I am a linen horder, I admit it. I didn’t realize how much so until we moved and they were all piled in the same place. Let’s just say WHOA. And for every tablecloth, there are all sorts of napkins to go with them. Napkin rings I love just as much as the linens–they are like putting on a great statement necklace with a pretty dress.
At Maddie’s first communion party, the lacey napkins were accented with simple paper flower napkin rings that were a snap to put together! Read on to see how.
- Hydrangea punch
- Two slightly different shades of lavender scrapbook paper
- Stick on gems
- WIred Sisal Rope
- Satin lavender ribbon
Using your handy dandy hydrangea punch, punch out a dozen flower petal shapes. I use two different shades of lavender to give them a little more texture and interest when they’re done.
From there, you just have to layer and glue two of the petal shapes together, pop a rhinestone or pearl in the center and bend up the edges of your petals to make them 3D.
To make the napkin rings themselves, I got a little creative. I had some wired sisal in my craft stash–it ended up being thick and sturdy enough to act as a ring. Make a two inch or so loop with the sisal wire, wrapping the ends in on each other to form a solid “O.”
As nice as the sisal is, we want it to match our flowers a bit better and cover up our pointy wire ends. Using a 7/8 inch satin ribbon, wrap the sisal ring until it’s completely covered and stick the ends down with a bit of hot glue.
From there, all you have to do is glue your flower petals in a cluster to the ring (hot glue will work best) and you’re done!
