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
