Napkin Rings for Any Occasion!!

Happy Wednesday! I want to share a fun and super easy project I did today.  I’m not much of a tablescaper but I do love to add a bit of fun here and there.  I made napkin rings that can be easily customized… and they are super cheap!
You only need a few supplies for this one!
I used metal drapery rings with clips for my napkin rings.  I found mine at Hobby Lobby for $6.99 for 12 with no sale or coupon.  You can also find them at Lowe’s, JoAnn’s and many other stores.  They come in lots of different finishes.  I was originally going to paint mine but I really liked the bronze finish with my other decor.
I also purchased several pieces of coordinating scrapbook papers from Hobby Lobby.
The possibilities are endless for these napkin rings but I will show you a few that I came up with.  For two of mine I was able to use my Cricut Expression Machine with my new Songbird Font Cartridge… Love it!!
I used the machine to cut out a tag shape with one piece of paper.
I then cut the same shape 1/2″ smaller with a different sheet of paper. 
I glued those together and cut a “G” out to finish it off.  I love using our initials on almost everything 🙂
You then just attach a ring to it and you are finished… that easy and that cute!
I made these for Easter… I thought the colors and pattern was perfect!
I also made some that coordinated with the colors in my dining room.
I used the same technique, just different paper and shapes.
I used my Cricut Storybook Font for this tag.
Finally, I couldn’t resist my addiction love of burlap.  I used some black acrylic paint to stencil numbers on small pieces of burlap.  After they dried I attached them to a ring and I was done…. LOVE it 🙂  Anything burlap with numbers pretty much does it for me! 
Thanks so much for stopping by guys!  For under $10 this is a great project that can be revamped and changed all year round.  I hope you like it!

    Wow, I love seeing what can be accomplished with the Cricut Expression Machine…makes me want to buy one…and I have no experience in paper craft art.

    Thank you for sharing!

    Oh for the love of Cricut I've been debating on this for over a week now after I searched Craigslist and I keep thinking I won't use it that often but then I see these pretty ideas using the Cricut and I want it again. What do you think should i get it?!

    So cute! It would fun to run them through the Cuttlebug too and add some extra texture. Love your ideas (as usual!). I'm so ready for Spring Break so I can work on some projects.
