How do I change the dictionary form into na-adjective format?

The na-adjective is very easy to conjugate - simply stick 'na' onto the end of the dictionary form of the adjective. 

It very simply modifies the noun that comes after it. 

For example:

kirei (pretty), ki (tree) --> kireinaki (pretty tree)

shizuka (quiet), heya (room) --> shizukanaheya (quiet room)
