Golden Menagerie Part 1~*

Remember my golden menagerie?

I purchased the animals from Amazon, here.  I've seen the painting done on other blogs with spray paint, but I hand painted them to get the brushed effect.  
Now for the first craft with 'em: napkin rings!
I bought some wired velvet ribbon at Michaels and some cloth napkins for our big dinner party tomorrow night.  The rest is pretty obvious:

I alternated between the red & green accent ribbons to make the place settings visually interesting.

The I just attached the animals with hot glue & voila!  Our table only sits 6, so I'm going to make the table up accordingly.  For the remainder of the napkins {we have 15 people coming all together...yeah, lots of floor sitting I'm afraid lol} I used a patterned ribbon & kept it simple to make them easier to hang on to.

I'll post the 2nd golden menagerie craft later!
