Hi there!! I’m currently working on a summer tablescape and as I was putting things together I was trying to choose a napkin ‘ring’ option. I realized that I own ZERO real napkin rings. Everything that I have or that I have used are inexpensive alternatives because I honestly can’t afford new real napkin rings every time I want to set the table, and honestly I like my alternatives better. 😉 So, I thought you might be interested in seeing some of the things I have used over the years! Many may not be new to you, but maybe just one will spark your creativity!
It all started really with this cute paper tape I found in the target dollar spot, and a paper towel tube.
I cut the paper towel tube in four pieces and started wrapping each piece with the tape in strips.
And just a few minutes longer I had these.
Aren’t they cute??
Here are some other easy options that you can DIY with things you might even have at home in your craft stash. (everyone has a craft stash right??)
Jute wrapped around a few times and tied.
Cut a flower stem and create a ring.
This tinsel garland is fun and festive.
And easy to wrap around to make a sparkly ‘ring’.
These mini grapevine wreaths have been a favorite of mine for a long time. You can usually find them at Christmas time for half off!! Stock up to use year around.
I hope you took away at least one new idea!! Haven’t set a pretty table in a while? Do it tonight!! You don’t need a special occasion! Everyday is a blessing and a gift.
