Beach Lighthouse Craft Supplies: burlap, red wool felt, hot glue gun

Simple napkin rings: I loved layering up the gingham with the ric rac to make these simple burlap napkin rings. They came together quickly, but add a great touch to a place setting.

1. Cut a 6×1.5" piece of burlap making sure to cut between the threads to reduce fraying. Pull one thread on each side to add just a bit of fray. Cut a 6" piece of gingham ribbon and a 6" piece of ric rac.

2. Layer the burlap and ribbons together and attach with a small amount of hot glue. (You can use other adhesive, but the hot glue will give the ring a bit of shape.)

3. Overlap the edges and add a bit of hot glue to create the circle.

Crab placecard:

1. Cut one sheet of 6×6" paper (I used a burlap patterned one) to 4×4". Fold it in half. Add a name using round alphabet stickers. Add half of a doily sticker. You could also use the Amy Tangerine Filigree circle cut on your silhouette for multiple placecards. Size the crab to about 2.5" and cut from red cardstock.

2. Add the crap to the top edge of the card.
