My oldest daughter made them for me during her childhood days, one year for Thanksgiving.
I have packed them all around the United States, for a minimum of 25 years,
I think they have held up really well.
I have gathered a few acorns from our old oak tree, picked a few last blooms of orange zinnias,
just to add a little earthy zest to my Thanksgiving Table this year.
I think it would be fair to say, that one could use twine, jute or burlap if they wanted
to trade out the yarn for something else.
The form of the napkin ring may be made out of any pliable cardboard.
I would suggest Kleenex boxes, a cover to an old tablet, cover to a catalog etc...
Cut the ring form into the size and shape you would like, securing the ends together with either
craft glue or hot glue, then wrap the napkin ring form in masking tape.
Use the material of your choice and wrap the ring until it is well covered securing with glue.
Add a petite bow, bell, really the embellishment of your choosing and presto... magic!
I love them...
Will you be using any nostalgic keepsakes in your home this Thanksgiving...
