Hello Uncommon Design readers! Today I have a Christmas Holiday DIY to share with you – these were so much fun to make, I hope you’ll make some too!
When it comes to creating an inviting and beautiful dining environment for my family and guests, one of the first things I add to my table are napkins with decorative napkin rings! It’s the icing on the cake for any tablescape!
This Christmas I’m decorating with a blue color palette and peacock feathers, so when I saw these chunky sparkly beads I knew they would be perfect for my holiday peacock inspired tablescape!
I whipped up these gorgeous Beaded Napkin Rings in no time at all!
Supplies Needed to create Beaded Napkin Rings:
Wire head pins
Beads in different sizes
Step 1: Create a beaded charm:
Add one small bead and one large bead to a wire head pin.
Create a loop in the wire to secure the beads.
Step 2: Create the napkin ring:
Cut the wire 10 inches.
Create a loop at the end of the wire, with the pliers, to hold the beads on.
String the beads in any pattern you wish.
Add the beaded charm last.
Create a loop in the wire. Don’t completely close this loop!
Hook the first loop into the second loop to create a closed circle.
Make sure both loops are completely closed to secure all the beads!
Now you have a gorgeous handmade beaded napkin ring! This only took me 15 minutes to make.
This is a great gift idea: teacher gifts, neighbor gifts or stocking stuffers!
I hope you enjoyed my tutorial!
