Styled Christmas Tree Napkin Holder

Bring the tree to the table by making this napkin holder for Christmas dinner.

What You Need:

  • 1 yard of cotton cording (3/16-inch size)
  • 1 yard of 20-gauge crafts wire
  • 1-inch-wide strips of cotton fabric, cut with pinking shears
  • Fabrics glue
  • Decorative button, bead, or bell

How to Make It:

  1. Holding cording and wire together, wrap fabric strips around them tightly. Glue fabric around the cording at the ends. Starting at the bottom, lay a 3-1/2-inch-long strip of wrapped cording flat--to serve as the back support of the tree shape.
  2. Make a bend in the length of cording for a small loop at the top of the tree and continue to loop the wrapped cording around, back and forth, making increasingly larger loops for the tree shape and crossing over the back vertical length of the cording.
  3. End with a 2-inch-diameter circle at the bottom. Work the end of the wrapped cording into the tree shape. Using fabrics glue, secure the tree loops to the back vertical support, and glue the end in place. Glue a decorative item to the top.
