Thanksgiving napkin rings
I decided to make Thanksgiving napkin rings. After searching all over for rings I could use and not finding any, my husband came up with a good idea for using PVC pipe that you can buy at Lowe's or Home Depot. Its super cheap and you get a long piece of pipe.
I cut the pipe into pieces that fit my orange ribbon so the whole pipe would be covered. I used 2 different ribbons, 2 leaves in slightly different sizes and colors, a pine cone, a hot glue gun and Mod Podge. I had some tiny pine cones I got at my in-laws, that I picked up off the ground that were just the right size.
I bought the ribbons on sale and layered them together to get the look I wanted.
I spread a thin layer of Mod Podge on the pipe and attached my orange ribbon and then my brown ribbon on the top.
After I let the ribbon dry I hot glued on everything else. I cut some more ribbon and twisted the ends together with a twisty tie cut in half. I glued that on, followed by both leaves. Then I covered the ends of the leaves and the twisty tie with the pine cone.
