I love entertaining outdoors during the warm weather months. I wanted to make some fun beach inspired napkin rings to add a little DIY to my table setting this summer. Here is how I made these easy shell DIY napkin rings. You only need a few materials.
I found the rope at Home Depot. I was able to make these nautical themed vases, this fabric bunting, this other fabric bunting, and eight of these napkin rings (and more) out of one package. Cut each piece into about 6 inches. Play around with the length to reach your desired ring size. Simply hot glue the ends together to form a ring. I like to use hot glue because it dries quickly and holds the rope very well.
Glue the shell on top, covering where the ends of the rope meet. I used E600 for a fast and strong bond. Here are a few close ups.
I love how they turned out. Consider making these with other trinkets to match your theme or décor. You can even wrap them up to make a cute gift for Mother’s Day, or even a fun and thoughtful house warming gift. Hmmm… which gives me another idea! Ha! Stay tuned!
