Easy and Inexpensive Napkin Ring Options

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.

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.
