Rustic Napkin Rings

4 Materials
15 Minutes

I’ve been wanting to bring a bit more of a natural, rustic feel to my home decor this Christmas so I thought these little napkin rings would be a great start and so great to fit in with so many different colors and tablescapes.

I’ll share some variations with you as well depending on the use or look you’d like.

Here are all the materials I used. The fresh coffee was the most important thing and cannot be forgotten or the napkin rings may not turn out 😄

First cut short pieces of your greenery, two for each napkin ring. Also form a small bow from thin ribbon, narrow lace etc. I used some vintage lace I had and some very narrow white ribbon.

Using hot glue, secure the greenery to either side of your center. I put one piece with a slight upward angle and one with a slight downward angle for added interest.

Next hot glue your tiny pinecone in place.

This is how I made mine for my table but I had a number of ideas for variations and will show you a couple ideas.

A tiny bell in the middle...

Or a tiny clothespin which you can then use to clip a name card for place settings or a little picture or item.

Other ideas I had were cinnamon sticks, a tiny ornament, a snowflake, a flower, a little shell for a coastal Christmas....almost anything really.

Here are the finished place settings. Very simple but very pretty
