CELEBRATIONS: Faux Vintage Lace Napkin Rings

Faux Vintage Lace Napkin Rings via homework | carolynshomework.comI mentioned last week that this year, I’m not hosting Thanksgiving at my house (fist bumps everyone)! But when I do have large gatherings, I like to use napkin rings even if I’m not going to use cloth napkins.

Celebrations: spring napkin rings

Pin It


Spring flowers are popping up all over my house 
{unfortunately not in my garden yet}.



Last week I posted about this spring centerpiece that I made out of painted paper napkins. You can see the post here.



I had some leftover painted napkins and made a few more flowers that I used to create these napkin rings.



The rings are made out of floral wire and covered with a green paper napkin and Mod Podge. I used a hot glue gun to adhere the flowers to the wire and covered the flower base with more of the green napkin.



As I mentioned in my original centerpiece post, the napkins are super thin {cheap} which makes them all the more delicate and airy. Great for crafting but not very good for using with a meal.



A trial run place setting for Easter.




Happy Monday everyone. I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.
Thanks for visiting!

Celebrations: black velvet napkin rings


I had a lot of black velvet leftover from my big plan to sell black Halloween pumpkins in my Etsy Shop {not one sold}…


That’s okay – you can use black velvet for a lot of projects. 


First up – black velvet napkin rings. Nothing new about this project. You simply use paper towel tubes and cut them into several short tubes. Wrap your tube with fabric and glue to the inside. 


I tied little ornaments onto the napkin ring with Pearl Cotton embroidery floss. 


I love the crisp white linen against the lush black velvet. 


And it wouldn’t be Christmas without a splash of red poinsettias.

Celebrations: pearl blue napkin rings


Here’s a quick and easy way to add a splash of color and dress up your table.


These pearl blue napkin rings even add a touch of shimmer to everyday white dinnerware and will work in any season.

To make these napkin rings, you’ll need:
  • 1st layer: cut a piece of white cardstock approximately 2” x 6” and paint with Pearl Jet Stream. Let dry and roll into a tube. Secure with a piece of clear tape on the inside.
  • 2nd layer: cut a piece of white cardstock approximately 1-1/2” x 6”. Roll this layer around the blue layer and secure with tape.
  • 3rd layer: wrap a piece of the organdy ribbon around the napkin ring and secure with glue or double side tape.
  • Add a Crystallized Element to the ribbon or paint an embellishment to the white layer with Metallic Sterling paint.


Crisp white linen napkins and shiny silverware add the finishing touches.

Inkling: faux birch napkin rings

I found birch wood clipart on, where else…Martha’s website. You can download it here. There are a lot of craft possibilities with this clipart. I plan to make some fun things with it.
Here’s a quick and easy project that will dress up your table. Birch wood napkin rings.

Just like my Thanksgiving napkin rings, I used paper towel rolls as a base. I printed out the clipart on cardstock and glued it to the roll. Cut them up, added a little décor and voila… holiday napkin rings.

If you’re not planning on using napkin rings for dinner, just slit the rings and string them together. You’ll have a pretty birch wood garland.

Sew and Tell: thanksgiving napkin rings

I haven’t decided how I want my Thanksgiving table to look. Should I go with a more formal look with a white crisp tablecloth or a colorful and casual feel?

I made two sets of napkin rings and I’ll need to decide which ones I’m going to use.

 
For the first set I used a brown pinstripe suiting fabric for a tailored look.

The second more casual set was made with a beige cotton fabric.


Napkin rings are easy to make and can be just the finishing touch for your place settings. All you need are paper towel or bathroom tissue rolls, fabric and embellishments.

  1. Cut your paper towel rolls – I cut mine to 1-1/4”.
  2. Cut out a piece of fabric long enough to wrap around the roll and wide enough to tuck into the inside of the roll.
  3. Mine measured 2-3/4” x 5-1/2”.
  4. Glue your fabric onto the roll with fabric or craft glue. 

Add your embellishments and let dry.


 I still have to decide which set I’m going to use but deciding how to set your table is part of the fun.
