Naturally I am all about a floral punch of color! So if you want to get a little creative and do a little craft with the kids (or just with yourself) over the Easter weekend, stop by your local florist (preferably us) for some supplies and take some time to play. Lets learn how to make your very own napkin ring holder.
Supplies you will need:
Cut your aluminum wire into 4 inch strips using your wire cutters. Then roll ends using the end of the needle nose plyers so the ends of the wire form clean, neat ends that won't scratch your guests. Hook them into each other to form a ring. Use your judgement on the size you need for the napkins. Feel free to get creative and bend the ends how you like. I like to form a figure 8 that way it gives me a solid base to glue my flowers and embellishments on.
Determine how you want your flowers and embellishments to lay on your napkin ring. I always set it up first on the table to pre-plan my design. After you get everything the way you like it you can begin gluing it in place. Glue it onto your "seams", this is the ends that you bent into place. Please be careful not to get glue on your hands, this glue is very sticky and you will have one hot mess if you do especially if you use feathers.
We used anemones, hydrangea blossoms and feathers to decorate ours, but you are welcome to use whatever you have available.
Roll up your napkin and place it inside your napkin ring. There you have your very own, handcraft flower napkins for your tablescape.
Sorry I didn't have nicer napkins... Next time I will be better prepared.
