Even though Fall temps are far from sight, my heart can’t help but start thinking about the craft projects that come along with the cool crisp air. I had to break into my stash for this Fall scrap wood napkin project and I think you are going to love it as much as I do!
- Small piece of scrap wood (I am using a 1/2 piece leftover from other cuts)
- 1 Fall napkin
- Mod Podge
- Antique Glaze
- Parchment Paper
- Fabric and Raffia
- 1 1/2″ wood bead sphere
- Paint Brush
- Glue Gun
Begin by applying a thin coat of mod podge applied to your scrap wood and allow it to dry. You can speed up this step by using a heat gun or hair dryer to dry.
Once the mod podge has dried you’re gonna separate the thin napkin layers. They are so thin it will be hard to find the individual layers but I promise they’re there! Position the print portion of the napkin where you want, cover it with parchment paper and set it with a hot iron.
Setting it with the iron reactivates the mod podge on the backside of the napkin and secures it without fear of wrinkles!
There may be a bit of excess depending on the size of the napkin and your wood. If so, use sandpaper to rub away the extra! It doubles as a little extra rustic touch. I like to touch the edges of the wood and napkin with a little dab of antique wax for a little icing on top.
Embellish the top of your fall scrap wood piece with a cute ribbon and raffia bow or any other type of embellishment of your choice.
