Elegant nakpins with eucalyptus leaves
Good morning new week! I’m exhausted after a family get-together in Germany and would have preferred to stay in bed (and it does not help that it’s a blizzard outside) but Monday is here and it is, after all, my favourite day – and today contains a lot of fun! Among other things, we will fit our wedding rings today followed by lunch together (which rarely happens!). And in the afternoon I will decorate the house for Easter! Festive times are ahead of us!
And for the occasion I wanted to give you a napkin DIY decoration tips; I really love eucalyptus, not only because it’s beautiful, but it’s also a lot of value for money when you can use it fresh as well as dried. Below I show one of my favourite eucalyptus decorations that fits simple evenings as well as for easter. This is how I make my napkin rings with eucalyptus.
You need Linen Napkins, Steel Wires, Eucalyptus Twigs (mine are dry), small wooden stick for stabilisation – you can pick it yourself of purchase it. Mine are from Coop Hobby.
- Fold the linen napkins in the middle (take as a pinch in the middle and let the napkin fold itself)
- Cut approx. 15cm of an eucalyptus twig
- Place the wooden stick in the middle of the napkin and place the eucalyptus twig on top
- Twist the steel wire two turns around the twigs
