D.I.Y Friday~Button Napkin Rings

>> Friday, October 24, 2008

I'm so going to make these for my wedding! What a classy but cheap way to have nice napkin rings! These are just way too cute to ignore! I was searching one of my favorite wedding sites:
Once Wed and found these little gems, I love 'em.

Fabric ( a 2” x 2” scrap for each button)
Cover Buttons ( 1 ½” in diameter, one per napkin ring)
Ribbon ( 6” length per ring, 1” wide)


Fabric: “Leaf Honeycomb” by Joelle Hoverson and Moda “Green ButterflyLace” available at Purlsoho.comAll other supplies available and fabric and craft stores.

1. Begin by ironing your fabric so it’s free of wrinkles. Follow theinstructions on the cover button package to create your buttons. Thereare several styles of cover buttons. With all, you’ll be cutting acircle of your fabric with their template, stretching the fabric over thetop of the button, then snapping the back on the button. ( see figure 1and 2)
2. Cut a length of ribbon 6 inches long. Run the ribbon through themetal loop on the back, so the finished button is centered on theribbon with the right side of the ribbon facing up. (see figure 3)
3. Pull the ends of the ribbon up so the right sides meet. The buttonwill be inside, facing up towards the ribbon ends. (see figure 4)
4. Approximately 1/4 of an inch from the ribbon edges, do a straightstitch to close the “ring”. Tie off your thread with a sturdy knot.Trim away loose threads. (see figure 5)
5. Turn the ring you just created right side out, so the button is ontop. Pull the ribbon through the metal loop of the button until the seamyou just stitched is directly beneath, and hidden by the button. (seefigure 6)
6. Make one napkin ring per guest. Mix and match your fabrics to livenup the tables. ( see figure 7)
7. Fold the napkin in half, roll it, and slide through the ring and place.
