Instructions
1. Cut the heads off the handles of six spoons. Arrange the heads in a circle to form a flower shape.
2. Put a dollop of hot glue at the base of a spoon head, then press a gold button on top. Continue gluing the heads to the back of the button until you have a flower. The spoons may have to overlap slightly for all of them to fit. Allow the glue to dry.
3. Put a dollop of hot glue on the bottom of the flower. Press it into the side of the wooden ring. Allow the glue to dry.
4. Your napkin ring is complete! Slide it over a rolled-up cloth napkin and place it on top of a plate. Enjoy!
