Button napkin rings
Mismatched buttons make lovely Shabby Chic handmade napkin rings.
You'll need shank buttons, which have holes on the back. I like mother-of-pearl buttons, each about 1 1/2 inches across.
Thread a 12-inch length of cording through each shank, and tie its ends in a knot.
Secure knot to shank with a needle and thread so that it will stay hidden behind the button.
Wrap cording around a folded napkin, looping it back over the button to secure
