Every woman dreams a clean organised house, we spend so much time cleaning and organizing our households, we keep buying stuff, sometimes they go unused. Have thought we can save so much money if we try some DIY at home.
Today I will be sharing one DIY idea that I used to make napkin holder. I love , making mini motifs and have plenty of them, I use them as coasters most of the time but today I will put it in use to make a napkin holder.
For the napkin holder, I have used stash yarn and old metal bangle (size is 2.6 inches in diameter). For the mini motif I have used #20 thread, and of the holder worsted yarn. The dolly and the holder are made separate and sewed together.
This is a nice alternative to traditional towel toppers; these also make lovely decors for your kitchen or bathrooms.
Skill level required is basic, any kind of yarn can be used to make the napkin holder.
