How To Make DIY Napkin Rings

Let’s make DIY napkin rings! Thanksgiving is around the corner. So, I made new napkin rings.

The best part about these DIY napkin rings, they are easy to make. In fact, these can be made in minutes it will amaze you.

First, I began thinking about our Thanksgiving table. Of course, I have napkin rings, however, they have beading on them and aren’t my style anymore.

Second, the beading from the old napkin rings gets everywhere and that drives me crazy. It’s one more thing to clean up and to worry about getting on the floor with our fur babies. Believe it or not, one or two of those beads is asking for a sick tummy, the last thing I need.

So, I remembered, I had bought these seagrass holders. I came up with a simple idea that makes these DIY napkin rings perfect for Thanksgiving.

Also, I think these will work great for Christmas too.

By the way, these seagrass napkin rings can be found HERE.

Items Needed:

  • napkin rings
  • self stick moss
  • acorn caps
  • scissors
  • glue gun and glue sticks

How To Make DIY Napkin Rings

First using a piece of leftover ribbon, I measured the length I’d need to cut my moss for my easy napkin craft idea.

By the way, this is a good time to heat the glue gun.

Next, using a good scissors I cut six strips of moss for my DIY napkin rings. Then, I carefully remove the backing of my first strip of moss. I say carefully because the self stick moss I buy is very sticky.

Next, I added a thin line of hot glue. I did this because, I wanted to make sure the moss will stay put on these napkin project.

Lastly, add a bit of glue to the edge of the acorn tops and attach to the moss for a fall accent. I added three but one looks pretty too.
