Holidays call for special attention to your dinner table but that doesn’t mean you have to spend a fortune. Our DIY Hanukkah stenciled napkins are simple in design yet add a touch of elegance to your family gathering.

A template with two of the most prominent Judaic symbols—the Star of David and ‘Chai,’ the Hebrew word for ‘life,’ are easily cut out with a precision knife.

Use royal blue paint and crisp white napkins or revitalize napkins you already have. Either way, you can afford to whip up enough for everyone in no time at all.
