As you may already know…I love Halloween! I’m not super into the bloody, creepy, scary Halloween as much as I am into the Happy Halloween. Although I love the orange and black colors together, I think there is something so chic about black and white together. So for this Halloween table, I decided to do a Chic Halloween theme!
There are so many ways to celebrate Halloween! I know there are people who do not like Halloween because it can be scary and gory, but there are a number of other themes you can use to celebrate this super fun fall holiday, and this is one of them!
For my chic black and white table, I thought that it would be really fun to add in a creative napkin. Have you heard of these Sharpie Stained Fabric Markers? They are really cool, because you can draw into fabric and they will not wash off or fade. So, I decided to use the black marker to make a spider web onto cloth napkins.
For the napkin rings, I simply had some black ribbon around, so I glued a sparkly spider that I found at Micheal’s Arts and Crafts, onto the ribbon and tied it around the napkin. If you cannot find sparkly spiders, you can make your own by adding a thin layer of mod podge onto a plain spider, pour black glitter over it, allow it to dry, then cover it with another thin layer of mod podge to set the glitter!
This is a really simple DIY that you can do with friends. You can also get kids involved, and let them decorate their own napkins any way they want.
Spiderweb Napkins With Sparkly Spider Napkin Ring
*Sparkly Spiders (If you cannot find sparkly spiders, you can make your own by adding a thin layer of mod podge onto a plain spider, pour black glitter over it, allow it to dry, then cover it with another thin layer of mod podge to set the glitter!)
*Iron the napkins so they lay flat
*With the black fabric marker, draw a small dot in the center of the napkin
*Draw a line straight up and down from the dot, then draw a line right and left, leaving a large cross shape
*Then, draw a line straight out in between each of those lines (picture below)
*Then make a web look but making “u” lines between each straight line
*For the napkin ring, cut a piece of black ribbon, about 6 inches give or take, and glue the spider in the center with a glue gun
*Tie the ribbon around the napkin
