Now that Halloween is over, its time to think about the next few weeks that lead up to Thanksgiving. And since I’m planning on having a few more people at my dinner table this year, I I figured it would be great for everyone to know where they’re sitting without the hassle.
While at Michael’s trying to figure out what to use so soon to expire coupons, I came across some wooden leaf cut outs and the first thing that came to mind was napkin rings!
Here’s what you’ll need
wooden leaf cut outs (.29 cents each)
some type of natural string (hemp, jute, or twine)
Step one: Choose your base color for your leaves
(make sure you have some free help on hand!)
After your base color dries, it’s time to decorate!
Once your leaves are dry, it’s time to attach the string to the back.
turn the leaf over (we painted the back of the leaf too) and squeeze a dab of glue of glue in the middle of the leaf
add another dab of glue on top of the knot
Once the glue dries, you’re done! Now all you have to do is tie your napkin rings around your napkins!
(I used some left over fabric)
Easy right? How many of you will have handmade napkin rings at your dinner table this Thanksgiving?!
