Fabric Flower Napkin Rings


As we begin our countdown to Thanksgiving, I have slowly been putting together the table scape and decorations. We are having ten people in total breaking bread together. I wanted to make napkin rings that would match the fabric flower on the Give Thanks Banner I made last week.


First, I started by cutting out fabric circles with my pinking blade, that measure 3 1/4 inches in diameter.

To make the flower:


Fold the fabric circle in half, and then bring the fold into the center. To hold the shape of the flower, sew the bottom together. This makes one petal. Repeat eight times.






Sew four of the petals together in a row, at the bottom.





Sew two groups of four petals together at the bottom, to create a poofy flower.





To create the ring, I cut a paper towel roll tube into 1 1/2 inch sections.



I mod podge-ed 2 inch wide fabric onto the tube, folding over and adhering the excess fabric to the inside of the tube. Let dry for a couple of hours.






While the tubes dry, cuddle up and take a nap with your 110 pound puppy.





Once the tube is dry, adhere the flower to the ring using hot glue.


Voila! A gorgeous fabric flower napkin ring to celebrate Thanksgiving!
