I love adding little DIY elements to my holiday decorations and dinner table. These fluffy snowflake napkins were such a simple project, but they look oh so festive on the table. And while it is difficult to tell in the photos, the snowflakes are actually three dimensional and fluffy to the touch. The added texture makes them not only pretty, but brings a nice cozy element to the table too!
- 1/4 yard of Fusible Thermolam (you can purchase this at the fabric store)
- Cricut Maker and rotary blade
- Cricut fabric cutting mat
- Colorful cotton napkins (these are from World Market)
Begin by downloading the snowflake image here:
Then open your Cricut design space and upload the image selecting cut only. Size your snowflakes however you want, but mine were about 2-3″ in diameter. Then lay a 12″ by 12″ piece of fusible thermolam glue side down onto your fabric cutting mat and load into your Cricut maker. Make sure your rotary blade is loaded and select felt from the materials setting and then cut out your snowflakes.
Once the snowflakes are cut, peel away the excess thermolam and remove your snowflakes.
Next, simply lay out the snowflakes on your napkins glue side down (the glue side is the part that is rough to the touch and has small little dots) and iron over the thermolam until the glue melts and adheres to the napkins.
And that’s it! So simple and such a fun addition to my holiday table this year. And in case you are wondering the thermolam is made from polyester which means that it is completely machine washable! So don’t worry about getting these guys dirty!
