DIY Napkin Rings with Beads


How to Create Napkin Rings With Beads

Hello! I am here today with a fun post for your table décor. I think it is fun to have place cards and Napkin Rings. So, I like to combine the two.

We don’t have a big family, but I like to control where everyone sits. LOL! Don’t you? Anyway, these are a fun, little project that can dress up your table in no time.

Creating Napkin Rings With Beads

This summer while garage sale-ing, (I think I just made up a new word) I ended up purchasing an insane amount of beads. So, now, I am trying to find some fun uses for them beyond jewelry. I thought these Napkin Rings fit the bill, and they look great!

Supplies Needed:

  • Wire
  • Beads
  • Wire cutters
  • Round nose pliers

How to Create your Napkin Rings:

Step 1: Cut a length of wire about 9 inches long

Step 2: Create a small “loop” at one end of the wire using the round nose pliers

Step 3: Slide the beads you have chosen onto the wire.

At first, I created a pattern with the beads up to the half way point then reversed the pattern for the second half. It looked great while it was straight, but when I twisted the wire around my napkin, the beads that looked the same ended up stacked together and it looked funny. So, I switched them around until I got the look I wanted.

Step 4: Create another “loop” at the other end of the wire when you have your beads all done.

Step 5: Twist the beaded wire around the napkin as tight as you like it to create your Napkin Ring

If you like a place card, you can put it between the rows of beads.

I hope you enjoyed this “how to” tutorial. I know you will love these Napkin Rings!

Happy creating!
