Fourth of July Napkin Ties


You can never have too many stars and stripes on your Fourth of July table, right? These cute napkin ties are a great project for using up stash from your craft closet. They're easy to stitch from felt, ribbon, and buttons.


For each napkin ring, cut three different size stars from red, white, and blue felt. The stars I used are 4 inches, 3 inches, and 2 inches wide. (Cut out two of the large star so you have one for the backing.) Use two strands of matching embroidery floss and running stitch to sew the small star to the middle star. Sew a button to the center of the small star, and then sew the appliqued middle star to the large star. To make the tie, center a 24-inch piece of ribbon over the backing star. Pin the appliqued star to the backing star, sandwiching the ribbon between. Stitch the two large stars together with running stitch, being careful to secure the ribbon in place. 


Repeat the process until you have enough napkin ties for all of your Fourth of July guests.
