Holiday Napkin Rings

A couple of weeks ago I posted a picture on Facebook of some felt embroidered leaves I made. I loved them but was at a loss as to what to do with them. A friend of mine from high school that I talk to on Facebook, Ronnie Applewhite, suggested I somehow make them into napkin rings. Well I finally got the time to try it out, here is my result.

I also thought it looked good as a wine glass wrap. The how to? Super Simple. I make the leaves from three layers of embroidered felt, you could machine stitch them or even use silk floral leaves. I then attached them to a piece of bias that that I had inserted floral wire into. I twisted buttons onto each end of the floral wire so that they couldn't poke anyone or get stuck on anything. I sewed them onto the bias tape but they could be glued just as easily. So there you go Ronnie, Napkin Rings!

What do you think? Let me know via comments. Have a great week! Jamie.


  1. Love them! Very cute; great way to use the leaves :)

  2. I love them! And I love that they could be used as either a napkin ring or to go on the wine glass. Looks great either way!

  3. Those are so cute! I love the colors too!

  4. Those are awesome, Jamie!
    Great idea! :)

  5. I think they're fantastic!! But, then again, perhaps my opinion is biased in this situation. ;-)
