Don’t worry, you’re still in the right place! I’ve just taken up residence in Anne Marie’s corner of the internet so she can enjoy some family time! I blog at The Rambling Llama. Feel free to follow along! Today we’re talking about a fun DIY!
————————————————————————————————————————-For as long as I can remember, my Grandmother on my dad’s side of the family has always made these napkin candles for all of our family functions. She taught me how to fold these when I was about 11 years old, and I’ve always remembered how to do it. (Good thing because now if I get to her house early for a family dinner she has me folding the napkins!) Today, I’m going to teach you! Who knows, it could be your fun new family tradition to pass along to your children and grand-children!
What you’ll need
+ square, cloth napkin *
*Grandma always uses cloth napkins and the real silver, so I have no clue if paper napkins work for this
+ these instructions.
[disclaimer: I don’t own cloth napkins, but I do own bandannas so that’s what we used for this!]
Stand everything up vertically
Tuck the tiny corner into the lip of the bottom of the “candle”
I’d love to know if you try this! Let me know how your friends and / or family like it!
Thank you so much, Melissa for helping me out! This is such a fun (and easy!) DIY I cannot wait to try it out with my kids, however I have a feeling that these will become napkin swords instead of candles.
