Make These Easy Tassel Napkin Rings for a Boho Chic Table

I love the bohemian appeal of a tassel—they’re sumptuous and a little messy, the sort of thing some wealthy bon vivant would bring back from her travels around the globe. They also happen to be a cinch to make. So naturally I want them as part of my effortlessly chic table. We used jewel-toned embroidery thread in the same color family to make ours, but you can mix as many colors as you like (or keep them monochrome) to suit your décor. Go on, impress everyone with your worldliness!

  • Choose three colors of embroidery floss per napkin ring, two for the tassel and one for the tie.
  • Cut a length of floss about 3 feet to use for tie.
  • Using one whole skein of floss (do not unwind!), cut through both looped ends of each skein of floss to get many short pieces of embroidery floss. Repeat with the second skein of floss.
  • Group cut lengths of floss together and fold in half; you’ll have one looped end and one loose end.
  • Using the 3ft piece of floss wrap the folded bunch of floss starting about 3⁄4” from the looped end, making sure to leave extra floss for tie.
  • Trim ends of tassel and tie around napkin trimming any excess floss.

Nine years ago, I made a vow to live my life based on three guiding principles: Love, Awe and Gratitude. Today, instead of feeling sad, angry or anxious about The Chew’s cancellation, I will look through the lens of Gratitude and thank: My cohosts, @chefsymon and @carlaphall, for being two of the greatest people I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. The crew and staff of The Chew for being so dedicated, hardworking and collaborative. Our viewers for allowing us into your homes each day to share a laugh and a recipe — and a cocktail. It’s been a fun run and I am so freakin’ lucky to have been a part of it. Much love, CK ❤️

This photo was taken the day my mom brought me back to the US from Panama, where I was born. She had jet-black hair and a tan, whereas I was basically translucent, with white hair and big blue eyes. Security guards stopped her in the airport because they thought she was smuggling someone else’s baby out of the country. So, I guess it’s time for everyone to come clean. I was indeed stolen. I am actually a Norwegian prince. Where’s my 👑, Terri?!?! Where. Is. My. #%^*ing. 👑?!? 🤪 Happy Mother’s Day!!! I love you. Sorry I’m so weird. ❤️
