DIY Projects

 

Bunny Napkin Decoration

  1. Add the napkin weight to a triangle. The important thing is that the two tips on the sides are even, the one in the middle is not as important.
  2. Roll right against the long side.
  3. Fold, put an egg in the middle and tie a strap just above the egg.
  4. Draw your face, if any. Or maybe write a name?
