Use Shower Curtain Rings to
Make Your Table Pretty
I love napkin rings and these DIY napkin rings turned out better than I thought they would. There are so many beautiful napkin rings out there, but some of them have some pretty beautiful prices, too! I like to use PVC pieces from Home Depot to make my napkin rings like I did with these from my late summer sunflower tablescape but things were a little different last week. I had just taken a piece of PVC and used my hot glue to add a couple of leaves and a sunflower and I had pretty and very simple napkin rings. In all of the preparations for hurricane Irma, the last thing I wanted to do was to make a trip into the Home Depot or Lowe’s with everyone shopping for batteries and plywood just for some more PVC rings. I had taken my Mom to Walmart and thought there must be something I could use at Walmart for napkin rings. I found shower curtain rings! Two packages for ninety seven cents each. I snapped each ring together tightly. Time to go to work with my glue gun! I glued two rings together like I show above and then I added a third one to my little stack just to make my napkin rings as wide as I wanted. The stack of three rings was going to be the perfect size for my napkin rings. When all of my rings were glued together it was time to start covering them with ribbon. Blue is a primary color in my home, so blue satin ribbon was going to be perfect! I began with a small amount of hot glue on the inside of my rings with the end of some navy blue satin ribbon stuck into the glue. I used about four feet of ribbon for each napkin ring.
Wrapping the the ribbon tightly around the rings I made sure I over lapped it enough so none of the white showed through between the ribbon. These looked pretty enough I could have just used these like this, but I spotted these beautiful sunflowers with deep blue centers in them that I wanted to use for these napkin rings. I pulled the sunflower blossoms off the bush they were on and used the hot glue to attach the blossoms right where the indentation on the shower rings was. I hadn’t even pulled the hot glue string off of this one when I snapped this photo.With these dark blue centers on the sunflowers, I knew these were going to be stunning on my table.I will be featuring the pretty tablescape that I used these napkin rings for later this week! Come back and see it!
