These laser cut Thanksgiving napkin rings are perfect for dressing up your holiday table! Give them a wash with Antique Mod Podge for an aged look.
Hi everyone! It’s Ashlee from My So Called Crafty Life, and today I am here to share a fun and easy DIY perfect for this year’s Thanksgiving celebration!
I found these adorable laser cut Thanksgiving napkin rings at Michaels a little while ago, and thought they would be great to jazz up our Thanksgiving table settings. I loved the laser cut “Be Thankful” at the top and the thickness of the rings.
They are really cool on their own, and I know there are so many things you could do to dress them up. I chose a simple painted look for this bunch.
DIY Thanksgiving Napkin Rings
Here’s What You Need:
- Wooden napkin rings (these were found at Michaels)
- Craft paint in your choice of colors
- Antique Finish Mod Podge
- Paint brushes
The first thing you need to do is wipe off any dust on your wooden napkin rings.
Carefully paint a light coat of your white paint onto the ring part of the front of your rings. Let the paint dry and then flip over your rings and paint white on the backside of your rings and let them dry. I wanted a lighter wash of colors for my napkin rings, so I only used one coat of paint.
Next, you are ready to stripe your colors. I used a pumpkin orange, an avocado green, and a gold for my stripe accents. Paint stripes on the front of your rings, let the paint dry and then repeat on the other side.
Then you can paint the “Be Thankful” parts of your rings with accent colors. Let the paint dry before moving on.
To finish off your Thanksgiving napkin rings and give them an antique vintage feel, paint the rings with Mod Podge Antique Finish Medium. You will need to use several coats, letting them dry in between coats.
This sounds daunting, but it goes really fast because you can paint the medium on each of your rings and by the time you get back around to the first, it is dry enough to put another coat on.
I love how my Thanksgiving napkin rings turned out! They have an antique washed look to them but are also a little modern with the bold stripes. This project was so easy to make, and was really quick to whip up.
You can finish a batch of these in under an hour. They look great in a table setting. I know my family is going to love these too come Thanksgiving dinner! I hope you all will give this easy diy a try! I think you’ll love it too!
