Thrifty Christmas Napkin Rings

I was looking in the store today at various napkin rings to decorate my table on Christmas day and was appalled to find them priced at about $3 each. Multiply that out and it's just too much for my budget. So, my thrifty side kicked in and I went on a hunt for the fixings to make my own at an affordable price. Here are my results. I'm not going to give a step by step. It's so easy even a cave man can make these.

Start with a holiday themed garland, $5 at Walmart. Add a pouch of raffia for $1.50.

Tie together 3 pieces with raffia.

Add a ring.

Tuck napkin inside ring. Viola! Napkin ring! I could make about 2 dozen of these and the price was $6. Anybody else have any thrifty ideas for decorating?
