Patriotic Napkin Rings

I have seen these medallions made from paper and ribbon, but when I saw the chevron printed burlap ribbon, I knew they would look great.  I think they are very "Pottery Barn style" cool!
I am still working on the whole table setting......post later!

 Step 1:
Cut burlap red printed wired ribbon 16 inches long.  Cut down the middle.  Cut a 6 inch piece of the blue and also cut it in half.
 Step 2:
Accordion fold one piece of red and the small piece of blue ribbon back and forth.
 Step 3:
Thread string through the cut edge of all the folds.
 Step 4:
Pull the string tight and tie in a knot.  Cut ends close to the knot.
 Step 5:
Fan out the folds until you have a nice evenly spaced circle.
Step 6:  Hot glue a button to the center.

Step 7: 
These were rings with clips already 
on them that were used to hang curtains.  

Clip on the medallion!
Not only did I make the napkin rings, I also made the napkins!
I used a mitered corner napkin tutorial on Pinterest.

Pottery Barn inspired!  
At the store in Charlotte, they have very large burlap medallions 
hanging over their patriotic themed table setting.
