WHAT YOU NEED
  • White cotton napkins
  • Crayons
  • Iron & ironing board
  • Safety scissors
  • Tape measure
  • Newspaper
  • Pillowcase

HOW TO DO IT
  • Decide what images you would like on the napkins. Set out holiday books, magazines and cards to look through for ideas.

  • Have your children draw their designs on a piece of paper before transferring them onto the napkins.

  • This drawing can be their template. (Print out our illustration template for additional ideas)

  • Decide where you would like the design to appear on the napkin and place the template under this area.

  • Press firmly with the crayons as you draw the image(s) onto the cloth.

  • Place a newspaper and then a pillowcase over the crayon image you have drawn.

  • Iron on the pillowcase with a hot dry iron, to fuse the crayon to the cloth.

  • Your napkins are now ready to part of the Holiday table.

TIPS
  • Wash the napkins in cold water so that the design does not fade.

FOLLOW UP FUN
  • Your children can make wonderful gifts for friends and family by personalizing aprons, pillowcases and guest towels.
