Sand Dollar Napkin Rings

I am going through my coastal decor phase, so I have been creating a few accent pieces for my home. Here is the first of my creation - they are napkin rings embellished with sand dollars.

I used strips of vinyl shelf lining, silk ribbon, some glue and of course, sand dollar. sand dollar1 Here is how I made them. I cut 4 strips of vinyl  - 12 inches x 2 inches. Curl the vinyl around to form a cylinder/tube (circle). Secure the ends with some quick setting clue like hot glue. Alternatively, you may use the inner tube from a roll of paper towel. Once the rings are created, I used some 7mm silk ribbon I had left over from another project to wrap around the vinyl rings completely covering them. I secured the ribbon with glue, then I glued the sand dollar to complete my project.

I used 3 glass globes from the dollar store, some beach sand some shells and some star fishes. I live 2 blocks from the beach, so collecting the items for my table scape was easy. But, you may purchase shells and other nautical supplies at most discount and craft stores.

What do you think - nautical or nice?;}
