Crafting: Fall Leaf Napkin Ring
Of course, I have more guests coming than napkin rings. But I found this really adorable picture on a blog... and of course, I cannot remember where I saw it to give them credit.
and thought it would be fun to make some felt leaf napkin ring.
So I started with some very inexpensive felt and pipe cleaners.
I traced out and cut out bunches of leaves.
I sewed some veins on a few of the leaves but you can leave this step off.
Twist the pipe cleaner in half twice.
Layer three or four leaves on a surface.
Scrunch up the leaves near the stem end of the bunch, place in the pipe cleaner. And twist the pipe cleaner around the end of the bunch.
Now wrap the ends of the pipe cleaners around the napkin ring
Fan out the leaves a little.
And slide your napkin in the ring. Voila.
The total cost of the napkin rings was 2.10. It is a great project for the kids and may have them help with setting the table.
