Honeycomb Stamped Cocktail Napkins

honeycomb hexagon stamped napkin

I’ve had this idea to make a quick stamp out of cardboard for a while now, and I’m happy to report that it works awesome. This project took me about 20 minutes total and turned out super cute.  I bought a whole slew of colorful linen napkins from Crate and Barrel the other day and now I’ve got a honeycomb pattern that is cool, unique and ready just in time for spring drinks (we can hope, right?).

Like I said, this is a quick project using cardboard as a stamp!  I know you’ll love it!  If you’d like the full tutorial and materials list 


  • Tulip Soft – White Fabric Paint
  • Solid Color Napkins
  • Scrap Piece of cardboard, at least 6″ long.

ONE using a ruler, bend your cardboard piece at inch intervals until you’ve bent it six times.  TWO cut on the last (sixth) bend.  THREE tape the cardboard piece into a circle (a hexagon circle!).

FOUR dip your hexagon into the paint. FIVE stamp your napkin. SIX repeat in whatever design you’d like!

Such a cute turnout, right?  It looks like something you could buy at West Elm, but when your friends come for drinks, you’ll get much more satisfaction saying, “I made them” when they ask where you got the impossibly cute napkins. I know that we could buy half of the stuff we make around here, but to me, it’s all about the satisfaction of knowing that I created something beautiful, you know?

    Love these Erin – and I agree – making pretty things is much more fun than buying them.

    Oh Erin, I just love these!! That is my absolute favorite color blue. They really do look like something off West Elm, and I just can’t get enough West Elm.

    This project turned out fantastic. I love DIY projects that don’t end up looking like a DIY product. While we could buy things like this who wants to spend the time looking for exactly what we want and spend extra money when we could just make them ourselves.

    These are adorable, Erin! I agree with Ashley – love that they are DIY, but don’t look like it!

    I wholeheartedly agree about choosing to make vs. buy in some cases. I look around my home and one of the things I treasure most about it are all the little details that came from projects made at my kitchen counter. Your napkins turned out so good! Another genius idea Erin.

    These are beautiful and so doable! I am starting to obsess over the honeycomb pattern as spring is around the corner! Definitely will give them a try. Thanks for all your ideas, love your blog and keeping up with your home updates! Your style is inspirational!

    I couldn’t agree more! I painted a monogram and “est. 2014″ on burlap and then framed it for my friends bridal shower instead of ordering one off of Etsy. I knew she loved monograms and was especially excited that she has a new initial to use so after she opened it I mentioned that I wanted to make her something special and she was like , ” you made this!!!?” It was the BEST feeling :)

    Such an adorable idea!

    Oh Erin, these are gorgeous! They definitely look like you could have picked them up at a boutique. I’m going to have to find me some linen napkins to play with now!
