"Here's a quick little project that you can put together in no time. The napkin rings are simply 6 x 3" punched strips of paper glued together and embellished with a quick homemade flower and button. Then I've wrapped more of the design paper around a tin milk jug, added a punched contrasting strip around the middle along with a Home Sweet Home tag. I made a pretty "platform" for my jug by layering a 12" doily over a 12 x 12" sheet of design paper. Red poppies complete the look and I'm all ready for a fun July 4th get-together! Quick decorating schemes are my thing because I love to cook and when entertaining, I spend my time preparing the food rather than fussing with decorations and such.
Now I have a little secret, I LOVE that tin milk jug and I love to use it for many occasions, sooooo, I glued the paper to itself rather than the jug. That way I can remove the paper and easily change the look of my jug and incorporate it into different decorating schemes." ~Maggi
