Pretty Bird Nest Napkins




I love decorating with birds, nests, birdhouses, birdcages, etc., so I was thrilled when I found this image.




When I found plain white cotton napkins, I knew just what to do with them.





  I used my ink jet printer and Lesley Riley's TAP Transfer Artist Paper.  
 



I cut the image out so there wasn't any white showing around it.





 I ironed it on the back side as instructed.  (It took less than a minute to do this step).



 Here's the finished product.

I am excited to use these for my next dinner party. 


I've had a few questions about how washing affects the graphics.  I've never had any problems and the graphics still look great!

Thank you for visiting!

  2. Thanks for showing how you made these. They look fabulous! I found some little grapevine wreaths at Hobby Lobby that would look great as napkin rings with your napkins.

  19. These turned out great Pam! Have you happened to wash them yet? I have supplies to make some tea towels but am afraid what they will look like once washed.
