Holly Napkin Rings

Added Dec 13, 2011

My daughter and her husband are hosting our family Christmas dinner this year and besides the Christmas pudding and Noel Log cake that I will be making for the dinner, I wanted to give them something for the table decoration. i found the free pattern for these napkin rings on the American Better Homes and Garden web site. www.bhg.com
They are made with felt and ribbon and the berries are large red beads. The pattern used lovely little red bells but I was not able to find any in my craft shop. They require just a small amount of hand sewing and can be done in a day.

This is the direct link to the free pattern. http://www.bhg.com/christmas/indoor-decorating/festive-holiday-napkin-ideas/?rb=Y#page=7

Material Notes

Synthetic felt, cotton grosgrain ribbon and large red beads.

      Thank you and I wish you and your family a Merry Christmas too. I will be down at Main Beach for several weeks so I will be doing the rounds of the coast’s fabric shops and markets.

      Thank-you and a very Merry Christmas to you too. Hope your air-conditioning works well!! I thought of you the other night as I went to the movies and it was freezing!! I could have done with your lovely coat. I went to see ‘The Ides of March’; it was brilliant.

      Funny you should write that because my nickname with my friends is Martha Stewart. And I am a bit of a Martha fan and have made a few of her online projects and recipes. Keeps me out of trouble!!!

      Hi Gabriele, I have just added the direct link to the free pattern. bhg.com email me everyday with lovely ideas depending on the season or holiday. I made 8 napkin rings and it really didn’t take that long, especially since I had most of the materials in my craft cupboard. Have fun making them.
