My Inspiration…

One of the things I love most about being in these blog hop groups is that they’re a constant source of inspiration.

Recently, Rachel from The Ponds Farmhouse, made a set of beautiful horse napkin rings.

Horses and equestrian inspired décor have been a staple in my home and in my parent’s home for decades.

So, naturally, I fell in love immediately and couldn’t wait to make a set of napkin rings of my own.

While I was searching for horse bits that were small enough to fit on a napkin ring, I came across these beautiful vintage inspired flower buttons.

And since our theme this month is vintage or antique buttons, I knew they would be the perfect way to try my hand at making a set of quick and easy flower napkin rings.

Here’s a look at how to make quick and easy flower napkin rings in case you want to make a set too…

Quick and Easy Flower Napkin Ring Supplies:

  • Napkin Rings
  • Flower Button Embellishments
  • Antique Gold Rub N Buff or Spray Paint, optional
  • E6000 Glue

Quick and Easy Flower Napkin Ring Steps:

Gather your supplies and make sure your workstation is free from dirt and debris.

I found these napkin rings on Amazon.

They’re a little smaller than the other napkin rings I have.

But I like that they’re flat on the bottom, so they stand up nice and straight.

The color is listed as “matte gold” and when they arrived they were a bit shinier than I expected.

So, I decided to add a quick coat of Rub N Buff in Antique Gold to each napkin ring.

That way, they would be a better match for the gold accents in the vintage inspired flower buttons.

If you also decide to use Rub N Buff, be sure not to get any on the inside of your napkin ring, or you’ll risk it rubbing off on your napkins.

Next, make sure you read all the instructions that come with the E6000 package and use the glue in a well-ventilated area.

It has a very strong odor.

Once your napkin rings are completely dry, add a small dot of E6000 glue to the top of your napkin ring.

Then add a vintage inspired flower button on top of the glue.

Add a little pressure to the top of the flower to make sure it is properly secured to the napkin ring.

Finally, stand your quick and easy flower napkin rings upright and allow the glue to dry 24 hours.

After the glue is dry, you can use your flower napkin rings.

Gifting and Entertaining…

As I shared above these napkin rings are a little smaller than our other napkin rings.

They fit this vintage lace trimmed napkin really well.

But are a bit snug for this thicker textured napkin.

All in all, though, I’m excited about the way these quick and easy flower napkin rings came together.

I mean, three steps feels totally doable, you know?

Plus, they’d make a beautiful gift.

Or a fun way to dress up a simple tablescape.

Let me know if you decide to try this too!

  1. CoCo,
    I’m so glad you were inspired by my horse napkin rings because these are just stunning. Now I’m on the lookout for some great buttons like these. Wow so cute.

  2. These napkin rings are adorable! It seems like the hardest part would be finding exactly the right pieces to make them with. I guess that is part of the fun!

  3. Oh my m, CoCo, I love these. The Rub N Buff elevated these. I like that they are flat on the bottom. I need to get these for a future craft project. Pinned!

  4. Coco, these are so beautiful! I love them. Hugs to you.

  5. Those buttons are gorgeous and I can’t imagine what kind of dress or outfit they’d be sewn to. Something schmancy for sure! Love the idea of using them for napkin rings. I have gotten out of the habit of using them when one year the table was so full there was no place to put them after you took it off (they were quite large). But my goodness, those would look amazing anywhere. Thank you for joining us and for sharing the DIY. Love it!
