Yesterday I showed you how I plan to set my table for our Thanksgiving meal and today I thought I'd share how I crafted some cheap and quick napkin rings from old spoons.
Although they are not really "rings" per say, they are made to hold napkins and I think they turned out sort of cute.
With the help of a scrap piece of wood, a hammer and a old washcloth I hammered the rounded part of the spoon until it was flat.
Then it was time to bend the handle.
To do this, I held the spoon down on my work-space with one hand and with the other hand bent the handle up towards the ceiling.
I then gently continued to bend the handle up and over until it almost touched my work space. . .
To use, I simply folded my napkin into thirds and slipped the spoon onto the napkin.
For name tags, I tucked a little piece of card stock under the handle also.
I think the whole look is very fun!
