A few weeks ago we told you how you can really spruce up your dining table with some simple napkin folding techniques https://skyyliving.com/simple-diy-napkin-folds/ So while simple napkin folds can do wonders, using napkin rings adds another dimension to your table setting.

Napkin rings are awesome accessories to adorn and keep your dinner napkins in place. They are quite popular and can be found in various styles, shapes, colours and designs.

But we thought why not have some DIY fun and make your own napkin rings using things you find in your homes. The charm that a homemade napkin ring will add to your table will beat any fancy store-bought napkin ring hollow. Not to mention that expense you’ll save.

So let’s see what we need for our first DIY napkin ring

 Things You Need

  • Paper Towel Rolls
  • Seashells
  • Some Thin/ Hemp Rope
  • Hot Glue Gun


  • Start by tucking an end of the rope inside the end of the tube and glue it there.
  • Using very little hot glue. roll the rope tightly around each cardboard tube.
  • When you get to the other end, glue the end securely to the edge of the cardboard tube.
  • Stick the seashell or whatever decoration you wish to use depending on your theme with a little hot glue. You’re done!

What do you think I should name this – I’m leaning towards something like Holiday On My Plate.

For our second DIY, we need something that you will find in all homes.

Things You Need

  • Shower Curtain Rings
  • Coloured Ribbon
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Decoration Of Your Choice


  • I glue 3 shower rings to make one napkin ring.
  • Using a small amount of hot glue on the inside of my rings, stick the end of your satin ribbon into the glue. I used about four feet of ribbon for each napkin ring.
  • Make sure you wrap the ribbon tightly around the rings, overlapping in places so none of the white underneath shows through between the ribbon.
  • Once this is done, put a dot on the ribbon and stick a decoration of your choice to adds the glam factor.

Tip: After you remove your napkin from the ring, you should place the napkin on your lap and the ring to the left of your plate.
