I am going to run through how to create each Thanksgiving napkin ring idea from the top to the bottom in the image above. A few tidbits about May Arts ribbon before I begin. If you are looking for high quality ribbon in any size or shape you can imagine, May Arts will have it. Now with their online store, The Ribbon Resource, it has never been easier to buy just the quantity of fabulous ribbon that you need for a small project. Now onto those napkin ring ideas! First up is the turkey napkin ring. Okay so it just mimics the turkey feathers, but it will look too cute on your Thanksgiving table. First of all, you will need the following ribbon to complete this napkin ring:
You will also need a toilet paper or paper towel roll. These are actually the perfect size for a napkin ring and well…they are free!
Cut off a small 1 to 2 inch piece from your cardboard tube. Cover it in the yellow cord as shown in the image below. You will need to secure the ends with hot glue.
Then cut the yellow, orange, and red suede to about 3 inch lengths. Fold in half as shown in the image below. I used four pieces of each color to get a fuller turkey fan.
Use hot glue to secure the ends of that entire bundle of ribbon to the covered ring. Hold in place for a few seconds then release. The ribbon will fan out to look like turkey feathers. One napkin ring down! Now you just have to create additional ones for the other guests at your holiday table.
Our next idea is a braided ribbon napkin ring. Use the following ribbons for this one as well:
I used clothespins to hold the ribbon as I worked. Braid just as you would if you were braiding your ponytail.
Use hot glue to secure around a wood napkin ring. Trim the ends once everything is secure. A simple yet elegant touch to your Thanksgiving table! Pick and choose the colors of ribbon that will match any plans you have for your holiday table. This idea will transition well to other holidays as well.
Next is a napkin ring idea that can be completed with the ribbon of your choice. I used a length of this butterscotch striped ribbon.
Literally bring a large piece around from the back of the toilet paper roll, twist around itself in the front, then just bring the loose ends around to the back. Secure the ends with a bit of hot glue in the back. How easy is that?? Your guests will never know that it only took you a few seconds to create these beautiful napkin rings. One tip is to make sure that your toilet paper roll length is 1/2 an inch less than your ribbon width so it does not show.
My last two ideas are if you really want to add leaves and autumn colors to your holiday table. First up is a felt leaf napkin ring that uses the following ribbons:
Note that if you choose different ribbons, the width of the base ribbon should be slightly larger than the width of the leaves.
Trim your toilet paper roll to about one inch long. Cover the outside with the burlap ribbon and hot glue into place.
Add the felt leaves on top of the burlap and again use hot glue to secure. This gorgeous napkin ring will really bring out those fall colors on your table.
I was so in love with the gold burlap when I got it, I decided to use it twice! For this version you will need:
Basically repeat the same steps as for the felt leaves napkin ring. Hot glue both ribbons stacked to a piece of the toilet paper roll. This super simple monochromatic design will work on almost any Thanksgiving table.
