Junking Makeover: 1950's Paper Napkins

Hi guys, I know you have all been waiting with bated breath to see that wonderful creation I made from the 1950's paper napkins. Well.....I had an idea to make them into a bunting for the kids room....tee-hee...I had you all wondering didn't I? There were 11 in total, the perfect number.

I found these cute plastic mini pegs at Target. They come in four colours: pink, green, blue and purple (12 in each pack).

Miss I chose the peg order and we laid them out above each napkin and string of ribbon. A quick peg and it was ready to hang. I didn't want to make something permanent as I just love the napkins. This way they can be removed without damage when the kids grow out of it.

Miss I painted the portrait of our family...no we really don't look like that! My husband is the one in blue, he thinks he looks like the Jigsaw Puppet Doll from the 'Saw' movies... tee-hee
