DIY Friday: Tissue Paper Napkin Ring

Today we have more reception decor to go along with the tissue paper pom poms .The tissue paper napkin rings, from Martha Stewart, are really simple and look supper cute with any table decor. 

Supplies: Tissue paper, scissor, floral wire- 22 gauge, and a ruler.

1. Take on piece of tissue paper and fold it in half twice. This will allow you to have four layers.
2. Cut a 10 by 5 inch rectangular through all the layers.
3. Make 3/8 inch wide accordion folds (the tissue paper should be folded so that it is narrow, not the long way).
4. Fold an 18 inch piece of floral wire in half (depending on the thickness of your napkin you may  be able to do just a 10 inch piece of floral wire). Slip the wire over the center of the tissue paper and twist to secure.
5. Trim the ends  of the tissue paper into round or point shape.
6. Separate the layers, pulling away from the center one at a time.
7. Bend the wire into a loop to fit around the napkin, twist the end to secure (if you want the napkin to slip out of the napkin ring for your guests, make sure it is a little loose).

You should be able to get two napkin rings out of one piece of tissue paper.
