DIY flower napkin ring

Now that we're less than a month away from Christmas, I'm starting to think about holiday entertaining and getting rather excited about it (are you?). You know just how much I adore flowers and love incorporating them in my projects...so I cannot actually believe I hadn't thought to do this much earlier! This is seriously the easiest craft idea I've ever shared with you...so much so I'm not even sure this qualifies as craft. To make your own flower napkin rings, you'll need flowers (DUH) and kitchen string. You can use any flowers you like, as long as they're woody but not too brittle. I used pretty crepe myrtle that are flowering in my garden at the moment.

Instructions:

1. Wash and pat dry the flowers.
2. Cut the flowers into 25-28 cm lengths and remove the leaves.
3. Bend the stem to form a circle.
4. Secure the ends with string.

I am so excited about decorating the table for Christmas this year - my first time to host eeeek!
I love this idea so simple and pretty much free, they really are the best ways to decorate I think :) If only I could grow something other than weeds in my garden :(
