Button Napkin Rings

Introduction

Call on loose or mismatched buttons to serve as the charming clasps on handmade napkin rings. You'll need shank buttons, which have holes on the back. We used a variety of mother-of-pearl buttons, each about 1 1/2 inches across. Thread a 12-inch length of cording through each shank, and tie its ends in a knot. Secure knot to shank with a needle and thread so that it will stay hidden behind the button. Wrap cording around a folded napkin, looping it back over the button to secure.

    I do weddings a lot, and this the cutist idea. I love buttons, and when I can find them on sale, like in grabbags, I buy then by the bunch. I use them for a lot of differents things.

    This is a pretty way to dress up the table. You can use this at any time, which is great.
