If you are unable to be with family this Thanksgiving, these would be sweet tied together with raffia and a card and mailed to your family to use for Thanksgiving. It will be a reminder at their dinner that you are thinking of them and wish you could be there, too.
- Christmas - Trade the autumn-colored, natural-textured beads for sparkling, Christmas-colored ones and let your child go Christmas crazy.
- Table Decoration - Instead of forming napkin rings, create one really long strand to wind around the yummy food dishes at your holiday table.
- Bracelets - Instead of using raffia to string the beads, use stretchy string to make bracelets.
- Place Cards - The napkin rings can do double-duty as place cards. Write each guest's name on appropriately colored heavy paper and attach each one to a napkin ring with raffia or ribbon.
