I had my twin sister (new team captain Jessica of Eco-Friendly Freckles) out for tea and blueberry pancakes earlier this year, and I had to take pictures of her handmade floral napkin rings that I used for the occasion. Jessica will be coming over tomorrow to help me out with making handmade decorations for my son's first birthday, and I just got to thinking about how crafty we can be. Getting crafty is what we "twin sisters" do best. ;o)~ Back to the napkin rings ... they are so simply lovely! I hope to use them again for breakfast in the morning.
Jessica is quite the innovative artist! I love how she is resourceful with the materials she chooses to use; these napkins rings are made out of left-over paper towel cardboard rolls and satin ribbons. Jessica doesn't have her hand-made napkin rings listed in her Etsy shop, but she does recommend that you give this craft a try for yourself! Grab a friend, a child, or throw a craft party, and don't forget to have fun! You can see all of Jessica's other eco-friendly and artful creations by checking out her shop at: http://www.etsy.com/shop/ecofriendlyfreckles
Jessica recommends that you check out these two short instructional videos if you are interested in making easy hand-made napkin rings yourself:
Purple is my favorite color! Thank you again Jessy for these lovely napkin rings; what a beautiful and thoughtful gift. I love how these napkin rings match with my place settings too! :-) "xoxo"
