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.
