How to Make Christmas Napkin Rings

This simple project can be completed with faux Christmas garland or real evergreen clippings. While real evergreen smells lovely, you might not have easy access to it. So — whether you live in the tropics, the inner city, or the mountains — you can still have a rustic Christmas tablescape!

Instructions:

1. Cut Leather Strips

Lay a sheet of scrap leather across the self-healing mat. Use the rotary cutter to cut narrow strips of leather, approximately .5″ wide and 8-10″ long. 

2. Snip Garland or Evergreen 

Whether you are using faux garland or real evergreen for the Christmas napkin rings will determine which cutting tool you’ll need. For a garland (or wreath), snip a 3″ piece of greenery using a wire cutter. For natural greenery, use gardening clippers.

Since this garland is getting cut apart, there is no reason to buy the pricey stuff. Best case? You have an old garland or wreath that is never used anymore… repurpose it as clippings for Christmas crafts!

3. Assemble the Napkin Ring 

Once the greenery is clipped and the leather strips are cut, it’s time to assemble the christmas napkin ring. First, stack the silverware largest to smallest. The two smaller utensils should create an “X” over the largest utensil.

Next, place the greenery atop the silverware and slide the leather strip under the stack.

Finally, pull the leather toward the front to tie it in a simple knot.

So simple, right?! In minutes you can create Christmas napkin rings for the whole table… and — possibly — with items from around the house! I keep scraps of leather from old coats and purses, to have on hand for small projects like this one.
