Many artificial tabletop trees are sold with replacement branches. Use scissors to cut the branches into 4-inch strips, then wrap them around napkins. For embellishments, add jingle bells to the branches with twine.
Search the crafts section for chalkboard paper or card stock. To outfit them as napkin rings, cut into 3-inch-long strips, then make 1-inch slits with scissors. Wrap the paper around the napkin and secure it in place by tying ribbon through the slit.
Bailing wire, found in most home improvement sections, is used for hanging or securing objects in place. Add a touch of industrial style to your table by unfurling bailing wire from its spool, then winding it into a 2-inch-wide cylindrical shape.
Don't let holiday gift wrap tubes go to waste. Use a utility knife to cut the tubes into 3-inch-long sections. Choose colorful materials to wrap around the tubes to create pattern and introduce texture. Here, a variety of string in purple tones was used to keep the napkin ring coordinated with the rest of the tablescape.
