Pots to Napkin Rings

Just a quick post regarding these little gems. 

Idea, to make these into napkin rings and I had the perfect person to make them for, Gail.


My handyman John, stepped up and using his Dremal tool he cut these openings for a napkin to fit.


A dry brushing with Old Ochre ASCP with a light sanding sponge.


Filled four with green napkins one of Gail’s favorite colors and done.  NOTE:  You may notice that pretty stained table they are on.  My handyman made me a beauty of a craft table for my office.  Sharing very soon.

French décor is a favorite, along with my passion for painting furniture. I love upcycling and giving pieces new life in my home. As I love to Cook and Bake, sharing a favorite recipe happens here too.

  1. This answers some questions for me. I saw something similar on Pinterest a few years ago, but when I found he pots at Michael’s, I knew I could never get a napkin through the hole. Now I understand.

  2. Those are so cute! I never would’ve thought to make them into napkin rings. The extra bit of paint on them gives them an antique look. Your friend Gail will love them.

  3. Cynthia, I love this idea! I just asked hubby if he had a dremmel tool and he said, yes. Yahoo! I am so going to do this for when I set my table with a garden theme. Thanks for the inspiration friend!

  4. that is adorable! i think a tablescape is in order. would love to use something like this at a shower.

  5. This is such a clever idea! You did a wonderful job of ageing them and the napkins coordinate beautifully. I have a dremel tool gathering dust in my basement (my only “power tool”), so am thinking I might just try this myself 😉
