Recently, for Tablescape Thursday, I posted a table setting with a beach/coastal feel.
That table setting also included a fun, easy-to-make starfish napkin fold. Here are the super easy steps to creating this fun napkin fold.
Lay your napkin out on a flat surface, with it turned on the diagonal.
Fold the top corner down until it meets the lower corner.
Fold the right, top corner down toward the bottom center.
Do the same for the left side, folding the top, left corner down to the bottom center.
Turn your napkin over, keeping it in the same orientation as before.
Fold the entire lower half (all layers) of the napkin upward as shown. All layers will be folded upward.
Lift the napkin upward (from underneath) in the center as if you were going to fold it in half.
This is how it should look at this stage. The two lower pointed sections are going to be the two lowers arms of your starfish.
Fold the other “arms” on the left and right of your napkin outward and you’ll see your starfish begin to take shape. You may need to play around a little with it, tugging here and there to form your starfish shape. I didn’t starch my napkins before hand but that would probably make for a crisper starfish.
This fold is just right for a fun, beach themed party or table setting. Have fun creating your starfish napkins!
Pssst: Love trying new napkin folds? You’ll find lots more under the “Tablescape” category at the top of BNOTP.
