Thanksgiving tables are one of the highlights of the home decor year. Make your own beautiful Thanksgiving napkin rings to add sparkle to your holiday table. This easy craft is a great way to get kids involved in the decorating. You can do the first one together, then from there they will have no trouble making their own.
Things You'll Need
- Small plastic shower curtain rings
- Craft glue
- Ribbon in Thanksgiving colors or patterns
- Silver beads
Cut the ribbon into 12-inch lengths. You will need two pieces per napkin ring. They will look best if they are different colors.
Glue the ribbon around the ring. Place a dot of glue inside the shower ring and press the end of the ribbon into place. Then wrap the ribbon around the ring until it is completely covered. Glue that end of the ribbon in place.
Tie the second ribbon in a bow at the top of the ring. You should leave the tails fairly long. Make the "ears" small (no more than an inch on each side). Tie the bow as tightly as you can so it does not come undone.
Glue the acorn into the center of the bow. You will need to use a small glob of glue and hold the acorn in place until the glue sets. This could take up to 60 seconds.
Thread one or more silver beads on to the tails of the bow. Knot the ends of the ribbon. Now you have beautiful napkin rings with a touch of nature to decorate your holiday table.
Tips & Warnings
- Be gentle with these napkin rings since the acorns are likely fragile.
- Do not use acorns that have holes. You might be inviting guests you do not want crawling on your table.
