Materials List

  • Hot glue sticks and glue gun
  • Leaf silicone molds that can withstand heat of at least 450 degrees
  • Twine
  • Paint


  1. While your glue gun is heating up, cut pieces of twine large enough to wrap around your napkins several times.

  2. Squeeze hot glue into the silicone candy molds. When it's about halfway full, dip the center of your twine piece into the center of the mold, let it set, and then add more glue to top it off, holding the twine strings up and out of the way.

  3. Let the glue cool about twenty minutes, then pop it out. 

  4. Paint it to match your table decor, or you could use colored hot glue if you like!

  5. When you're ready, wrap the twine around your napkin and tie it. You're ready to set your Thanksgiving table!

Wow, I never thought of using hot glue in this way but I can see where it would set up,into,the shape as needed and would be fun to do as long as you are careful. Another option would be to make the twine looped over, and just glue in the loose ended side, and when completed the looped portion could go over the leaf just like a looped button would be. This looks like such a fun project and is very clever and creative and thanks for sharing!
