12 days of Christmas bloghop- day 6

Y'all, I'm starting to think blogger hates my blog.  Most times I post something, I have to do it 2 or 3 times before it takes a hint.  BUT, this is a monumental blog day for me- this is officially my 100th post!  WOOT!

OK, so you're back for another day and I'm so glad you're here!  This is my napkin ring for Christmas.  Yes, it's holding a washcloth only because I haven't sewn any napkins yet, BUT they're coming. :)

Here's what you'll need:
various beads
memory wire
jingle bells (small)
round nose pliers.

crimp one of the ends of the memory wire (I cut it to a length I wanted and was able to get a few out of 1 wire) string beads on in random order.  Tada!  Easy and cute!  I like easy crafts.  I also like pretty and simple.

What is the worst gift you've gotten for Christmas?  Thanks for stopping by and I'll see you tomorrow with another bout of awesome fabulousity!

Here's the lineup in case you get lost:

  1. Hi Heather - these remind me of the wine glass rings my mom created some time ago - your napkin rings are lovely - I enjoy making napkins with my Serger - they whip up fast!

  2. Gorgeous napkin ring! I would have to start the year before. LOL

    My worst gift was from my dear FIL who gave me some cheap cologne. Stunk to high heaven. Having said that, tho, he totally made it up to me the next year by buying me an angel that lights when touched. I never held it against him about the cologne, after that! :-)

  3. What a clever and pretty way to dress up you napkins (or washcloths).

  4. Very cute napkin ring... my worst gift I got......never got one :)

  5. Nice way to dress up napkin, better than most napkin rings. I don't know of any bad gifts. Sometimes when you participate in gift exchanges & then someone can take the gift you had you don't always end up with what originally had or what you'd really like.


  6. I love your napkin ring!! The worst Christmas Present I've ever gotten was a bottle of Bath gel or lotion that just smelled horrible! and it was something that i would never use.

  7. Beautiful napkin rings!

  8. awesome project! I use memory wire a lot in my work. My worst gift ever: meat and I am a 25 year vegetarian!

  9. Love the wired beads and how easy to have for years to come!!

    1. No bad gifts for me for Christmas that I can think of....maybe an iron fireplace gate but we didn't have a real fireplace so had to return it. Had no use for it! Funny that they gave it to me.

  10. Your napkin rings are darling!!!

  11. Super cute!! You are a Jill of all crafts! And a master them too! LOL!

    The worst gift I ever got was this perfume my mother loved. She got a really good deal on it and got all of us girls some. I loved to bottle though!
