Easy DIY Ribbon Napkin Rings

With Thanksgiving just around the corner, I thought I'd repost a quick tutorial that I did last year for The Creative Patch.

These napkin rings are sooo simple and can be made to match any table setting.

Assorted ribbon, trim, and burlap in coordinating colors.
Buttons, lace/fabric scraps, vintage jewelry, silk flowers, acorns, or other embellishments
Hot glue and glue gun.
Cut ribbon pieces to about 6.5 inches.
Layer ribbon as desired and glue down.  Glue embellishments to center of ribbon.

Flip over ribbons and fold down about 1/2" inch on each end.  Glue in place.  This will help prevent fraying and create a more finished look.  Roll ribbon into rings and glue ends together.
Easy peasy and so pretty!

October Shop Update

So clearly, I'm waaaay behind on this, but the October website update is complete.
Maybe I should just call it an early November update?  LOL.

Some lovely new decorative tapes made of lace, fabric, and washi paper.
New colorful cabochons featuring flowers, owls, birds, and bats.
And some Halloween goodies, perfect for last minute projects!

You can see all of the newbies HERE.

Happy Friday!

Stop the car!

Found this beauty on my way home yesterday.
On the side of the road, with a big FREE sign on it.
It is the most perfect shade of robin's egg blue.

It took major skills to get it in my SUV, but I did it!
I think it will be a great pop of color in my living room.
My husband doesn't think we need a random door hanging out in there.
But, I'm sure YOU get it!  :)

Owl Baby Shower Diaper Cake

I'm hosting a baby shower in a few weeks for a sweet baby-to-be.
The theme is owls, to match her nursery.
I've been busy shopping, planning, and crafting away for the big event.
One of the things that I made is this diaper cake.
I just love that cute owl!
(I found her here.)
I'm having trouble deciding on the final decorations.

Pink flowers with brown leaves....
Or brown coffee filter flowers with pink leaves?
What do you think?
(Sorry for my poor photos... it's been raining here for what seems like weeks!)
I don't think the pink flowers are quite the right shade of pink.
I'm leaning toward the brown flowers, but I think that may be too much brown...
Decisions, decisions...

(The vintage leaves and ribbons are from my shop.)
