Carrot Shaped Napkin & Silverware Bundles: With Buttons!
Carrot Shaped Napkin & Silverware Bundles: With Buttons!Today my dental hygienist passed on a black & white “Pinterest Printout” to me (so who doesn’t Pinterest?). So of course after I left the dentist I went straight (well, in a MANNER of speaking) to the store to buy some orange napkins and green plastic silverware to make the project.
As soon as I got home I sat down and pulled up Pinterest to find the directions. A few clicks and I found myself at a new-to-me blog: Suburban Euphoria by Erin.
She starts off her post on these carrot shaped napkin and silverware bundles with a challenge to search Google images and see if her version isn’t the cutest around (she even offered to wait)!
So I took her up on her challenge! There are so many different ways you can make these. They really dress up the table and also look great is a basket on the buffet table. Really combines usefulness and beauty.
So, what was my opinion after taking the challenge? Erin is RIGHT, her carrots with a little something extra really pop!
So I set out to make some of my very own. I quickly located some green chenille stems (mine were plain) but unlike Erin I didn’t have a handy basement with a stash of green tissue paper on hand but I did have some green t-shirt material cut into strips with pinking shears and some green netting not to mention lots & lots of green buttons!
There are lots of photo tutorials on wrapping the treasures and Erin does such a great job of showing you how to wrap the utensils with a napkin that I simply just do not need to do so again.
Here are a few photos of some other things you can do after the silverware bundles are wrapped.
So, now that you know how to, what are you waiting for? Christmas??
Thank you for reading my post. I hope you enjoyed the tutorial. If you have any questions or something is not clear, please let me know so that I can improve the tutorial.
