Step-by-Step Instructions

1. Measure and Cut the Fabric

Measure and cut your fabric strips or ribbon to about 10 inches long and 2 inches wide. This size fits most napkins perfectly, but feel free to adjust the length and width based on your preference.

2. Sew the Fabric Edges

Fold the edges of the fabric strips inward and sew them down to prevent fraying. If you’re using ribbon, you can skip this step or use a lighter to carefully seal the edges.

3. Create the Ring

Form a loop with the fabric strip by bringing the ends together and sewing them. Ensure the seam is secure, as this will form the base of your napkin ring.

4. Attach the Jeweled Buttons

Using a needle and thread or a hot glue gun, attach the jeweled buttons to the fabric ring. You can place a single button in the center or create a pattern with multiple buttons. Be creative!

5. Final Touches

Once the buttons are securely attached, trim any excess threads or fabric. Your festive napkin ring is now ready to use!

Tips for Customizing Your Napkin Rings

  • Color Coordination: Match the fabric and buttons to your table setting colors for a cohesive look.
  • Seasonal Themes: Use themed buttons or fabric (like snowflakes for winter or flowers for spring) to suit the occasion.
  • Personalization: Add initials or small charms to make each napkin ring unique for your guests.
