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 πŸ™‚
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 πŸ™‚  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!

    Just last night I picked up a pack of rings at Old Time Pottery for under $5.oo and then put them back. Looks like another trip to OTP coming on, this is a great idea.

    A few years ago I found those exact same drapery rings on sale at Target while I was looking for ideas for our Thanksgiving table. So I was so excited, I attached pretty leaves to mine and have also attached wrapped candy. Your ideas were adorable too, those cricut cutters are so neat, I have a friend who just bought one and can't wait to see her use it.
    Thanks for sharing your cute ideas.
    Blessings, Nellie

  37. WestSacHoney on February 25, 2010 at 12:16 am

    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?!
