Crochet Tutorial: Bows and Bells Napkin Rings

Our first crochet project in the 12 Days of Christmas, starts with this Bows and Bells Napkin Rings! This project takes a common household item and transforms it to make these lovely tabletop decorations.

These napkin rings use an every day household item that usually gets tossed in the trash or recycled. This project is a great way to reduce waste and reuse your tissue paper rolls!

While I was experimenting and playing around with the napkin ring, I noticed a flame-less tea-light candle fit inside the ring perfectly! ((Disclaimer: DO NOT USE OR LIGHT A REAL CANDLE WITH THIS PIECE)) Sitting on the side of a shelf, this looks very festive!

Crochet Tutorial: The Joyful Teapot Cozy

Crochet Tutorial: The Joyful Teapot Cozy

Holiday entertaining is right around the corner. I personally enjoy tea with friends. Add a special touch to your table setting with The Joyful Teapot Cozy!

teapot3
I added the word “Joy” to my teapot, but you can add any word. It’s very simple to chain and sew it onto the cozy. You don’t have to use holly leaves and berries as your embellishments either. Have fun with it and get creative by adding flowers, leaves, or other appliqués to make your teapot cozy personal.

The Joyful Teapot Cozy makes a lovely gift idea. Wrapped around a vintage teapot and filled with specialty teas, this would go far in making someone’s holiday tea-rrific!

Now it’s time to pour yourself a cup of hot tea, pull out your hook and get started today!
