This is a guide about making rosemary napkin rings. The aroma of fresh rosemary will tempt the taste buds of your dinner guests or family for the meal to come.
This is a fun craft to involve the kids in and they can let their imaginations run wild. It is also a great way to use up some of those old spices you don't use anymore.
A cute little turkey idea you and your kids can make together to add a little fun to your Thanksgiving table.
Make some budget-friendly decorations (placemats, napkin rings, a paper garland, and heart-shaped confetti) for a special Valentine's dinner with your loved one, using red, white, and pink, with a dash of gold, as the colors of choice. Add a few beads and candles, and voila! the perfect setting for a romantic dinner-for-two.
Approximate Time: 60 minutes
- three A4-sized pink marbled cardboard sheets
- three A4-sized sheets of red paper
- one sheet of white ordinary printer paper
- pictures of roses
I used four roses cut from an old piece of wallpaper.
- three paper lace tray liners
See http://www.partyatlewis.com/ for a possible supplier.
- clear Contact paper
- quick-drying rich gold spray paint
- pair of standard scissors
- quick-drying glue
- a few sheets of old newspaper to protect the working area
- heart-shaped cookie cutter
- heart-shaped paper punch
- optional: candles and beads to complete the setting
- Position one of the paper lace tray liners over the long side of a cardboard sheet, so that the lace of the liner will be close to the edge of the cardboard.
- Spray a layer of the rich gold paint over the tray liner. This means that the tray liner serves as a stencil.
- Carefully lift the tray liner (stencil), so as not to disturb the pattern that has been sprayed onto the cardboard.
- Repeat the process on the other long side of the cardboard.
- Do the same with a second cardboard, so that you will have made two placemats.
- Cut out the roses and decide how they will be placed on the placemats, and glue them in place.
- Allow to dry thoroughly.
- Cover the placemats front and back with the clear Contact paper: ~ see: Craft Project: Christmas Coasters for advice on how to do this.
To make the napkin rings:
- Cut two pieces size 2.3 inches x 8.2 inches from the third marbled cardboard.
- Place a tray liner on a sheet of newspaper.
- Spray the tray liner with a layer of the rich gold paint and let it dry thoroughly.
- Cut two strips from the tray liner and glue each of these onto one of the 2.3 inches x 8.2 inches cardboard.
- Fold each cardboard into a tube to make a napkin ring and glue together where it overlaps.
- Place the cookie cutter on a sheet of red paper and trace around the edges.
- Move the cookie cutter to a different position on the paper and trace around the edges again.
- Continue until you have traced as many hearts as possible onto the paper. You should get approximately 12 hearts on a sheet of paper.
- Fill the second sheet of red paper with traced hearts too.
- Cut out all the hearts and erase any pencil marks.
- Use a long tacking stitch on your sewing machine to sew the hearts two-two together to make a garland.
- Once you have sewn over the first set of hearts, continue stitching for 10 stitches, so that you will make a string from the thread, and then sew over the second set of hearts. Stitch 10 stitches again, before adding the third set of hearts, then the fourth set, etc.
- Continue until all the sets of hearts have been added.
- Fold the hearts slightly open to create a three-dimensional effect.
Use the heart-shaped punch to punch red and white hearts from white and red paper.

This project is sure to put a smile on the face of each and every dinner guest.
Frilly, romantic, inexpensive, simple to make, and so versatile!
- white flexible wire or white pipe cleaners
- lace trim
- narrow velveteen ribbon
You can make these any size or shape you want. For Valentine's Day, of course, you will want to make heart shapes. Experiment with the wire getting the shape and size you want. Cut the wire leaving an extra fourth of an inch to use in bending the ends together when you complete the project. Thread the wire/pipe cleaner through the "channel" which forms the upper edge of the lace trim. As you thread the wire through, push it together to get the desired fullness (generally 2 times the length of the wire is sufficient). Bend the two ends of the wire together. Shape the wire to form a heart with the connection at the bottom. Make a tiny red bow from the ribbon and glue it onto the ruffled heart at the bottom where you joined the ends of the wire.
There are so many ways to use these: as candle rings, napking rings, place card markers with a small piece of paper looped through the heart, etc. They are also pretty scattered on a red tablecloth for a Valentine's celebration.
By using different colored shapes and bows, these can be adapted for many different holidays. They are very pretty as little wreaths to place on the Christmas tree.

If you have your heart set on napkin rings, I'd imagine a wide ribbon in the appropriate color and a little hot glue would work beautifully. However, if you can do a "restaurant fold" or "tent fold," or other fancy napkin fold, that would also work.

Natural fibers appropriate to the theme you have chosen. We had a grape themed wedding and used grape vines and ribbon. Gorgeous and practically free!
