Black-and-White Halloween Cloth Napkins

Set a frightening Halloween table with these easy-to-make black-and-white cloth napkins.

What You'll Need

  • Black-and-white photocopy of copyright-free clip art
  • Ink-jet transfer paper
  • Purchased white cloth napkin (ours has black trim)
  • Iron
  • Thin pillowcase or fabric scrap
  1. Photocopy clip art onto ink-jet transfer paper, sizing the image for the napkin and reversing it so it will face the right direction when applied to the napkin. Trim the paper 1/4 inch from the edges of the image.
  2. Remove any water from the iron and preheat to the cotton setting. Press the napkin to remove any wrinkles; let cool.
  3. Place the transfer image facedown on one corner of the napkin. Cover with a thin pillowcase or fabric scrap. Apply pressure with a hot, dry iron for 30 seconds; more time may be needed for a large image. Iron with a continuous straight motion from top to bottom and then side to side, covering the entire area.
  4. When the fabric is completely cooled, carefully peel away the backing paper.
