Thanksgiving Napkin Rings

I apologize for my long absence. As we all know, this time of year is a very busy one. I thought I would show you a quick project I am making for the dinner table on Thanksgiving.

These napkin rings were fun and easy to make, so get out your glue gun and let’s get started.

I started off with an 8″ piece of Stampin’ Up!’s 3-1/2″ Crumb Cake Scalloped Tulle Ribbon cut in four 2″ pieces. I ran a piece of More Mustard and Chocolate Chip card stock through the Big Shot using the Autumn Accents die for the leaf and acorn. I punched the 1-1/4″ Scallop Circle from Crumb Cake card stock. All of these items are in our Holiday Catalog. The buttons are from the Neutrals Designer Buttons pack.

I took our Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint, using a Sponge Dauber, and painted my button. I wanted a more subtle look. I set the button to the side to dry. If you are in a hurry, a blast from the heat gun works well. As you can see, I label my Sponge Daubers with the ink or paint I have used them on.

Next I took my 2″ piece of tulle and stuck my finger in the middle of it and kind of twisted the end to make a ruffled piece.

I placed my scalloped circle on the Silicone Craft Sheet and attached my tulle piece using my glue gun, holding it down with my clothespin for a few seconds to allow it to stay put. I then added the other pieces of tulle to the scallop circle.

I tied a bow through my button using some retired Natural Twine, but our Linen Thread will work just as well. I then glued the button to my tulle.

I made my actual napkin rings using some retired Twill Tape, but any piece of wide ribbon or even burlap will work for the rings. The Twill Tape was a 4″ piece, which the ends were simply glued to make a ring. Your seam will be hidden when you attach your tulle piece.

Next I glued my leaf and acorn to the napkin ring using my glue gun again.

And, finally, the tulle piece is glued on for the finishing touch.

Trim your tulle ribbon as desired. I hope you enjoyed this little tutorial.
