It all started with a giant Christmas decor sale at Big Lots, where I found a thin wired strand of garland with pinecones.
When I saw it, the light bulb above my head turned on and it hit me - napkin rings for the dining room! I wanted a set of ten napkin rings, so I made sure I had enough garland for ten pinecone clusters with a few inches of greenery on either side. Then I just grabbed some wire cutters, snipped the garland every few inches, and twisted each piece into a napkin-ring-sized circle (tucking the ends around the circle to make it stay). Needle-nose pliers would probably help with this (for getting the corners twisted and tucked under), but I just took the ruin-your-nails approach instead.
So simple, but so cute when they're done!
Here they are added to the dining room Christmas table:
Anyone else doing any super-simple Christmas crafts? I'd love to hear all about them!
