I know that the time to host family and friends for cozy dinners and parties is upon us, so I thought it would be a good idea to make some napkin rings to make place settings a little more festive. Read on to make this VERY easy project!
All you need for this project is a little bit of faux leather in two different colors, scissors, and a sewing machine. The sewing machine isn't even necessary but it is what I used.
First, cut one of your leather colors into 4 strips that are 6 1/2" x 1 1/2".
Next, fold over one of the short ends a bit and with your scissors, cut a little slit in the leather, about 1/2" into the fold (it will be 1" when laying flat).
With your other piece of leather, cut out 4 simple leaf shapes. If you want to get fancy, cut 4 different leaf shapes. I'm not fancy.
Now all you have to do is attach your leaf to the non-slotted end of your leather strip. I used my sewing machine, but you can easily use a sturdy hand-sewing needle and thread and just tack the leaf down with a few good stitches.
Just slip the leaf through the slit, and you've got a napkin ring.
What was that, 10 minutes? Just add the napkin:
I'm loving it.
