Napkin Art has become quite popular lately. I find it a bit humorous, because I remember doing a form of napkin art with my grandma many, many moons ago. Of course, napkins are now available in a variety of different sizes and have awesomely beautiful art that they didn’t have years ago.
This decorative art form has so many different application techniques that you could easily spend hours of time trying to find a tutorial that is easy to follow.
I’ve curated several videos for your viewing that not only showcase some great projects for inspiration but give a variety of application techniques that will help you get started if you want to venture into this fun and surprisingly simple art. None of the tutorials provided require a lot of different tools so you could easily get started right away.
