Fall Napkin Rings

Fall Napkin Rings

Make quick, cute napkin rings to put a personal finishing touch to your autumn table.

By: Carrie Harris

Decorate your table for fall with these easy homemade napkin rings, inspired by the natural colors and textures of the season (and easy on the wallet, too!).

1. Cardboard Tube Napkin Rings
Cut an empty paper towel, toilet paper or even wrapping paper tube into sections. Then decorate them: Wrap in twine or yarn (just hot glue down each end); cover with burlap or felt; or decoupage with fabric, craft paper or wallpaper scraps. Write on names in white puffy paint or permanent marker, and you’ve got both a napkin ring and a place card.

2. Twine Napkin Rings
For a rustic look that’s perfect for autumn, wrap twine around your napkin rolls a few times, then tie in a bow. You can also wrap a small piece of fabric around your napkin before you add the twine to create interesting layers.

3. Pumpkin Napkin Ring
Attach a circular bit to a power drill, and then carefully drill large holes through small decorative pumpkins. Thread your napkin rolls through them and set in the center of your plates.

Tip: You can also drill holes through small dried gourds.

4. Organic Napkin Rings
For fun DIY napkin rings, look outside — nature provides the perfect color palette for decorating! Wrap beautifully colored leaves (but not ones that are too crunchy) around napkin rolls, secure with ribbon and you’re done.

5. Spiced Napkin Rings
Take a few cinnamon sticks, place them on top of a napkin roll, and secure with twine to create a decorative and fragrant napkin ring. Or make a napkin ring that doubles as a favor: Tie on a mulling spice sachet, along with handwritten recipes for mulled apple cider and tea.
