Embellished Napkin Rings

This year for Christmas I wanted to make something special for my friend and artist Cassandra but I was having the hardest time deciding what to create. Cassandra is so talented and makes everything and makes it so beautifully that I thought what on earth could I give her that she hasn't already made or doesn't already have a bazillion of. Well one day recently while scouring a thrift store I came across a set of napkin rings. They were cheap looking avocado green straw rings but I saw some potential. I knew I could make them into something special for Cassandra to use for her tea parties. I brought them home and began the transformation. I wrapped them in strips of white cotton fabric then embellished them with lace, seam binding ribbon, silk roses, and vintage millinery.

I picked up a set of lace edged, embroidered vintage napkins at an antique store to give her with the napkin rings.

Today I gave the napkin rings and napkins to Cassandra and I was overjoyed that she loved them...they are pretty sweet, in fact, I think I need a set now ;) xoxo, Molly

  3. I love to make gifts for people. I know the time and thought that went into creating these made Cassandra feel loved. Did you ever make any for yourself? They are really dainty and pretty. Hugs, Linda P.
