This post is part of our Anthro Love Blog Series -- where we are spending February sharing some Love for Anthro by creating our own DIY Versions of some great products. If you'd like to see all of the posts from this series, go here.

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:


Supplies and Cost:
  • Solid colored napkins (purchased in 4-pack): Target $7, (similar)
  • Metallic Fabric Paint: Hobby Lobby $1 (w/coupon), (similar)
  • Circle Sponge: Already owned-purchased in brush set (similar)

What knock-off items have you made for your home lately?
