Easy Christmas Napkin Ring Crafts
Making your own Christmas napkin rings is as easy as 1 – 2 – 3!
Charmed Napkin Rings
1. Cut a 9′ spool of wire-edged ribbon into 6″ strips. (One spool makes approximately 16 napkin rings.)
2. Use hot glue to secure each ribbon strip in a circle.
3. Add a 3-D sticker or a Christmas charm to each napkin ring.
Both the charms and the stickers come on a card of six. Don’t remove the small wire twist securing each charm to the card. Poke a hole near the top of the napkin ring with the point of a sharp pair of scissors. Thread the wire twist through the front and flatten out on the inside to secure the charm.
Now you’re ready to charm your holiday guests!
Here, we’ve used a gold wire-edge ribbon and embellished it with a felt poinsettia. This makes for a pretty and elegant addition to the holiday table.
If you decide on a bright patterned ribbon, no extra embellishments may even be necessary.
Comic Napkin Rings
I enjoy reading the funny papers. It occurred to me that using individual comic strips with a Christmas theme as napkin rings would be a great way to add a little fun to a casual Christmas dinner table.
I printed some of my favorites from the Go Comics website http://www.gocomics.com/explore/comics. I tried to choose comics to suit the tastes of each member of the family. For example, my son is a fan of Garfield.
Then, simply fold and tape the cut out comics into a circle large enough to accommodate a napkin. When I used this idea at a family gathering, I made sure that the napkin rings could be unfolded. I wanted family members to be able to read their individual napkin rings. 🙂
Now that you get the idea, picture these napkin rings using different ribbons and decorative accents to match any season or occasion.
