So my mission is to get myself a nice-looking table. Here are a handful of the napkin rings that I've been making:
This napkin ring was done on a stretchy jewelry ring with a large central bead and seed beads on either side. I just tied a knot in the end.
The napkin rings are actually on a toilet paper roll that I covered with beige card stock. A plastic wrap or tin foil tube would be better because they are smaller but this did the trick. I thought this could be used as a neat storage option or for gift-giving.
This is the back view of the large central bead ring shown above. It could be an alternate look or you could make a whole set this way.
These are beaded on an elastic jewelry cord as well. I made one long circle for each colour and then just twisted them around the napkin with the twisty part at the back.
I like all of these rings which is a good start. Now I only need a new tablecloth, napkins, maybe a decorative runner, a nice centrepiece,....
