I think linen napkins are so pretty. They come in all colors and you can get them with all kinds of different details around the edges. While I was at Target the other day (shopping in aisles that had nothing to do with what I actually went in there for), I came across a set of linen napkins on clearance. I loved their color and have been looking for projects that I could try some new products on and they fit the bill.

Supplies Needed To Make These Custom Linen Napkins:
I have been sharing my new obsession with Chalk Couture in my Instagram stories. I recently found out about their products and couldn’t wait to get my hands on them to check them out for myself. I love chalkboard signs, but find it hard to make them look really good. The chalk paste from Chalk Couture was what made me excited to try the brand. It makes the whole chalkboard sign-making thing so easy. The best part is that the chalk can be wiped away with a damp cloth and you can reuse whatever chalkboard you put it on. It isn’t permanent. This is important to me because I feel like I am getting more bang for my buck this way. It isn’t a “one-and-done” project. I can do many different projects with it.
They got me on board with their chalk paste, but Chalk Couture also has ink! The ink is a permanent option that I am going to share with you today.
I have been in the spring mood, but the weather in Iowa is still in the winter mood. The other day, I decided to set a spring tablescape with the custom linen napkins I made with the Chalk Couture ink.
My first project with Chalk Couture was a lot of fun. The ink was easy to use and now, I am even more excited to try more ink projects and I can’t wait to get my hands on the chalk paste.
I used two different flower transfers for the linen napkins to really bring spring to the tablescape.
The flowers added a bit of whimsy to the linen napkins. There are many ink colors to choose from, but I played it safe with my first order to just get black and white. Those colors are safe for me. I know I can use them for all kinds of projects and I like the touch of black on this table idea.
I put together a short video to show you exactly how the process works so you can see the products in action.
Once the ink dried, I set the ink by ironing over the flowers with parchment paper and a towel. Now, these linen napkins can be washed and used for years to come!
I would love to have you check out my Chalk Couture shop and tell me what you would try first. Or, if you would like to join my team, that would be even better! I have joined a fun group of ladies on this Chalk Couture venture and we are all learning together. Chalk Couture takes the guess-work out of projects. They make it easy. A break from the usual project where I come up with the idea and get it to the finished product is always welcome. Sometimes, I just want to create to create. I want it to be easy and don’t want to have a lot of thought go into it. Chalk Couture has so many transfers that make the possibilities endless! Let’s make some fun things together.
Stay tuned for more projects!
