5 Fancy Ways to Fold Napkins

Napkins are always an essential part of any table setting. However, in addition to their main function, they can also create a certain mood and atmosphere. 5-Minute Crafts would like to show you some unique napkin-folding ideas that will help you impress all of your guests at the table.

  • Place a square napkin on the table.
  • Then take the first layer on top of the napkin and fold it diagonally.
  • Fold the next layer of the napkin diagonally as well, but stop slightly before the first fold.
  • Tuck the second fold beneath the first one.
  • Fold one more layer and tuck it beneath the previous fold again. The distance between each fold should be equal.
  • Flip the napkin over and fold the left side about 1/3 of the way.
  • Then fold the right side to meet the far edge of the napkin.
  • Tuck the lower-left corner of the napkin under the shortest fold on the left side.
  • Flip the napkin over again and insert your cutlery into the pockets.

2. Candy bowl fold

  • Place a napkin on the table and unfold it.
  • Then fold each corner of the napkin up to the middle.
  • After the first set of folds is done, make another set of folds with each corner in the middle as well.
  • When it’s finished, make one more set of folds to the middle.
  • Flip the folded square over and fold all the corners to the middle.
  • Take a glass, turn it upside down, and put it on the table.
  • Flip the napkin over and place it on the glass.
  • Start carefully folding down each of the corners of the napkin until all of them face down.
  • Once all the corners are folded down, remove the napkin from the glass and turn it over.
  • Now you can place your favorite candies inside.

3. Royal rose fold

  • Take a napkin, unfold it, and place it on the table.
  • Then fold the napkin in half to make a triangle.
  • Grab the napkin by the 2 ends of the triangle and start rolling it toward the top until you reach the center of the triangle.
  • Flip the napkin over.
  • Take one end of the napkin and roll it to the other end. The result should look like a rosette.
  • Tuck the loose end of the roll inside.
  • Then grab the 2 tail ends that stick out from the rosette and pull them apart.
  • Flip over the rosette and adjust the 2 tails so that they look like leaves.
  • The royal rose is ready!

4. Lotus fold

  • Take a napkin, unfold it, and place it on the table.
  • Fold each corner of the napkin to the middle.
  • Flip the napkin over and fold each corner to the middle again.
  • Place one of your hands on the center of the napkin and reach underneath its corner with your other hand.
  • Pull the bottom layer of the napkin up to create a lotus petal.
  • Repeat the previous step with each corner of the napkin, forming lotus petals out of them.
  • Now you can put a plate on it and enjoy your meal.

5. Bunny fold

  • Take a napkin, unfold it completely, then fold it in half to form a long rectangle.
  • Fold it again, in half, lengthwise, to form an even longer and thinner rectangle.
  • Grab the top-left corner and fold it down along the centerline.
  • Repeat with the right side of the napkin.
  • Fold up the bottom corners of the napkin to the center so that the napkin is in a square shape.
  • Bring the left and right edges of the napkin together to the centerline. Now the napkin should look like a kite.
  • Flip the napkin over and fold the upper point of it down to create a triangle.
  • Flip the napkin over and turn it upside down.
  • Then grab the napkin by the bottom corners and bring them together.
  • Tuck one corner into the pocket of the other one.
  • After that, flip the napkin over.
  • Open up the 2 edges of the napkin that are pointing upward, forming them to look like bunny ears.
  • To prevent the bunny from unfolding, you can use a piece of twine or thread.
