I was in the Dollar Tree the other day looking for these.

Why, you ask? Well after seeing some amazing inspiration photos online, I decided to try my hand at this simple project. I imagine that these packs usually sell for $1/ea, but for some reason they rang up as $0.25/each. Yes, that’s right-8 rings for $0.50!

I chose twine because I happened to have it, but I’ve seen this done with burlap or fabric as well. To start, I hot glued one end of a LONG piece of twine (it takes more than you think, I kept running out…) to the inside of the ring, in the middle.

Then I began wrapping, stopping to hot glue about every 4th wrap.

You’ll want to keep squishing the wraps together so that you can’t see the original ring. Once you’ve gone all the way around, hot glue the tail on the inside of the ring so it doesn’t show and trim. Now here’s the fun part. Get some cute ribbon and accents to add some bling! I used 2 kinds of ribbon (it takes about 6 yards) and some jewelry pieces. The jewels came in an 8 pack which was perfect!

I hot glued the ribbon all the way around, then glued the jewel on top where the ribbon ends meet.

Now I don’t actually have any cloth napkins, but now I’m tempted to make some! Have any of you made napkins and/or rings? Do share!
