Beaded Napkin Rings
Source: Martha Stewart Living, October 2003
Making custom napkin rings for any table setting is a cinch with colorful ribbon and beads. Choose ribbon that suits your dinnerware, linens, and centerpiece. Cut it into 18- to 22-inch lengths; trim the ends on the diagonal. Wrap a length of ribbon around a rolled napkin so the ends meet in front. Thread the ribbon ends through a bead, and pull taut.
