With only a couple of days to count down to the Jewish holidays, its time to start thinking about a creative table setting.If you would like to add some down to earth homemade creativity to your holiday table then these do it yourself napkin rings will add a touch of elegance without making much of a dent in your wallet! Don’t forget that you can match the ribbon to your holiday table setting theme whether it be Rosh Hashanah, Sukkot, Tu Bishvat, Chanuka, Purim or Passover!
Gather round the kids or any extra hands in the house, and you will be done in a jiffy.
You will need:
- Several cardboard paper towel rolls.
- Choose about 3 yards of an elegant ribbon about 1 1/2 inches wide to make about 24 napkin rings.
- Choose a matching solid ribbon to line the inside of your paper towel holder.
- Choose a thin metallic ribbon (I chose a silver thin ribbon to match my moroccan style ribbon)
- Buy double sided fabric tape. (I found that fabric glue can be very messy)
1-Cut your paper towel holder into equal sizes about 1/4 inch narrower than your ribbon, marking your “cut” lines with a pencil beforehand.
2- Measure and cut the ribbon to fit around the perimeter of the cardboard holder overlapping slightly. The overlap will be the underside of your napkin ring.
3- Line the inside of your napkin ring with the matching ribbon (It doesn’t matter which step you do first)
4- Cover the overlap edges with the narrow matching ribbon, and glue with krazy glue.
5- You can mix blues and vary your hues……. -
6- Slide in a pretty flower, layer over a pretty salad plate….
7- You can even layer your place settings over two table runners set across from each other.
