Fun New Craft Supplies

As the new year begins, I am planning my new tassel projects for this year. I went to the craft store today and bought some supplies for some beautiful art tassels.

Tassel Craft SuppliesThese are going to be bigger and better tassels like you’ve never seen before! Stay tuned for the results in a few months. (And, if it all works out right, I’m going to be making a line of tassel centerpieces based on these, too!)

Help me find a craft supply!

Help! Last summer, I bought some fabric-covered napkin rings at a garage sale. I (with a friend’s help) took the fabric off, and inside were plastic rings that open and close, kind of like a shower curtain ring. I would like to recover the rings with new fabric (with more help from my patient friend — can you tell I don’t sew very much?) and make more napkin rings, as well. The ultimate goal here is to be able to add tassels to these fabric-covered napkin rings and sell tassel napkin rings in my Etsy store. But I have a problem.

I only bought 8 napkin rings. So I only have one set of napkin rings to recover. (And to make matters even worse, when I took one of the napkin rings to a craft store to see if they sold something similar, the employee helping me managed to break that ring. So I actually only have 7 rings.)

Photo of a napkin ring that opens

This is a photo of what I am looking for: a napkin ring form that opens and closes? Do you know where I can find one?

I am absolutely positive that somewhere in the world, napkin rings that open and close and can be covered by fabric are being sold. (Besides at random garage sales in my city.) However, I cannot find that place. I have looked extensively online, I visited 2 craft stores and 1 big box store, and I cannot find them.

If you know where I can buy these, please tell me in the comments or email me. Thank you. {No spam, please. Serious comments only.}

I am willing to order online, both in the US and internationally. I am also willing to shop locally. I would like to spend no more than 50 cents to 1 dollar per ring, plus shipping. But I am willing to spend more, if necessary.

Tuesday Treasure: Purple Flower Beaded Tassel

Purple Flower Beaded Tassel

This is a gorgeous tassel. It’s that simple. Seven inches of purple thread with 3 long fringes of beaded flowers, you won’t believe your eyes. I entered it in the Eastern Idaho Regional State Fair, and it won 2nd place! Now it can be yours.


Tuesday Treasure: Tassels for Kids

Back to school time is here! Get something special for your child’s backpack or coat this year: a bright colored tassel! These tassels are made entirely with child-safe materials, and will withstand everything your child can throw at them — they are child-tested and washing machine safe!

Friday Feature: MissTanDesigns

It has been a very long time (almost 6 months) since I did a Friday Feature. I decided to kick the series off by revisiting an Etsy store that I first visited when I first started this series, back in 2010. MissTanDesigns has come a long way since that last feature.

Check out some of her new necklaces:

Tuesday Treasure: Pastel Keyring Set

It’s summertime, but fall and back to school time will be here before you know it! Take advantage of the slower days of summer and do some organizing. Somewhere in your house, you’ve got a collection of keys for different locks in the house. I know I do. Instead of having them just lying around, get them organized with a keychain set. Each keyring in the set is a different color, so you can color-code which key goes where.
