Hey it’s Chark again with a post about being polite and using your napkin…well, okay, it’s really about making your own fall napkin rings. I’m not hosting Thanksgiving this year, but when we do, I like to dress up the table without spending lots of cash. These napkin rings are made from paper towel tubes (you can get about four from one tube) and scraps of paper and ribbon I had. First up are my blingy napkin rings. I used black and ivory paper, black grosgrain ribbon and some thin gold string I had. I kept it from some packaging for another product. Do you do that too? Say, “oh, pretty,” and rescue it?
I looovvvee these Fall Felt Flowers from Hero Arts. They are on sale in the store right now and they are just the perfect touch. You get a variety of colors and shapes in each package, so they’re versatile.
I made another version in more typical fall colors with natural-colored string and matte silver brads I received in a card kit. I bet you have a million brads you haven’t used yet—just like me. These felt leaves are great for that because they have a little hole for tying or attaching a brad. You can trim it off too, if you don’t need it.
Here’s a last close-up of the leaves. And if you’re interested in getting your own felt leaves for place cards, napkin rings or making the perfect fall card (maybe a wreath of leaves?) head on over to store, while they are on sale for $1.50 for a pack of 12! Oh, and try some Stickles on the leaves if you’re looking for sparkle!
