UNIQUE NAPKIN RINGS



I thought it would be fun to be a little creative and make my own napkin rings. I did however realize that they were a little time consuming, but in the end they were cute, and I was proud to display them at my dinner table.

Here is what you will need:

~A choice of ribbon (medium and small width)
~Some basic thin wire
~Sewing machine and thread

Cut the length of the wider ribbon to the size of the ring you'd like. Cut the wire to the size of the ring you'd like plus another inch. Sew on the more narrow ribbon on top of the wider ribbon folding it about 1/2" (see picture).


Sew the sides together. Note: for better effect use two different colored ribbons and opposite shade color thread (ex. black on white)

Insert the wire and fold it creating the ring. Fold the wire atop itself and twist.
To finish off the ring cut a small piece, about 1.5",of ribbon (of your choice, I went with the more narrow one) and sew it on the ring combining the two side.
