I am running out of cash Bees, but I am trying to think of ways to jazz up our tables. Does anyone have suggestions for inexpensive (I’m talking super cheap) napkins rings? Our colors are fuchsia, orange and spring green. I’ve thought about getting using ribbon, but wondered if anyone had different ideas?

@Birdie Love: I’m a big Dollar Tree kind of person, but they have some pretty artificial flowers right now. If you got the a bunch of them, there are 5 per bunch of so. Snip each flower with the wire stem, then curl it around to create the ring. Hide the end of the wire stem with the artificial leaves.

1.Wallpaper! Go to the home dec store and see if they have a sample book you can have for free or a returned roll in your colors.
Cut strips the length you need and glue the ends together with a glue stick.
2. Here’s another easy idea:

tissue pom pom napkin rings!!
I can’t remember which Bee did them (there was a post about them within the last 2 weeks? I think) …but in any case, Martha Stewart has a tutorial (scroll to the bottom): http://www.marthastewartweddings.com/article/pom-poms-and-luminarias

@julies1949: I second this idea too or you could use scrapbooking paper. Cheap cheap cheap!

Baker’s twine would be cool, or hemp ribbon. A spool is a few bucks and it looks so cool and rustic.
This may not be feasible right now, but you could also tuck a sprig of dried (or fresh!) flowers under the ribbon/ring to jazz it up too. I bought a huge thing of dried lavendar to do something similar with my centerpieces and have a bunch left over, so I use it to decorate and occasionally pull a sprig or two out for fancier dinners.
