I’ve really got to stop looking at sites on the Internet. I see so many beautiful things that are way out of my budget. This is what happened when I was looking at Pottery Barn’s site. They had some ‘Crystal Bracelet Napkin Rings’, but they were $25.00. That’s just a little more than I wanted to pay for a little bling on the table.
While shopping at the Dollar Tree, I got one of my bright ideas, and I really like how it turned out. The project was unbelievably easy to make, and the results added just the right finishing touch to my Winter Tablescape!
When I was making everything that I needed for my Mardi Gras Tablescape, I needed napkin rings. I didn’t want to use plain gold, purple or green ones. To keep with the theme, I decided to use some of the table scatter coins. They were some of the easiest napkin rings that I’ve made so far.
This Christmas Tablescape was inspired by the stoneware. Creatively Sam’s isn’t quite a year old yet, and I’ve been wanting to use this all year! Every time I look at this stoneware, I find myself humming the song, “O Christmas Tree”. Welcome to my “O Christmas Tree” Tablescape!
Cuisine Kathleen has issued a “White Fall” challenge. ONLY WHITE dishes, but ONE other accent for linens, glassware etc. This was fun, but very challenging. No problem with the white dishes, since they’re my everyday go to dishes.
The challenging part was the ONE other color. Not different shades of the other color, but one other color. My other color started with a burnt orange sheet that my husband suggested I buy when Walmart had their sale going on. And a tablescape was born:
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’ve been searching for wooden napkin rings for months. Why wooden? Because I can customize them with paint to make them ‘mine’. Store bought ones are okay, but when I get a project in my head, nothing else will do. (I like to have my napkin rings match my tablescapes.)
As promised, here’s the tutorial for the Pearl Napkin Rings that were used in the Yellow Tablescape. They’re easy to make, use very little supplies, and can be customized to match the color theme of your tablescape.
