Easy Felt Crafts: Napkin Ring


Do you like to add extra touches to your table? Here's an easy felt crafts project showing how to make a napkin ring that is simple and inexpensive. You can easily make napkin rings for a variety of mealtimes: family dinners, holiday meals, bridal or baby showers, brunches, picnics, cookouts, breakfasts in bed or whatever the meal.

Here are four examples of the many options you can do:

Easy Felt Crafts: Napkin Ring Materials and Tools:

  • Craft felt, 9 in x 12 in, in the colors of your choice (determine the number you need by the quantity of napkin rings you need to make)
  • Beads, buttons or bells<</li>
  • Needle
  • Thread
  • Scissors<</li>
  • Ruler

The Steps for How to Make the Easy Felt Crafts: Napkin Ring:

The napkin ring in the example consists of red felt with a small, golden bell as the "button." 

Determine the size of your napkins. Fold or roll the napkin and measure around the napkin where the ring will go. Add 1.5 inches to this measurement for overlap.

The red rectangle below measures 1.5 inches by 7 inches. With this size, one 9x12 piece of felt yields nine napkin rings.

With the needle, make two small stitches below where the bell will be positioned. Here, the bell will be centered across the felt at one inch from the end.

Do not pull the end of the thread all the way to the felt. Leave a couple of inches of thread to tie to the other end after the bell has been attached.

Add the bell to the felt by pushing the needle through the shank of the bell. Attach the bell with at least two stitches through the felt and through the bell.

Knot the two ends of the thread together and trim the ends of the thread being careful to not cut the knot.

On the other end of the felt, cut a small hole for the "buttonhole." Make the hole starting 1 inch from the end.

Overlap the ends and "button" the bell through the hole. Your napkin ring is finished!

In the spring, we eagerly await the brighter sunshine and pretty colors of the budding flowers. This example could be for an afternoon get together celebrating the greens and yellows of springtime.

How about a picnic or cookout with friends? This napkin ring includes two layers of felt, blue over red, with a white button.  The napkin ring holds both the napkin and utensils ready for the party.
