The matching napkin rings carry on the theme of beautiful colors. For step by step pictures and source check out Martha Stewart.com.

 

How to Make the Pom-Poms
You’ll need tissue paper and 24-gauge white cloth-covered floral wire.

 

Hanging Pom-Poms
1. Stack eight 20-by-30-inch sheets of tissue. Make 1 1/2-inchwide accordion folds, creasing with each fold.

 

2. Fold an 18-inch piece of floral wire in half, and slip over center of folded tissue; twist. With scissors, trim ends of tissue into rounded or pointy shapes.

 

3. Separate layers, pulling away from center one at a time.

 

4. Tie a length of monofilament to floral wire for hanging.

 

Napkin Rings
With just a few changes, these follow the same steps as the hanging pom-poms.

 

1. Stack four sheets of tissue. Cut a 10-by-5-inch rectangle, going through all layers. Make 3/8-inch-wide accordion folds.

 

2. Fold an 18-inch piece of floral wire in half, slip over center of tissue, and twist to secure. Trim ends of tissue.

 

3. Separate layers, pulling away from center one at a time.

 

4. Bend wire into a loop to fit around napkin, and twist end around loop to secure.
