A Thrifty Way to Add Bling to your Table!

I love to add the special little touches to a pretty table. But, generally those "touches' are on the pricey side! However, this quick and easy idea will only cost about $1.00 for 4 pretty beaded napkin rings and a few beaded candle holder bling!

Here is what you need:

1 - package of beaded ribbon fringe - bought at the dollar store (it is 36 inches long)

1 - package of sticky back velcro. If you don't have that but have some regular velcro, no big deal. Just use a little glue on the back.

You will need your scissors and napkins and candle holders (to measure size)

That's it!

Measure out about 4" of the beaded ribbon and cut. Then grab a piece of velcro and cut it into a smaller pieces. I had this velcro that was in circles and squares. I just grabbed one of the circles and cut it into 4 small pieces. Make sure you cut both sides of the velcro. See, I told you, you need very little for this project.

Now stick one side of the cut piece of velcro to one end of the ribbon and then take the other piece and stick it at the other end, on the backside.

That's it! Now just wrap the ribbon around your napkin and Ta Da!

As for the candle holder, just measure how much you need and do the same thing as above.

Quick, inexpensive and super easy. This only takes a few minutes to do. You could do it right before you set the table and it wouldn't take long. The Dollar stores have dozens of different beaded ribbons. I found mine at The Dollar Tree. There is so much you can do with this beaded ribbon and some velcro. You can snazz up a lot of different things!

If you want to customize this it would be easy but, more time. Just grab whatever ribbon you have or find and then some beads and sew strands onto the ribbon. But, for quick, cheap and easy, you can't beat the dollar store beaded trim!
