Harvest Napkin Ties

Squirrels aren't the only ones who can tap an oak tree's potential. For pretty napkin ties that evoke the harvest season, attach store-bought acorns to satin ribbon.

  • Acorns

  • Awl

  • Craft knife

  • 9-by-1/4-inch brown satin ribbon


  1. If the acorns aren't precut, separate the cap from the body of each acorn with a craft knife.

  2. Make a small hole in cap with an awl. Knot one end of a 9-by-1/4-inch brown satin ribbon. Thread other end through a cap; knot at top.

  3. Thread through another cap; knot on both sides. Reattach bodies.
