3 Steps To Make Fall Napkin Rings

Are you looking for a simple DIY decor project for fall? How about some easy napkin rings using felt and Essentials by Ellen dies? Carly is here today to share how she created a boho napkin ring in just 3 steps!

I love fall, I love crafting and I love hosting get togethers for my friends & family so I can’t believe I haven’t tried making napkin rings before. I set out to make a traditional “ring” from felt and decorating it with little pumpkins but inspiration struck and I ended up with this instead…

I replaced the ring with a string that ties around the napkins and I decorated it with felt leaves and a simple tassel. What do you think?

Here’s how it came together…

Step #1: make stitched leaves

I die cut felt leaves with the Essentials by Ellen Leaves set. Then I added a very simple stitched detail line with custom colored thread. For the thread I used some Copic markers to color white embroidery thread and let it dry just a few minutes before using it to stitch.

Step #2: make a tassel

There are a bunch of easy ways to create a little tassel but I made this one with a skein of embroidery floss. With the paper wrappings still in place, I carefully pulled out a bit of floss and cut two pieces, about 12 inches each. I folded the skein in half and used one of the floss pieces to wrap around and create the top of the tassel. Then I removed the paper wrappings and cut the ends of the floss to create the strands of the tassel.

Step #3: thread leaves & tassel

I used the second piece of floss to thread the leaves and the tassel together. That created my napkin ring that was really more like a string, LOL! I tied it around my rolled napkin & ta-da!

I love how it turned out and I’m planning to make more for Thanksgiving. I might also try some traditional felt rings for Christmas 😉

Thanks for stopping by!
