I played around with a few supplies and came up with something new and amazing (not really that amazing, but it sounded good). These napkin rings and napkin fold are easy projects anyone can do in their own Land of Making Do. (No rocket-science degree required here.)
You saw these rabbit-ear napkins yesterday in my All Things Easter tablescape.
I bought this wired “vine” looking twine at Wally World. It sort of looked like a nest, so I knew I could use it for something during Spring.
I’d planned to make these napkin rings for my Early Bird Tablescape last month, but I decided on something I liked better for that table setting. This week, when I made these napkin rings, they morphed into something that didn’t look like a nest at all.
Does Jesus’ crown of thorns come to mind? (I mean no disrespect by combining the napkin rings with rabbit ears, y’all.)
To make these, I cut 4-5 loops at a time from the wired twine roll (with wire cutters).
After cutting, I wrapped the loops a little tighter, forming a smaller opening in the ring.
For the napkin, lay it flat and fold in half, corner to corner. Now you should have a triangle. Maybe yours won’t be wrinkled, but hey, don’t judge me…it’s only a few little wrinkles. Ha. 😉
Beginning at the point, roll the napkin loosely toward the straight folded edge.
Fold the roll in half.
Insert the fold through the napkin ring and adjust the tails to bend out slightly. Softer fabrics work better for bending. My non-starched linen is fairly floppy.
Voila! Nothing fancy here, see?
What activities have you planned for the weekend? Will you be working in the yard, planting pretty flowers for Spring? Will you prepare for Easter and set your table? I’m very interested in what you’ll be doing, so leave me a comment about it, OK?
