Many of us want to add a little something to our place settings without breaking the bank on getting coordinating tableware and decorations for every holiday. This Thanksgiving I needed a quick way to spruce up paper napkins for Thanksgiving dinner, so here’s what I did: (click the image if it’s small)
I folded the paper napkins into quarters, wrapped gold ribbon around them, and secured the ribbon ends together with half of a glue dot (the kind you peel off paper). I used the other half of the glue dot to attach a fabric leaf that I had written that person’s name on with metallic Sharpie. If you don’t have glue dots, you can use hot glue - just make sure you don’t glue the decoration to the napkin! That’s it - it took me less than 5 minutes to make enough for my whole family!
- Paper napkins, two cents each
