DIY Festive Firework Napkins


Are you looking for a whimsical way to dress up your Fourth of July table this year? The Deen Team has a fun idea for dazzling your guests by creating your own tabletop fireworks. Check out how to make your own homemade firework napkin!

Step 1: You will need some bleach, a pencil with eraser, a pencil sharpener, toothpicks, and some fabric or linens. We happened to have some great navy napkins from our last shoot handy, but any fabric or dark-colored linen will do.

 Step 2: Add bleach to a small jar.

Step 3: Use the pencil sharpener to make the tip of the pencil eraser smaller.

Step 4: Dip the eraser into the bleach.

Step 5: Press firmly onto the fabric letting the bleach soak in. This dot will be the anchor of the firework.

Step 6: Dip the toothpick into the bleach.

Step 7: Make curved lines coming from the anchor. 

Step 8: Use the tip of the eraser to embellish the firework at the end for a finishing touch.

Step 9: Finish setting your table with some pretty red, white, and blue touches!

Happy 4th of July, everyone!
