Make Your Own Napkin Rings

We've been discussing "Christmas lists," pretend playing with baby Jesus and the nativity scene beneath our tree, and giving our Christmas cds a run for their money, as they've been filling the house with Christmas cheer for quite some time now.

And, I understand that most people decorate for Christmas sometime after Thanksgiving day. But I'll be honest, we've had our tree up and this table decorated for Christmas for nearly 2 weeks now.

Pretty cute, right? That's what I thought each time I walked by our dining room table that's set for six. But it seemed as though something was missing. Until today.

Ahh! Much better. Napkins dressed with a napkin ring. I found a similar idea over at Charlotte's and thought it was a grand idea. Here's how it's done.
First, gather paper towel or toilet paper tubes, flatten a little, and cut to your desired size. Then, glue a coordinating paper and ribbon around the tube. Embellish with a button, and wala! Napkin Rings at their easiest.
Now this little crew has plenty to cuddle up with while they're waiting for the three wise men.

How beautiful!
I wish I had a cute little dining room like that. Yours is darling.

Your hair looks great BTW. Are you ok with it lately??

Thank you for the kind words about my grandma. I'm doing pretty good. I know she is with her Savior in heaven. I just am so concerned for my grandpa. He's the one on my mind these days. Thanks again for thinking of me. Hope you had a great Thanksgiving. :)
