Making seasonal napkins is super easy with the right tools. Using a Cricut Cutting Machine and Cricut Easy Press make these a breeze to make for fun designs on your napkins.
I like the not so spooky side of Halloween and these No Tricks, Just Treats napkins are perfect for the black and white tablescape I’m planning.

Over the summer I made a set of Nautical Napkins for a summer tablescape and I loved how they turned out and how easy they are to make. I bought inexpensive black napkins with plans to dress them up for Halloween.
Halloween Napkins DIY
I found these napkins at Walmart, but they only came with 2 per package. Still, they were reasonably priced, so I didn’t mind buying a few packs of them. These are a cotton-poly blend.
The first step for any Easy Press project is to remove the wrinkles from the base material. I use the Easy Press set at 350°.
Deciding on the graphic to use is the fun part of the project. I started with a blank canvas in Cricut Design Space and clicked on Images. From there, I typed in no tricks just treats in the search bar. A cute graphic was right at the top. I clicked on it and then clicked add to canvas.
Steps for Using Cricut and Easy Press for DIY Halloween Napkins
Once the graphic is on the canvas, resize it to the size you need for your project. With the napkins folded, I had a little over four inches across the work with. Use the tool on the bottom right of the graphic to get it to the size you want. Alternately, you can click on the size tool in the tool bar, but that’s always a guess, so I like to use the slide tool.
After making it 4″ wide, right click the graphic and clicked duplicate. I did this four times for the napkins I’ll be making.
After resizing and duplicating, it’s ready to cut. Since the graphics are small, all of them can be cut from one sheet of Heat Transfer Vinyl (HTV).
Before cutting, if you’re using HTV, make sure to click on the Mirror Tool. Your words won’t come out right if you forget to do this.
Place the HTV shiny side down on a cutting mat and set the Cricut to Iron On. Cut and weed the graphic before checking the position on your project.
Use the Cricut Heat Guide to set the temperature and time for the Easy Press. Run the Easy Press over the project piece to warm it, then add the iron on graphic. Allow the backing to cool down so that it’s only warm to the touch before removing it.
How fun are these napkins? I think they are great for any Halloween party or table setting.
I’m creating a Halloween tablescape using black, white, and silver that I’ll be sharing soon. These napkins are the perfect finishing touch for the table.
Using the Easy Press is such a great way to make personalized or fun phrases on napkins. I’m already thinking about some Thanksgiving and Christmas napkins.
