Valentine Napkin Ring
Hi all! I’m going back into my archives to share a Valentine post for the past! I love how I created this lovely Valentine napkin ring out of a garlic bulb stem base. This is a 15-minute project to do so you have time until tomorrow to do it!
Since one of my greatest pleasures is spending lots of time in my cottage kitchen doing what I love, cooking. Being a garlic lover that I am I use garlic in just about everything I cook and have broken apart many garlic bulbs. Garlic is not only essential in my cooking but, also as a decorative element in my Valentine decor….a Valentine Garlic Napkin Ring.
Did you know garlic is part of the allium family and has a history of over 7,000 years, native to Asia and Europe? Not only use for culinary purposes but for its medicinal properties also.
Since it might be hard to believe that this garlic bulb…
Can turn into a pretty Valentine Napkin Ring
The napkin ring was made using the root end of the bulb which is very easy to “break” apart…
Cup your palm over the bulb while stepping up on your toes to lean over the bulb and press down on it. Not hard, the pressure will break it open.
The skins/cloves will naturally separate out…
Among the cloves, you will find the root bottom. Each time a bulb is broken the root ball will break into different shapes…
I liked how each bulb root takes on a different shape since I’m not a matchy kind of gal! Each one has its own natural look to it.
Then flip the root over and hot glued jute to it. You could use yarn or lace too. I thought the twine went with its rustic look.
The napkin ring has a “romantic” look to it.
I made them for our Valentine’s Day tablescape.
