Country Christmas Napkin Rings
Artwork and Blogpost by Natalie Parish, Bag End Studio QLD
Christmas can be a time for over consumption rather than contemplation. However, being crafty can give you that time and space to look at Christmas creatively. It is a tradition in my family to exchange gifts that are handmade, second-hand and this year we added bush gifts from drought and fire effected areas. So, I am going for a Country Christmas theme
Dinner is at my house this year, so to tie in my theme I decided to rehash an old napkin ring idea to make table decorations. Determined not to go to the shops, I rummaged through my useful box and craft stash to use up bits I already had. That’s what I love about the Powertex universal medium and stone art – its ability to help you create assemblage art out of found objects, off-cuts, or bits from the backyard. that at first glance to anyone else may simply look like rubbish.
Keep in mind, except for the PTX universal medium, everything is optional depending on the style you wish to create and what you have at home. I love to use the stone art as it speeds up the attachment process.
