Rose-Inspired Ombré Napkins

By: Stella Blackmon, Clementine Daily

Let Caldrea’s Rosewater Driftwood fragrance, a sun-washed scent of wild florals and cedar, influence a simple, yet sophisticated craft. Celebrate the season of outdoor entertaining by transforming white napkins with a faint ombré of rose color. With only a handful of supplies, this finished craft is the simplest way to elevate any dinner setting. Layer napkins underneath ceramic plates on top of an exposed wood table for a sweet and summery tablescape. Vases of backyard blooms recommended.

Materials

  • Set of white cotton napkins
  • Light pink fabric paint
  • Spray bottles
  • Water

Instructions

  1. Lay napkins out flat.
  2. Add 5 drops of fabric paint into spray bottle.
  3. Fill bottle with water and shake until paint is mixed in.
  4. Spritz the bottom third of the napkin, equally distributing the paint. Let dry in the sun.
  5. For an ombré effect, spray the bottom half of the dyed area to darken the color. For a more dramatic effect, add 2 more drops of paint to the spray bottle for this step.

Notes: Iron napkins if needed, hand wash to be safe.
