Festive table napkin rings with a knitted flower embellishment.
Approximate Time: 10 minutes each one
- cardboard tube
- oddments of wools (yarn)
- PVA glue
- craft knife/scissors
- Cut tube into 1.5" wide rings. Toilet or kitchen rolls are ideal.
- Glue or tape one end of wool to secure to card tube.
- Wind wool around to cover card. I used double wool for speed.
- When the tube is completely covered glue or tape end to secure.
- Glue a button on to decorate.
I also knitted a small flower for some. See flower directions below.
- Cast on 7st with dk using 3mm needles.
- 1st row: inc into every stitch - 14sts.
- Purl 1 row.
- Next row: inc into every stitch - 28sts.
- Beginning with a purl row, st.st 7 rows.
- *Next row: k2tog to end - 14sts.
- Purl 1 row.
- K2tog to end - 7sts.
- Leaving a long end, thread through sts and fasten off loosely.
- Gather cast on sts tightly and join row ends.
- Stuff lightly and pull up length tightly and fasten off.
- Take wool around edge of flower and pass needle through middle to make petals.
- Work a few stitches in centre.
- If you want to knit a 2 coloured flower st.st 4 rows at *, change colour and st.st 3rows.
These would make great Christmas gifts or be perfect to use for that special dinner party. I gift wrap in cellophane for an extra special touch. I've made 100s of these over the years for my childrens' school fairs.

These easy-to-make napkin holders will add a festive touch to your holiday table.
Approximate Time: 30- 45 minutes
- green craft foam
- green squeeze paint
- red felt
- paper punch
- Draw a simple holly leaf shape on green craft foam. Mine measures about 4 inches in length and 2 1/4 inches in width from point to point.
- Cut this out, then trace and cut it out again so you have two identical shapes.
- Use squeeze paint to decorate one leaf, tracing the edges and adding leaf veins. On the second leaf, just trace around the edges. Allow the paint to dry.
- Use a paper punch to cut three holly berry circles from red felt and glue these in a cluster at one end of your first holly leaf.
- Complete the napkin holder by gluing one side of a clothespin to the top of your second leaf, the one without the berries, and then gluing the berry leaf to the other side of the clothespin. Allow the glue to dry.
- To use, simply press the leaves to open the clothespin, slide the napkin in, and close the clothespin over the napkin.
