DIY Flower Napkin Rings

When I see something I would like to purchase but then think, “I could make that!” I get most excited to create a DIY project. This DIY Floral Napkin Rings is the result of that thought. The floral napkin rings that I had my eye on in the store were going to cost me $6 each, but I bought enough flowers and floral taping from the craft shop for the same amount of money to make 8! This is an incredible deal. Making floral napkin rings on a lazy Sunday afternoon is a great way to relax.

While I love going out for a fancy (or even not so fancy) Valentine’s Day dinner, we’ve done our fair share of V-Day celebrations at home as well.

Anytime our house becomes the date destination, I always try and do a few decorations to make the holiday feel a little bit more special than a regular dinner at home.

The napkin rings can be used to add some spring to your table setting without spending a lot of money. How to start…

Supplies:
-flowers (fresh or faux) in 2-3 shapes or sizes
-greenery
–floral wire
–floral tape
–wire cutters

First, take your floral wire and bend it to make a loop that is about 2″ in diameter. Wrap the ends around the loop to secure and cut any excess wire.

Cut your centre flower so that the stem is about 1″ long, and use your floral tape to secure your flower stems to your wire.

If you have a flower head that’s droopy or won’t stand upright, you can always insert a piece of wire up into the stem and head so you can bend the flower head at whatever angle you need.

Keep securing flowers with the floral tape one at a time to either side of your main flower until it’s full enough for your liking (make sure to add some greenery between the flowers as well).

Once your flower ring is full enough, wrap the rest of the wire in tape to finish the look, and you’re ready to add in your napkin!

So pretty! If you won’t have much time on the day of your dinner, you can make this with faux flowers ahead of time or make it a little earlier in the day with fresh flowers and keep them in the fridge to help preserve their beauty until dinner.

Materials Needed:

  • Faux flowers (choose a variety of sizes and colours)
  • Floral wire
  • Green floral tape
  • Scissors
  • Napkin rings (metal, wood, or plastic)
  • Hot glue gun and glue sticks
  • Wire cutters (optional)

Instructions:

  1. Prepare Your Flowers: Start by selecting faux flowers in your desired colours and styles. Choose flowers with flat backs and sturdy stems for easy attachment to the napkin rings. You can use a variety of flower sizes and colours to create a dynamic and visually appealing arrangement.
  2. Trim and Arrange: Using scissors or wire cutters, trim the stems of the faux flowers to a length of approximately 2-3 inches. Arrange the flowers in clusters of two or three, mixing different sizes and colours for a natural look. Experiment with different arrangements until you find one that you like.
  3. Secure with Floral Wire: Once you’re happy with the arrangement, use floral wire to secure the stems together. Wrap the floral wire tightly around the base of the flower cluster, leaving a few inches of wire at the end for attaching to the napkin ring.
  4. Wrap with Floral Tape: Cover the exposed wire and stems with green floral tape to create a seamless and natural-looking finish. Start at the base of the flower cluster and wrap the tape around the stems, overlapping slightly as you go. Continue wrapping until the entire stem is covered, then trim any excess tape with scissors.
  5. Attach to Napkin Rings: Using a hot glue gun, apply a small dab of hot glue to the back of the flower cluster. Press the flower cluster onto the napkin ring firmly, holding it in place for a few seconds to allow the glue to set. Repeat this process for each napkin ring, spacing them evenly around the ring.
  6. Optional Embellishments: Once the flowers are attached, you can add additional embellishments to customize your napkin rings further. Consider adding decorative elements such as faux leaves, pearls, beads, or ribbon bows for an extra touch of elegance.
  7. Display and Enjoy: Once the hot glue has fully dried, your DIY flower napkin rings are ready to use! Simply slide a folded napkin through the ring, and arrange them on your table settings. Whether you’re hosting a formal dinner party or a casual gathering, these blooming beauties will add a touch of whimsy and elegance to any occasion.

Whether you choose vibrant blooms for a springtime brunch or rich hues for a festive holiday dinner, these floral napkin rings are sure to make a statement. Get creative, have fun, and enjoy adding a touch of floral flair to your dining experience!
