These napkin rings are super simple to make and look so luxe. With air dry clay, there is no need to fuss with the oven so it’s so easy to create the pretzel shapes. They mingle well with other gold or brass items to create a sophisticated holiday tablescape.

Matisse Inspired Autumn Mobile

by Ashley Page Norton 

I recently saw the Matisse cut outs show at the Met, and it was definitely inspirational. This simple mobile is reminiscent of the shapes Matisse used, but more directly taken from fall leaves. The warm metallics and wood tones will look beautiful over your Thanksgiving table, or just hanging around the house as the season changes.

Gumdrop Acorn Napkin Rings DIY

by Chiara Alberetti Milott

These pretty gumdrop acorn napkin rings are very easy and fun to make. Once you start, you will want to keep making them! Mix in any extras with other seasonal nuts or fruits as a colorful centerpiece. Warn your guests not to nibble them, or they might eat some glue. And of course, keep them well out of reach of small children. If you want, use pom-poms to make a kid-friendly version (see last pair of photos). In fact – just swap the hot-glue gun for Elmer’s or craft glue, and this would be a great craft project for kids to do too.
