Shell napkin rings

I bought these place mats at the thrift store
and there was a woven flower on the side.

After the flower was unwoven, I ironed out the braided basket material. Does that make sense?

Then I cut it into pieces and hot glued them together.
The plastic bumpy part is on my ironing board pad for the iron to sit on -because it can handle heat, I hot glued on this.
My husband brought a bag of smaller size shells home to me last year, I finally decided to use them!
 I tried to hide the edge, then I glued the shells to the ring.
On the plate.

Ready for their close up shot.

Ready for dinner.
