Again, I adore all things vintage … especially when things are repurposed into the unexpected, and this cute as a button napkin ring does just the trick! This easy project comes straight from the website of Country Living. Where to find these little cards with buttons still remaining? Try scouring estate sales, thrift stores and antique shops for those little finds.
Armed with your vintage button cards and just a few easy instructions, you are well on your way to having these cuties for your own!
As per the website’s instructions: Choose 2 yards each (per 2 napkins) of 5 colors of silk ribbon; gather into a bunch, cut into 8″ bunches, and knot one end of each. Punch 2 holes in sides of vintage button cards. Pull unknotted ribbon ends up through each hole so knot catches under card. Tie loose ends under napkin. Voila! It is that easy with such cute results. They can also pull double duty as a favor or place card, too.
Thank you again to Country Living for this sweet little idea. Photo credit goes to Susan Gentry McWhinney.
