St. Patrick's Day Napkins

Thanks to well meaning gift givers, we have ended up with a very large collection of plain cloth napkins, so we decorated some of them for St. Patrick's Day.
This was a very easy project. All you need is a thumb, some green paint, cloth napkins, and a thin paint brush.

Each petal of the clover is made with a thumb print. Then the stem is painted on.

This would be a good project for younger children or as a continuing project to be added to each year, as your child grows.

Very cool. Simple, and it will be a fun tradition to use the napkins each year.

P.S....I love his "lucky" green shirt he's wearing while painting. ;)

Hmmm...could be fun to have different sized thumbprints from several kids as well... Great idea!

I like this. Simple and sweet. I don't have any St. Patrick's day decorations, so this might be a project we end up doing.
