Napkin rings

sprout_wiNovember 12, 2011

Any ideas on how to make nice, but plain, napkin rings look sensational? I was thinking of using seashells, but am open to anything. I am thinking of up-scaling them to sell at a craft show. I have:

1 set of white china napkin rings - round

2 sets of ivory gathered silk napkin rings - round

1 set of clear multi-colored plastic - square napkin rings

1 set of large shells drilled to hold a napkin - natural shape


Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

I would paint the white china rings with pebeo paint pens. I like repetive designs that resemble flowers but are kind of geometric.

The others I would try to make into something else other than napkin rings. Could the gathered silk ones be part of a flower brooch? Could the others be made into pincushions?
Or Christmas ornaments?

Just wonderin'
