Fancy napkins meet industrial napkin rings. Happy newlyweds!
Old keys, vintage drawer label holders, white burlap, floral wire, and Gorilla Super Glue came to my rescue.
First I laid out a piece of burlap, applied Gorilla Super Glue to back of label holders, and placed them on the burlap. Note...do not lay on carpet of hotel room floor for reasons that became clear to me after doing so. Ah, hahahaha! Ater the glue is dry trim the burlap around label holders.
Using Gorilla Super Glue attach keys to label holders.
Florist wire is perfect for wrapping around the napkins. Stick ends of the wire through the holes at the sides of the label holders. The curly cues are accomplished by using a needle nose pliers. The end.

I needed to come up with some cute and clever napkin rings on the spot. So I went to my junk pile and this is what I came up with!

Did you make this?
After you make it, show it off to other members in the Member Junk area.
