What you will need:
Lace, ribbon & embellishments
Ruler or Tape measure
First, cut the waist band off and cut the pockets out of the jeans. When cutting the pockets out, cut around the outside of the pocket so that it's still attached to the back layer of fabric. I'm using a pair of kids jeans this time.
Making the Napkin Ring
To make a napkin ring that snaps together with the jean snap, first cut the waist band in half. I left the belt loops attached. The jeans were one of my sons, so they had tightening straps on the inside of the waistband.
Next, snap the two pieces of the waistband together with the snap and then measure and trim each end of the waistband about 4 inches from the snap.
Next, glue the cut ends of the waistband together. You can glue some ribbon or trim around it for extra security, plus it looks cute!
Next, start gluing the lace and ribbon on the waistband, making sure you go under the belt loops.
When you are done adding trim and lace, glue the belt loops down
Making the silverware holder
The pockets are much easier. Just glue on the lace and trim. At first I was going to sew the lace and trim on, but then I remembered this would sew the pocket closed.
I glued the edge of my lace a little around the back side of the pocket to make it look smooth.
It makes a fun patriotic place setting!
