I like to create new things with items that I already have on hand. A few years back while I was decorating for patriotic holidays (Memorial Day, Flag Day, 4th of July) I wanted to add a touch to my dining table and make it useful.
I had a basket with red and blue weaving through it. I had red and blue cloth napkins. Heck, I even had patriotic garland so I was set!
I took each napkin and grabbed it in the center and pulled it loosely together.
I then used the patriotic garland and placed it around the center of each napkin and twisted it once in the middle. I used 4 red napkins and 4 blue.
I also added in some cute red, white, and blue kitchen towels.
I added them all to my basket, added in a few more pieces of garland and placed the basket on my table.
A creative and useful piece of decor!
Thanks for stopping by today!
