As I set my table the other day I realized just how boring it was with my folded napkins.
So naturally I start wondering what could I make napkin rings out of other than toilet paper rolls. Naturally I start looking at Pinterest for ideas and this is what I came up with…..
- Wine Corks
- Heavy Wire (I used 16 gauge wire found in the jewelry wire)
- Wire Cutters
- Something solid to wrap your wire around to get the perfect rounded shape. (I used a plastic meat flavor injector from my kitchen)
- Tiny screwdriver to make hole for wire. (I used an eyeglass size screwdriver)
Soak your corks overnight in a glass of water. This will make it easier to stick the screw driver straight in. They can soak until your ready to make them.
Once you wipe the excess water off your corks take your screwdriver and stick in to desired place on corks. Remember your screw driver should not be any wider than your wire. You will not see a hole like you occasionally see with a cork screw. This is good!
Take your wire and wrap it around what ever you have found to get your shape. Wrap the wire until it has the desired look you want. Remember to leave enough room on each end of your wire to stick into the cork. I stuck mine in about an inch on each end.
Cut you wire and place each end into the cork.
Shape your napkins as desired and pull through napkins ring.
