What better way to brighten up the table (and mood) than with these lovely bright batik table linens inspired by Indonesian textiles, but made using basic fabric markers and stencils. Dress up your existing old cloth napkins or create them anew, they would make a fabulous hostess gift. I'd love to have some fun making cute, modern tea towels with this idea.
Leave it to the incredibly crafty folks at Martha Stewart to come up with this simple DIY. They include downloadable stencils, as well as the full (yet simple) instructions here.
