We needed napkin rings for all of those fun family napkins we made a month ago. I was trying to think of what to make them with when my genius husband said, rather nonchalantly, "we have all those shower curtain rings upstairs...". Genius! I tell you. And they are perfect! And the best part is, I always see shower curtain rings at the thrift store, so if you want to make your own then you can pick them up for cheap. They were super easy to do.
What you'll need:
shower curtain rings
ribbon (just assume you need lots, about a yard+ per ring)
First, you open up the ring, insert the end of the ribbon and close the ring on the ribbon.
Start wrapping, overlapping each layer by about half until you make it back to the enclosure.
Once you get to the enclosure wrap the ribbon around it several time until it becomes the same thickness as the rest of the ring.
Now get your glue gun and glue the end of the ribbon down and cut off any excess.
There you go! Easy peasy. And now, every night after dinner we take a look at our napkin and if it could still get some use before it needs a good wash then we put it back in our own ring until our next meal. Enjoy!
I'll be sharing the love here:
