Just so you don't think that I am spending all my time making Pesach projects, these super simple napkin rings were made last year. And I had had a baby four weeks prior, so when I say easy, I mean easy like a Duncan Hines brownie, but quicker if you can imagine such a thing. These guys are probably the only thing I actually did do for Pesach last year. I think. I don't remember that much about last year in general, but that's the whole baby-induced amnesia thing.
Anyway, wanna see how easy? I'll show you.
Step one: Go to AC Moore.
Step two: In the woodworking aisle you will find lots of unfinished wood, but don't stop, keep walking and you will find the best thing ever - an entire section of already painted pieces of wood in just about every shape imaginable. Need ballet shoes? They have em. Need a firetruck? You got it! Need a yellow sunflower? In stock, my friend. And if you happen to be me, you will see these frogs and immediately know what you will do with them. Napkin rings, what else? And the best part, none of these lovely little pieces cost more than 99cents. (Also, be sure to stop in the tuille aisle and get a roll of matching green tuille).
Step three: Stop for a Starbucks on the way home (preferably a drive-thru) to celebrate your successful shopping trip.
Step four: Lay out your frogs on the dining room table. Cut lengths of tuille - probably about 10 inches long or so. Hot glue (you must have one of these - if not, please take your coffee and get back in the car and drive back to AC Moore and get yourself one of these handy-dandy tools that no mommy should be without) the center of the tuille to the back of the frog and let dry.
Your fancy cloth napkins for the seder (no really, I have those) will probably still be packed away, so just use a regular (clean) paper one* and tie one of the frog-tuille combos around it just to see how nice it will look. See? And you're done.
What did I tell you? And I'll bet you didn't even finish your coffee yet.
*Full disclosure here: My fancy napkins aren't really pink. I couldn't even find a clean paper napkin in this house to show you so I tied the napkin ring onto the baby's sweatshirt. Pathetic, I know. But it got thejob done.
