Since I got a little taste of my glittery and “bling-ed” out Halloween, I thought I’d definitely want to bring a little glitz and glam to my dinner table this year for Thanksgiving. I guess you could call it rustic chic! Plus, I love burlap crafts. I found some sparkly earrings in my closet and thought I would make Repurposed Earring Burlap and Feather Napkin Rings.
You only need 3 things:
- Earrings of choice, one per napkin ring
- Burlap strips
Here are the earrings I found. I think it’s been close to a decade since I’ve worn them… yikes! Dangly rhinestone earrings MUST have been in!
I went to Joann Fabrics and Crafts and found these fun blue feathers in the floral section.
I gave them a little bend and they were the perfect size for napkin rings.
First I folded my cloth napkins and wrapped a strip of burlap around it. I didn’t secure it in any way.
The feather wraps nicely around the burlap and keeps it in place. This will also make it easy for your guests to take off when they are ready to use them. Next, I simply pierced the earring through the burlap and out the backing on the earring to keep it on. This way, you won’t ruin your earrings and you can still wear them…that s if they are still in style!
I thought they turned out cute! They are definitely the inspiration for my whole Thanksgiving table scape… now for the centerpieces!
