We saw our niece and nephew sing at church tonight and it. was. wonderful! There’s something about little ones signing & singing songs about Jesus that always makes me teary. Speaking of Christmas and fellowship, if you’re hosting a family dinner and you’re looking for some inexpensive and easy ways to snazz up your dining room/kitchen table, how about giving your napkin rings some bling?
All you need are some plain napkin rings…
…a hot glue gun, glue sticks, and some “holiday bling” from the arts & crafts store…
Everything in the photo above was marked 50% off, and Kevin and I had a ball putting them together today. Of course we had to name them all too.
“It’s a bird…it’s a plane…it’s a napkin ring!”
Kinda pretty, huh? Or is it weird to have a bird nesting in the middle of your plate right before you eat off of it? Anywho…these next ones aren’t quite as…uh…………….these next few don’t have eyeballs.
These little adhesive-backed poinsettias went on especially quick…
(You could probably even make these if you wanted to get really crafty. They’re just made out of felt and corn kernels.)
I call it: “I want some spaghetti-a, under my poinsettia”
Remember, there are no mistakes in festive napkin ring-making, so just have fun with it!
PS- The hot glue blobs under your embellishments will peel right off, so you can go from holi-day to every-day, whenever you’re ready to switch ’em up!
Thanks for hanging out on the scoop-side of a spoon with me today!
Love the napkin rings but my favorite is that last photo 🙂
Thank you, Thank you! I bought some of those little nests at Hobby Lobby hoping to make them into napkin rings or place card holders or something but wasn’t quite sure how! Can’t wait to try it now!
What cute ideas! I love these, the birds nest is super cute.
I love the look of all of these they are too cute. I have been given some inspiration, thanks.
Such a fun post and the names all rock! My fav is the after dinner hint ;). Too cute!

Soooo cute and simple. I am not a good tablescape person. I just never put in the effort, but this I could DO. Love the butterfly one for some reason. Thank you.
You are so smart, you ideas are all lovely!
Layla, did you come out of the womb adorable? Thanks for brightening our days.
Hi Layla and Kevin…
What a perfectly grand idea. I’m soooooooo going to copy.
The napkin rings are so pretty -I can’t even pick a favorite -I really like the jingle bells -couldn’t you see that with a room full of first graders 🙂
You two are just the cutest couple I always enjoy what you to have created !
How fun, Layla!!!! My fav is “Bingle Jells”!!! Your posts are always so much fun and lighthearted – and I’m always leaving with some sort of wonderful idea! Thank you – and Kevin – for just being YOU!!!! 🙂
Brilliant! You are so creative.
Oooh I love all of these! Thanks for the idea. I’ll definitely have to try them, especially since you can peel them right off, need be. Thanks again!
haha, love the Twilight reference 🙂
These are so, so cute! Thanks for the great ideas. I love the peppermint one the best, but the butterfly is adorable!
love them, so easy and cute, the bird is one of my favorites~!

Oh my that was fun!!! Your photography is out of this world! Great ideas!
Love the one with the bells!
I really want to make some of these now for our Christmas- But a few errand on Saturday and I was still empty handed for napkin rings! Guess Ill do a little scrounging around and if push comes to shove I’ll try wrapping some wrapping paper rolls in foil. 🙂

SQUEEEE…these ideas are great. I had ordered place card holders online and they won’t ship until January..DUH. I think I am off to the dollar store to find napkin rings and make some Bingle Jells with a little touch of Twilight!!! Thanks for the inspiration…
What are the napkins rings made out off. Not the items you put on them, the actual napkin rings?
These are beautiful napkin rings! I cannot wait to make some of my own. I really like the one you are wearing on your hand 😀
