Other than using our sterling silver napkin rings, I have made plenty of napkin rings in the past, especially for client parties. But I have to admit, I never used inexpensive plastic Shower Curtain Rings before and I couldn’t be more pleased with how they came out and how fast they were to make. I have a feeling I will be making a lot more napkin rings in my future and I will need to designate a drawer for them, that’s for sure!
During a Dollar Tree visit, just to pick up a few gift bags and boxes for cookie swap and brunch I was hosting, I passed a box of shower curtain rings and without warning, my crafting lightbulb quickly went off over my head. I knew if I could find the right item to hot glue or tie onto the plastic ring, I would be able to make quick personalized napkin rings for the brunch.
Items needed to make these napkin rings:
Hot Glue Gun
Shower Curtain Rings
Ornaments or small decorative item
A little time…. coffee… tea…. or possibly wine
The ornament wall was full of inexpensive choices and I grabbed these white sparkling Christmas trees and the red sparkling Merry Christmas ornaments.
All that needs to be done is make sure the napkin ring is clicked closed, add a medium size bead of hot glue onto the top of the ring (I placed the seam of the ring on the table since it showed when I tried using it under these particular ornaments), place the ornament or object onto the hot glue and let is sit for a moment before trying to touch and adjust it.
Once they are glued on and cooled, I added a couple more beads of glue to the underside of the ornament to secure it firmly onto the shower curtain ring and voila! DIY napkin rings!
