Mother’s Day Gift: Monogrammed Napkins

Monogrammed Napkins

If your mother likes to entertain, she can never have too many cloth napkins on hand. It is easy to transform basic white napkins into a personalized set with Martha Stewart Multi-Surface Paint and a pretty letter stencil. They’ll even hold up well in the washer so she can use them again and again!



– Cotton cloth dinner napkins

– Martha Stewart Multi-Surface Paint

– Martha Stewart Monogram Stencil Set

– Foam brush

– Masking or painter’s tape

Step 1

Step 1:

Position the stencil in the corner of the napkin and tape in place. Use a small amount of paint on a foam brush and apply an even layer to the stencil using a blotting motion until covered. Remove stencil and let dry.

Step 3

Step 2:

Run a strip of tape along the hem of the napkin. Run your finger along the edge of the tape to make sure it’s flush to the napkin — this will prevent any paint from seeping through. Apply an even layer of paint along the edge of the napkin below the tape. Let dry and add a second coat if necessary so that none of the white napkin shows through. Repeat this process for the other edges of the napkin.

Wrapped Napkins

A set of four or six napkins wrapped in a pretty bow will be sure to wow your mom!
