DIY Placemats Update
After making the DIY Placemats, I became addicted. I decided to add some color, and then another idea was sparked.
How To Make Use of Scrap Fabric
Ok, so here’s what happened! I’ve said it before “I’m a waste, not kind of girl”! Therefore, when I saw all the stiff burlap scraps, I immediately started to figure out a use for them.
Here’s what I came up with.
DIY Napkin Rings Tutorial
I decided to make some cute napkin rings for my Spring Tablescape.
Here’s all you need for this project.
- Thrifted Napkin Rings or cheap dollar store napkin rings
- Stiff Burlap Scraps – see tutorial here
- Hot Glue Gun & Glue
- Jute Twine
- Spray Paint – Soft Pink & Green
Determine Your Pattern
First, decide what you want your flower to look like. The possibilities are unlimited.
I just started cutting out my design free hand.
I cut two petals and two leaves for each napkin ring. One petal was approximately 2 inches in diameter, and the second was 1 1/2 inches. You can also be creative here, depending on how large you want your flower.

How To Assemble Petals
In order, the form the petals, pinch the petal on two sides and add a drop of hot glue to hold them securely.
I love using the Ryobi Cordless Hot Glue Gun because I’m not tied to an electrical outlet.
Note: I recommend using these hot glue finger protectors for this project. I learned the hard way how easy it is to get burnt fingers.
To form the center of the flower, I decided to use buttons from my collection.
Place a drop of glue between the two petals aligning the pinched sides opposite each other. Then add the button by applying another dot of glue to secure it. Press firmly to be sure all layers are connected.

Prepare The Napkin Rings
Now it’s time to prepare your thrifted or cheap napkin rings to attach the flower.
I am using wood napkin rings I purchased for $1.00 at a thrift store. The wood is smooth, and I was concerned that the bond, with hot glue alone, would not hold up to tugging napkins in and out of the ring.
Therefore, I added jute twine around the ring as a base for attaching the burlap flower.
How to Assemble The DIY Napkin Rings
After wrapping the jute twine around the napkin rings a few times, use hot glue to attach the leaves to the ring.
Finally, add the flower by adding a generous drop of hot glue to the napkin ring and hold it in place until secure.
Bend the leaves and flower petals to a desired shape.
I love these unique napkin rings and will definitely make more for other tablescape ideas.
I’m thrilled with the cute detail,s and hope you enjoyed the DIY Burlap Napkin Rings tutorial.
