How to Make DIY Polka Dot Napkins

While searching for items to use in our Anthro Love series, Lora sent me these napkins to check out!  I love polka dots and bright colors so this was the perfect combination!

To re-create these, I started with a 4-pack of bright colored napkins from Target’s Room Essential’s brand.  To create the gold polka dot effect, I took gold metallic fabric paint and a circle sponge.

After washing and ironing the napkins, I squeezed some fabric paint onto a plate and took a paintbrush to mix it up. Then I laid the napkins out flat on a table and began using the sponge and the paint to make small gold polka dots on the fabric napkins. Here is the finished look:


  • Solid Colored Napkins
  • Metallic Fabric Paint
  • Circle Sponge
