Modge Podge with Napkins??


While scouring everywhere looking for fabric with the perfect color of blue and green, I spotted some napkins at Target that made me happy! I already had these shades that I had hot-glued rose petals to many years ago. I removed the petals and got to work.

I had no idea if the napkins would work, but for $2.99 for a pack of napkins, I didn't have much to lose.

I cut out my pattern.

Then my six year old and I Mod-Podged the shades.

I added some ribbon with a glue gun.
And Voila!

The room is still in progress, but I'll show you some "completed" projects in a few days (I hope!).


  1. Can wait to see the pictures you have coming. Those lamp shade came out perfect. Love the color combination of the turg, pink and white.

  2. This is adorable. It definitely made me cheery.


  3. Super Cute!! I Love to find new ways of doing things!

  4. Cute color combos. I was just thinking of doing that on some Easter eggs w/ napkins.

  5. great minds work alike:-) I too was thinking of doing a few larger lampshades with the modge podge and napkins-- and now Tardevil has given another great idea...
    your shades are adorable, bright and cheerful.. cant wait to see the rest of the room.

  6. What a great idea that is! I have a little tealight lamp and I tried doing something to the shade but I'm not liking it at all so I may try this!

  7. What a great idea and is so easy! I'm going to try it soon!

  8. So cute! I am a Mod Podge addict, but there are times I cheat and use a little Elmer's school glue too! :)
