Bee Creative. . . Napkin Ring Tutorial.

Although there seems to be no shortage of dishes for tablescaping,
napkin rings On Crooked Creektt are another story all together.

I put together a whimsical tablescape 
using my vintage honey pot collection, bee stemware and plates.

While gathering my black and white check napkins,
my eyes glanced upon the buttery yellow beaded candle/napkin rings.

Inspiration + creativity = bee napkin rings!

By using three elements readily available,
I designed the whimsical bee napkin rings for Tablescaping With The Bees. . .

I gathered together the necessary items:
*the buttery yellow beaded napkin ring
*narrow black and white ribbon
*four bee measuring spoons

I used 1 tsp. and 1/4 tsp. spoons and a 18" length of the striped ribbon.
Squeezing the ribbon together,
I forced it into the opening atop the 1 tsp. and tied a loose knot.
The knot is to keep the two measuring spoons separated, preventing breakage.

I squeezed the ribbon together a second time.
This time I forced the ribbon through the opening in the 1/4 tsp. opening.
By turning the measuring spoon upside down, 
it creates an element of surprise for your guest.

I gently slid the two measuring spoons together.
Wrap the ribbon around the napkin ring and tie in a short fat bow.

Slide your napkin by the corner through the napkin ring opening 
and you have a unique, delightful napkin ring for your dining pleasure.

By repeating the process, I created a second napkin ring.

This time, I used the 1 Tbsp. and the 1/2 tsp. measuring spoons.

Wrap the ribbon around the beaded napkin ring, 
tie in a short fat bow and you've completed the second bee napkin ring.

 Slide the napkin through the napkin ring 
and you're ready to amaze and delight your family and dinner guests!

Very creative. I love that they look like wreaths.


I love bees and your napkin rings are lovely. Thank you for the tutorial.
I also love your table and china dear Pat. Your blog background is also looking a lot like Spring... with the butterflies!
Enjoy your weekend, sweetie.
