I always like to get things ready ahead of time so on the day of the party it's not as rushed as it could be.
I like to put all the napkins and utensils together and I always use a napkin ring to do so.
I love this one! If I was doing an adult party I think I would have spent the money to get these. I find them rather classy.
But, since it's a kids party and we are going to have about 24 kids I didn't want to spend a lot of money. Therefore, these great napkin rings had to be passed up.
I found these great skull heads but again...way to much money to spend for this party.
My search lead me to this one. It cost less then the other two but still it was more then I wanted to spend. So I continued to look.
I saw this idea and thought, I could make these. I could just get some skull beads and add them to wire or string.
Then I added up how many beads I would need and the cost once again went up pretty high.
Oh why are napkin rings so costly?
I knew I wanted something cute. Something that only cost a little bit of money. Something that was not just paper or ribbon. Something that could be used again or at least taken by the kids to enjoy later.
Then I came across these. The cost was good. They would last for more then one use or the kids could take them home.
I was sold! Yes, I know these are not napkin rings and the package says garland but with a little bit of time they would be prefect.
There were 6 skeletons per garland and they were tied with the perfect string!
I also kept the string.
I tied the string around the center of the skeleton.
Then put the eating utensils inside the napkin and folded the napkin. I tied the skeleton around the napkin and was set.
I just did one with a white napkin so you could see it better. Pretty cute huh?
They are just tied in the back of the napkin with a simple knot. How easy is that?
So, for about 60 cents each I have a cute napkin ring that I can either use again or I can let the kids take home to play with.
