Today I’m here with a very fun project…and making these Thanksgiving napkin rings was so easy that anyone can do it. All you need are a few supplies and a printer. A few years ago, I did something similar with clay tags but I realize not everyone wants to go to that much trouble. This version qualifies for the big three: easy, fast and budget-friendly!

Thanksgiving Napkin Rings Supplies:
- Cardstock (I used brown kraft cardstock but any color will work.)
- Template (Click HERE to download.)
- Hole punch
- 7/8 inch or 1 inch wide ribbon
- Fresh greenery for embellishment (Rosemary, pine, berries.)
First thing to do is print the template. Cut each rectangle out just inside the red line. Carefully punch holes on both short sides of the rectangles.
Cut as many lengths of ribbon as you need napkin rings. Depending on how big your napkins are, about 10 to 12 inches should be a good length. That will give you plenty of room to snip the ends neatly.
Lay a ribbon piece on a flat surface lengthwise. Place the folded or rolled napkin on the ribbon. Take a rectangle and carefully poke the ends of the ribbon up through the holes on each side. Pull the ribbon tight but do it very gently so you don’t tear through the hole. Snip the ends of the ribbon so they are equal length. Tuck a piece of fresh greenery behind the rectangle. You can definitely make these a few days in advance if you use rosemary or any sort of pine. I made them about a week ago and the rosemary has dried a bit but still looks lovely.

I’ll be back in a few day with my All Things Creative team and then again on Thursday as part of a Holiday Entertaining Tour. You will see the rest of this copper-inspired tablescape then. I am very honored to have been included and I’m looking forward to sharing lovely and inspiring ideas with all of you.
Until then, I’d love it if you would visit my eBay blog where I shared Crushing on Copper: Easy ways to add this trendy metal to your decor.
