Do It Yourself: Lovely Handmade Napkin Rings


I had my twin sister Jessica out for tea and blueberry pancakes this week, and I decided to use her handmade floral napkin rings for the occasion.  They are so lovely that I had to take pictures.  Jessica is quite the innovative artist!  I love how she is resourceful with the materials she chooses to use; these napkins rings are made out of left-over paper towel cardboard rolls and satin ribbons.  Jessica doesn't have her hand-made napkin rings listed in her Etsy shop, but she does recommend that you give this craft a try for yourself!  Grab a friend, a child, or throw a craft party, and don't forget to have fun!  You can see all of Jessica's other eco-friendly and artful creations by checking out her shop at: http://www.etsy.com/shop/ecofriendlyfreckles



Jessica recommends that you check out these two short instructional videos if you are interested in making easy hand-made napkin rings yourself:

Purple is my favorite color!  Thank you again Jessy for these lovely napkin rings; what a beautiful and thoughtful gift.  I love how these napkin rings match with my place settings too! :-) "xoxo"

Awww, Andrea thank you for featuring my handmade napkin rings! Our blueberry pancake breakfast with Bobby was a delight!

I love these napkin rings; I fancy the sleek and classy appearance the satin ribbons add. ;-)
