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.
Step 2: Fold the napkin in half, bringing the top edge down to meet the bottom edge.
Step 3: Repeat the fold again, bringing the top edge down to meet the bottom edge once more.
Step 4: Bring each side into the middle and fold down.
Step 5: Fold the bottom right corner into the middle crease.
Step 6: Fold the right side in half to the centre, forming the ear.
Step 7: Repeat the steps 5 and 6 with the left side.
Step 8: Fold the pointed triangle at the top back and under the napkin.
Step 9: Slip the top left point of the right ‘ear’ into the pocket in the corner of the top of the left ‘ear’.
Step 10: Turn the napkin so it is standing up. Place inside the glass and adjust the ‘ears’.
How are you decorating your Easter table this year?
