DIY Napkin Rings using Ornaments

Did you hit the after Christmas sales this year?  I did.  I wanted some new lights but they were the first things to go.  This past weekend Hobby Lobby had their Christmas marked down to 90% off.  It was pretty picked though but there were some things left.

When I came across some miniature ornaments that weren’t really Christmassy, I knew what I wanted to do with them!  I have been trying to plan a tablescape for Hunter’s 18th birthday and the western thing was just the way to go!

I first took this metal ribbon and cut it in strips.  I used another napkin ring to determine the length. After bending the ribbon into a circle, I used some glue to connect the ends.  I used clothes pins to hold them secure until they dried as seen in the picture below.

While they were drying, I took the small ornaments and jiggled the hook until it slipped out.

After the ribbon was dry, I used hot glue to attach the ornament.

  1. What a great idea! These are very nice!

  2. Very cute! I love your creativity and certainly love the price!

    Have a great day.

  3. Love it; I'm almost certain I saw those western ornaments on College Drive this week!

  4. Very clever...they turned out great! Yes, I hit a few sales and they were quite picked over but I found a few things for next year. Now I am working on white sales. Marshall's has some terrific deals!


  5. Tammy, how great those look. Sounds like the beginning of a great birthday party/dinner.


  6. Now that is a clever idea. They look fantastic .
    Cheers, ee

  7. Great idea Tammy to use the ornaments to make napkin rings.I am always looking for clever napkin rings and these are perfect.

  8. What a great idea. I had no idea there was such a thing as metal ribbon, but why not!? You are very clever and those are really great napkin rings. Found you through Debbiedoos!

  9. What an awesome idea!!! Stopping by to say Hi and keep up the great work :) Looking forward to more of your awesome ideas.

  10. How clever!!! It is amazing what one can do on a dollar if you only have a creative mind and hands. You surely did a great makeover on this project. My problem is, I see the stuff and know it is a good deal, but can't think of what to do with it.

  11. Cute! I haven't shopped after Christmas in years! The thing I bought at an after Christmas sale, was my lighted Christmas tree.
    You did a wonderful job making your napkin rings...they're so cute! Pat

  12. How cute is this. Love this idea. Thanks for joining TTT. Hugs, Marty

  13. How neat and so original! They are perfect!...Christine

  14. What a cute idea! What great finds!


  15. That's a great idea! We don't have HL. Where did you get the metal ribbon?


Thank you so much for all your lovely comments! I try to return the favor and visit each one of you! ~Blessings, Tammy~
