It’s so easy and fun, I think you’re going to love this craft. You may even have every supply that you need on hand. If you don’t want to use a craft iron which you can purchase here: http://amzn.to/2tHkjFa
you can use the “paint on” method that I show in the video. You can purchase napkins here or you may some lovely ones in your stash that you have been saving for a special occasion. http://amzn.to/2trie50
If you are not wild about roses or this particular pattern you can still click on any link on this page and enter a search that is specific to what you’re looking for. Do you want Blue Hydrangea napkins? Aviary themed napkins? French Script? Or would you like to see what your favorite designers are offering? You can search for Michel Design napkins, Punch Studio or Cypress Home. There are other designers out there too. I have been collecting napkins for as long as I can remember. I used to buy them before I knew what to do with them…and I have a few oldies that have been out of circulation for years now but I’ll always find used for them. Back to our project…did you know that you could decoupage using wax? About 3 years ago I was watching a video where someone took a Christmas image that she liked, and placed it over a candle. She placed wax paper over the image and then used a blow dryer to heat the wax enough where the image would settle into it and the wax from the correct side of the waxed paper would hold the image over the candle. Naturally as a crafter like you – I experimented with all types of papers. Some were too thick, (Card Stock) some were too crisp, (Newspaper and magazine) and before long I realized that this craft would work with napkins but I had another idea. I decided to do a faux encaustic look over glass jars.
Dreamy Romantic Decoupage
The end result was so impressive I began to turn bottles, jars and votives into this wax covered decoupaged pieces. It had a very old fashioned look to it and with the endless supply of napkins available-I knew this could keep me busy for months. Especially around the holidays. So I got the following supplies together and made the video above for you to watch and see what I did. As always, don’t forget that you don’t have to purchase just what I list on my site here, You can click on any link and search for anything else you need so you can continue to shop on Amazon without leaving the site.
