Lacy Valentine Napkin Rings

Frilly, romantic, inexpensive, simple to make, and so versatile!

Materials

  • white flexible wire or white pipe cleaners
  • lace trim
  • Ad
  • narrow velveteen ribbon

Instructions

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.
