Let’s work on some tablescape as the holiday season is approaching. Napkin rings are always pretty detail in any setting. Wooden Beads napkin rings are super easy to make. They add sweet touch to any tablescape! There are so many ways to put your own spin on the them! Just change size and color of your beads or tassel …Yes, that easy! Let’s make ours with tassels!
Supplies needed to make a napkin ring
- Wooden Beads
So let’s begin
First, you need to cut twine about 20 inches long and we can begin to string beans. My wooden beads are small around 10mm in diameter so I used 16 of them. My goal was to have around 3 inches loop.
Tie the two pieces of twine together and then tie it again. Make sure it is double-knotted. Set on the side for now.
Now, let’s make a Tassel! Wrap a your choice of twine around your fingers ( like me ..ha ha) or use a cardboard. There is no magic number how many times you need to wrap the twine. My twine was thick so I only wrapped my hand 7 times. The more you wrap the twine around, the thicker that tassel will be at the end
Slide the twine off of your fingers or cardboard keeping it in the same position so that it is in the shape of an “O.” Then, cut the “O” in half at the top. This will leave you with a several pieces of twine in a bundle. This will become your tassel .
… and it is ready! Easy right?
Three wooden bead napkin ring
As it always happens I can’t stop on one idea…Let’s do some more shall we?
As you can see it is a Hot Mess here… ha ha ha . My yarn got tangled up so it is time to start to make something useful. I think I can squeeze few new styles of napkin rings for the holiday tablescapes . Let’s try to figure what we can do.
I decided to use big bead with couple of smaller but dark ones.
- thread your beads
- thread the ends of the twine through the wood bead from opposite sides.
- repeat that again and create another loop as shown below
and we are almost done…. Just need to take care of ends of our twine. What I like to do is to attach another smaller bead. Tie knots in the ends of the strings.
And we are done!
Here is a quick recap for your reference
and it continues … this time I used flat circle and a big bead and repeated same steps
