She is doing a peacock theme wedding and we need some simple table decorations (that don't cost too much money). Here is a simple DIY idea for the napkins.
Start with hand carving a rubber stamp (Etsy has some great ones, in case your not the crafty type).

First sketch out your design with a pen, marker, or pencil (it doesn't matter). Then start carving into a block of Linoleum, rubber eraser or printing block, with a Lino Cutter. You can find the supplies at any craft store. TIP: The sharper your cutter the easier it is to cut.
Now it's time for stamping...
Use a slightly damp spong to dab the acrylic paint onto the stamp and then evenly press the stamp onto the napkin. TIP: use acrylic paint instead of ink, the ink may run when it gets wet and we don't want that...
