DIY Colorblock Napkin Rings

Hey loves! It’s Chelsea from Lovely Indeed, with the first in a series of DIY posts about putting together an absolutely awesome dinner party table setting. Over the next few weeks I’ll hit you with tips for everything from the place cards to the centerpieces, but today we’re starting with some killer colorblock napkin rings.

Supplies –

  • plastic shower curtain rings
  • a few colors of embroidery thread
  • glue gun
  • scissors

Gather the ends of all colors of the embroidery thread. Line up the ends carefully and, using a very small dot of hot glue, affix them to the inside of the shower curtain ring. Make sure that they lead toward the portion of the ring that snaps closed (this will be the backside of your napkin ring).

Begin wrapping your first thread. Choose the color that you’d like at the back of the napkin ring. Wrap it repeatedly around the ring and the other threads, hiding the snap on the ring and the additional thread colors. Wrap until you’d like your next color to start. Simply choose a new thread and begin wrapping that one, again hiding all other threads.

Continue all the way around the ring, colorblocking as you go. You can choose to do uneven blocks of color like I did, or be more precise and do stripes or even a pattern. When you near completion on the ring, snip the three colors of thread that you’re not using any longer, ensuring that they are secured under the final color.

Wrap the final color until it meets your first thread. Use a very tiny dot of hot glue to secure the thread to the inside of the ring and snip the end. Make more rings, either matching or contrasting with your first one!

Use and enjoy! Next time around we’ll tackle another project that will fit right in with these little beauts. See you then! xoxo
