These Christmas napkin rings are so easy to make! We used pine cones, jingle bells and wooden beads to make an awesome set of DIY napkin rings!
Okay, who’s in the mood for a quickie?
Oh, good lord, madam, not that kind of quickie!
I mean a quick and easy craft for your next dinner party!
Handan and I were preparing for a small dinner party this past Saturday when she got the notion into her head that we needed napkin rings.
Rings, mind you.
Apparently the buffalo plaid place cards we had just made last month wouldn’t do.
Oh, no, she wanted something new.
Yeah, that’s cool. New DIY napkin rings a couple of hours before the guests arrive. Don’t worry about the Sultan’s Delight I’m making, I’ll craft instead!
But if my babes wants new Christmas napkin rings 3 hours before the party, my babes gets new Christmas napkin rings 3 hours before the party!
We had all the materials we needed on hand, and she knew exactly what she wanted.
She assured me it would be over quickly…
She knows best when it comes to these things.
I know nuthin‘
So out came the supplies from her infinite room of crafting paraphernalia…

Pine Cone Napkin Rings
- Leather cord
- Oval wood beads (with a 3/8 hole) or round wood beads (with a 3/8 hole) or small Christmas ornaments
- Jingle bells
- Small pine cones
- Glue gun
- Silver and red glitter glue sticks
We got our jingle bells and some of the pine cones from a couple of Dollar Store wreaths we had on hand.
That’s a lot of crafting supplies for a dollar! This is one of those cases where the parts are definitely more valuable than the whole – especially when you don’t have time to go shopping!
I started by cutting the leather cord into 12-14 inch lengths. With a silver glitter glue stick loaded into my trusty glue gun, I applied a small blob of glue to the bottom of a pine cone.
I then stuck the end of the cord into the glue and let it set.
I repeated this with half of the other cords and pine cones. With the other half, I attached jingle bells to the ends instead of pine cones.
Handan took a look at my work and approved, but suggested it might look better if a added a bead of red glitter glue around the silver glitter glue.
Hey, if my babes wants red glitter glue around the silver glitter glue, my babes gets red glitter glue around the silver glitter glue!
Who am I to say no?
Okay, look, I told you this was a quickie, and I wasn’t kidding! At this point, I was almost done. All that was left was to thread the cord loop through a bead.
For some I used one bead, and for others I used two.
See? Couldn’t be simpler! That’s it!
I slipped the leather ring around the napkins and tightened!
And you don’t need to make these with beads!
Do you like those peacock plates? They are my favorite!
