Make two folds to meet in the middle

Put stencil across, as I mention it is a peel and stick.

Stencil as directed.

I didn’t stop there.  I thought what else can I add to the cuteness.

 I got out my rit dye,

and dabbed this fun sunshine orange color on the drop cloth.

I of course had plastic under the drop cloth in order not to bleed through the other side.

Wait just a minute…

these need some stenciling on them too.

I used my new chalk pen I found at Walmart next to the crayon section.

It actually looks almost like it was bleached on the rit dye.

 So cute!

I used a fresh Spring color of burlap to tie around them.

Now I have to set a Spring table to actually use them.

    These are adorable! Love the colors too ~

    I’ve been helping my daughter and s-i-l pack and move the last couple of weeks. I cannot even begin to tell you how exhausted I am! This “older” body doesn’t do as well as my mind thinks it can. :) We’re on the downhill side now.

    These are so cute! Be sure to zig zag the edges though so they make it through the wash! I work with drop cloth a lot and the raw edges tend to fray badly. Love them!
