Make wall art in calming colors. Create a collage with pastel flower-shaped napkins

Indulge your inner artist and craft this lovable collage on canvas using Mod Podge and napkins. This simple and soothing work of art would be an exceptional gift to parents who are decorating a nursery for a new arrival. It would also look charming on a large living room wall surrounded by complementary accessories, such as a clock or dream catcher. While these instructions use flower-shaped napkins for the collage, you can find plenty of ways to customize it to match your tastes.
If you like the floral look, browse online retailers for a set of napkins in assorted colors. Or, look around your house for other materials that would work beautifully for the collage. For example, gather old scrapbook paper, fabric scraps or other supplies left over from previous projects. Mod Podge is a versatile adhesive that works well with a variety of materials – not just napkins.
