Holiday Inspired DIY Napkin Rings

We’re excited to share holiday-inspired DIY napkin rings as we team up with some of our favorite creative ladies for the Fabulous Friday Link Party Holiday Blog Hop!


Inching Closer to the Holidays…

As we inch closer to the holidays, we are laser-focused on finding simple ways to intentionally slow down and enjoy all the things that make the season special.

We spend a lot of time lingering around the table after each meal. So, I thought it would be fun to create holiday-inspired DIY napkin rings.

Given we’re trying to keep things as easy as possible, my only goal was for these napkin rings to seamlessly transition from Thanksgiving and Christmas.

And I feel like we’ve accomplished just that!

The beauty of these holiday-inspired DIY napkin rings is they can be customized to fit whatever theme you’re celebrating this year.

Bonus, they can be completed in an afternoon depending on how many you need to make.

Here’s a look at everything you’ll need to make a set of holiday-inspired DIY napkin rings too…

Holiday Inspired DIY Napkin Ring Supplies:

  • Paper Towel Roll (we used 2 paper towel rolls for a total of 8 napkin rings)
  • Scissors
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Glue
  • Wide Ribbon (color or pattern of your choice) (The ribbon we used was not wired)
  • Skinny Ribbon (color or pattern of your choice)
  • Embellishments

Holiday-Inspired DIY Napkin Ring Steps:

Gather your supplies and organize your workstation.

Using caution and care as scissors will be sharp, cut a paper towel roll into your desired napkin ring width.

Cut strips of wide ribbon long enough to wrap around the napkin ring completely.

This ribbon is approximately 3.5 inches wide. The width of our napkin ring is approximately 2 inches wide.

Be sure to leave a little extra room to tuck the fabric inside the napkin ring. That way, you won’t see the cardboard from the paper towel roll.

Using caution and care as glue and glue gun will be hot, secure the ribbon to the outside of the napkin ring.

Make sure the ribbon fits around the napkin ring completely.

Again, using caution and care as glue and glue gun will be hot, tuck and secure the ribbon to the inside of the napkin ring.

Using caution and care as scissors will be sharp, cut the skinny ribbon long enough to be able to wrap around your napkin ring.

Then secure the skinny ribbon to the outside of the napkin ring with glue.

Again, using caution and care attach the embellishment to your napkin ring with glue.

Carefully slip your napkin into your napkin ring and enjoy!

Crafting Something Special This Christmas…

While I personally love soft muted colors and lots of neutrals, you can easily use this same idea to create napkin rings that best represent your style.

A beautiful red plaid, skinny black velvet ribbon, embellished with an equestrian vibe would be really pretty. Adding a snowflake to snow themed ribbon would be beautiful as well!

If you want to use these napkin rings throughout the year, you can embellish them with your monogram.

Truly, the possibilities are endless!

It’s always fun to create things together this time of year!
