DIY Gift Idea: Custom Napkin Rings

Photo21

Custom napkin rings are a gift most people would appreciate this holiday season. The decorative accents can be made to fit anyone’s style. Here’s how to make your own.

1. Fold a napkin to the shape and size you would normally have it when displayed in the napkin ring.

2. Measure around your napkin at your desired point and cut fabric to this size, accounting for a hem. I cut the fabric to twice the size I needed then folded the piece of fabric in half.

3. Iron the hem into the fabric and sew the sides together.

4. Create a closure. I chose to do a simple, hand-sewn button closer.

I think it turned out nicely.
