Begin making your own napkin rings by cutting burlap to desired length, and then add beads so that they follow the length of the burlap; end by stitching the ends together. For the first project, you need burlap, scissors, assorted size beads, a sewing machine (for sewing straight), a hand sewing needle, thread and tape measure.Continue Reading
Cut a piece of burlap to 7.5 inches length and 2.5 inches width. Fold a quarter of an inch for all edges and saw them in place. Thread the needle and insert the first bead at one of the corners. Continue to add and stitch beads, stopping 1.5 inches away from the end of the burlap. Repeat on the other side. Fold one end over the other and stitch or glue them together. Add beads to the folded area.
Alternatively, take a yoga mat and cut out a piece that is 7.25 inches long and 2 inches in diameter. If you want different colors for the napkin rings, you can paint the yoga mat. Beginning at the top end, start placing the studs by poking one of their prongs in.
Add studs until you reach the end of the line. Bend the mat to make a ring, then poke the remaining side of each prong through the material. Fold all the prong. This closes the napkin ring. Make sure you place a lot of pressure when pressing the prongs down, to avoid them getting caught in your linens. For this project, make sure you have a yoga mat, brass pyramid studs, scissors, a pencil and a ruler.Learn more about Crafting
