Dotty napkin rings

Create a set of lovely pink napkin rings with FAY&MAMIE’s MIDDAG* napkin ring kit. No sewing required! All you do is cut the ribbon in four even lengths and ‘fuse’ the ends together using the especially made fabric tape.


Here is a quick video showing you how easy the kit is to assemble:

Vintage glasses salmon and blue colours floral wine glass

Use colourful vintage glassware

A great way to add a bit of colour to your table is by using colourful vintage glassware – a lovely and typically cheap alternative to setting the table using new tableware.

 
Blue hand painted candles with clouds

Cloudy candles

Get a hold of some blue candles and paint them with cloudy patterns, this is easily done using a small round stamp rather than attempting to paint on the candle using a brush.


You'll need:

  • 2-4 blue candles

  • Cream or white coloured non-toxic acrylic paint

  • Small, round stamp (approximately 5mm in diameter)

Instead of sourcing the materials yourself, consider purchasing FAY&MAMIE’s LYS* paint candles DIY kit.


What to do: See FAY&MAMIE's painted candles LYS kit how to guide:

*Candle or light in Danish.

Fuzzy table runner

Create a lovely wrinkly and fuzzy looking table runner with a piece of fabric.


You’ll need:

  • A piece of fabric

  • Seersucker fabric is particularly good for creating a fuzzy-fluffy effect

  • Scissors

  • Optional: Sewing machine & thread in matching colour

What to do

  • With the scissors, cut fabric so it approximately measures the length of your table x 1/3 of the width of your table

Tip: simply lay the fabric on the table and measure it that way!

  • Optional: finish off the edges with a zigzag stitch using your sewing machine.

 
do-it-yourself black and white ceramic beads candle ring

Dotty candle rings

Give your candle holders a makeover by adding some dotted candle rings made with large beads.


You’ll need:

  • Beads

  • How many? The number of beads needed, depends on the size of the beads; in this guide, seven beads measuring 1.5cm in width are used for each candle ring.

  • Thread

  • Preferably the same colours as the beads

  • Approximately 20cm per candle ring

  • Needle

  • Scissors

What to do:

  • STEP 1 Cut a 20cm string

  • STEP 2 Thread needle and add seven beads to string

  • STEP 3 Tie a knot while holding the string of beads up ensuring no gaps between beads

  • STEP 4 Tie one more knot to tighten

  • STEP 5 Cut off excess string

  • STEP 6 To hide knot, gently push neighbouring bead over knot. ​

Finished!


Have fun creating a dotty, fuzzy, cloudy garden party table!
