Loopy Burlap Flowers

Of course, I also shared this Loopy Burlap Flower tutorial right here on Kenarry last month. I was thinking about these flowers the other day, and it occurred to me that if you’re looking for décor ideas for a rustic wedding or tablescape, you could affix these flowers to pieces of wood or picture frames that have the table number on them or the menu or name cards…… You get the idea!

As I shared last month, when I found out that Ideas for the Home by Kenarry® was offering their own line of natural burlap ribbon on Amazon, I was so excited! I absolutely could not wait to get my hands on this ribbon.

I told Carrie that I would like to share a few DIY projects over the summer months with Kenarry readers that incorporated the Kenarry Wide Natural Burlap Ribbon. Today’s burlap ribbon project is the second in at least four burlap projects that I have planned to share with you this summer. Kenarry, because they’re such amazing people, provided me with the burlap ribbon, but the projects and opinions are 100% my own.

How to Make a Burlap Napkin Ring

I made my burlap napkin rings using my serger and sewing machine, but you could totally make this a no-sew project by using Tacky Glue instead of a sewing machine. I’ll provide the directions for using a sewing machine and serger since that’s how I made my napkin rings.

Supplies for Burlap Napkin Ring:

Instructions for Burlap Napkin Ring:

  1. Cut the burlap ribbon. Cut a 5-inch wide ribbon of burlap that is 7 or 8 inches long.
  2. Fold the ribbon. Fold the burlap in half along the finished edge.
  3. Sew the napkin ring’s edge. Stitch the edge together, taking up a ¼-inch seam.
  4. Turn it inside-out. Turn the ribbon inside out so that the seam is on the inside.
  5. Stitch or serge all 4 layers. Line up the unfinished edges and stitch or serge together all four layers of the burlap ribbon, taking up a ¼-½-inch seam.
  6. Reveal the finished napkin ring. Turn the seam to the inside. You should now have a nice loop or ring. With the seam in the back, hand-sew a button, ribbon or decorative element onto the front of your napkin ring. I simply used a piece of twine, fed it through the weave of the burlap and tied the button into place with a knot. Trim the ends of the twine.

How to Make a napkin wring without a sewing machine

Like I said, I sewed my napkin ring because I have both a sewing machine and a serger, but you could definitely make this project using Tacky Glue. Just be sure to allow the glue to dry after steps 2 and 4. Also, if you are making your burlap napkin rings using glue, you can apply extra glue to the raw ends to help keep the burlap from fraying.

Don’t you think these napkin rings add the perfect touch of rustic glam to your tablescape? I made some frayed edge napkins out of bleached drop cloth fabric. I think the linen look of the drop cloth makes for a nice contrast with the texture of the burlap. The button I used is actually made of coconut and you can order the buttons here.
