First things first, I know my Canadian readers have already had their turkey dinners and pumpkin pie...but today I, along with some of the other May Arts Ribbonistas are sharing some Thanksgiving TableScape ideas. So, for those of you that like to plan really early, or the others who have not yet had their Thanksgiving 2014, here is a quick and easy way to dress up YOUR next TableScape.
I started my napkin rings with something that I am sure everyone has seen before, AND you already have in your home. The empty toilet paper roll.
By simply adding some very pretty ribbon, a little hot glue, and perhaps a leaf or a button....taaa daaaaa! You have some festive fall napkin rings.
My leaf napkin ring is REALLY quick and easy. I cut my roll in half and glued a piece of my 2" burlap/cotton blend ribbon around the outside. I tacked my leaf in place with a little hot glue, and then added my lace and pearl ribbon. My final touch was the simple brown solid wrinkled ribbon bow on top of the leaf.
The burlap/cotton blend flower napkin ring is a little more involved.
Once again I started by covering the roll with the 2" ribbon. I then cut a rough scallop pattern by hand with some nice sharp scissors. I started with larger scallops, and then worked my way down smaller. Then I simply coiled and adhered the scalloped ribbon to a small cardstock circle. I then added some loops of the metallic baker's twine, and a vintage button in the middle.
Thank you so much for stopping by to check out my quick tutorial on how to create these simple Thanksgiving Tablescape Napkin Rings.
