DIY napkin folding easter bunny ear tutorial

Easter is in two weeks and I’m already contemplating my holiday table setting. I like to keep things simple and stick to bright colours, fresh flowers, and a few seasonal decorations.

This year, I’m turning our ordinary linen table napkins into bunny ears for a fuss-free way to add a little fun to the table. We use cloth face-cleaners every night, but a few folds (ten actually) transform this ordinary table item into something festive and seasonal. Here’s how you do it:

Step 1: Start with a large square cloth napkin or piece of fabric. I like 20″ x 20″ , but any large size will do. Be sure the linen is crease free and/or ironed before you start, and place the material wrong-side up on a table or flat surface.
