Here's a really sweet project that's been in my head for quite some time now, and has finally made it into reality just in time for Rosh HaShana, or the holiday celebration of your choice! In just a few minutes you can make a whole set of charming napkin rings to use yourself or give as a gift.
- miniature apples
- artificial leaves
- ribbon - length required to encircle napkin and tie a nice bow
- Glue apple to leaf.
- Glue ribbon to back of leaf
- Glue a line of sequins to apple
- Wasn't that just too easy?
And wouldn't these be just adorable bracelets for flower girls at a fall wedding? Or omit the ribbon, glue a pin back to the back of the leaf and you've got a unique piece of jewelry!
If you can't find small apples, you can certainly create something beautiful with any number of small fruits or flowers. A whole set of napkin rings, each one using a different combination of artificial berries and tiny fruits could be stunning! Give it a try. It's such a great feeling to set a gorgeous table, that it's well worth investing just a little bit more time than usual. I promise!
