Apple Napkin Rings

I thought I’d show you how easy it is to make napkin rings with a theme.  I’m doing apples this week for my Thursday Tablescape, so it’s only natural for me to have some apple napkin rings to go with it.

They were so easy to make, and they are so unique and very inexpensive.  Here’s how I made them.

I started with some wooden napkin rings that I’d gotten from Michaels.

The other thing that you’ll need is some Styrofoam apples.  I also got these from Michaels. These are the same apples that I used for my Apple Centerpiece.

I painted the wooden napkin rings with 2 coats of Apple Barrel White Gloss acrylic paint.  Then I cut the apples in half using a serrated bread knife.  Saw through them slowly so they don’t dent from the pressure you might need.

As careful as I was, some of the stems came off, so I just used a little hot glue to put them back in place.  Once the apple stems were glued in place, I added a drop of hot glue to the wooden napkin ring and pressed the apple half into it.

That’s all it took to make Apple Napkin Rings.  Easy & a little different.  I may have to try it with some pumpkins next.

And here they are in use.
