Have you seen these beautiful napkin ring holders from Beth @ The Stories of A to Z? If not click here for the full scoop on this fabulous project!
I saw these rings visiting Beth's fun blog one day and was instantly inspired to try this project myself! Afterall, pretty napkin ring holders at retail go for at least $4 or $5 each...if not more! So I set out to create my own version using shells and thin jute twine I snagged at Target for just a dollar!
Here are my suppies. Again the twine...just a buck! The shells I bought at Michael's for $2.99 (or you could just find them at the beach!) and the napkin ring holders were just 50 cents each from Old Time Pottery, one of my favorite discount stores.
For this project I tied the twine in a simple tight knot in the center of the ring, then I wrapped the twine (tightly) all the way around the ring to cover the entire piece. Once I finished wrapping...I glued the last twine string to the inside of the ring. Then I gave the inside of each ring a coating of Mod Podge for extra durability.
Next I adhered a shell atop each ring using my glue gun. As you can see from the picture below, I placed the shell over top that unsightly single knot.
Here they are finished! Yup, these napkin rings are cute and easy. In fact, often my favorite design projects are all about taking a great idea (like Beth's)...and simplifying it!
And one last look! Such a fun project that only took one afternoon to finish...I'm tellin' ya, this crafty project rocks!
