I am pleased we are having better weather this week, as having purchased these lovely sailboat napkins earlier in the summer, and with my mind awash with everything ‘boaty’, after a week in Cornwall. I decided to use them to create straw toppers and napkin rings that you can use at your BBQ’s and beach days this week. I have create a trace for the topper, (use the link below to download and printout), and the napkin rings are cut from cardboard toilet tissue inners, wrapped with the plainer parts of the napkin. Even if you don’t shop at the same supermarket as me, you can still make these sailboat bits using plain red and blue napkins, or small bits of tissue or fabric. The straw topper trace can be used for other occasions: trees for Christmas, spiders for Halloween, eggs for Easter and bells or bows for a wedding. Download the trace, and find out how I made these simple straw toppers and napkin rings.
