Easy Beaded Napkin Rings

This past weekend, I treated my husband to a pre-Thanksgiving meal.  I had a few recipes I am going to be sharing here on the blog in the coming weeks, and rather than make things one at a time, I thought – why not do it up right?  It was a rainy weekend.  We had no plans.  A day with some football on TV and a turkey in the oven sounded really nice.

So I baked, I cooked, and I dressed up the table.  I even got out the nice napkins… and realized, I have no napkin rings.  So to match the gorgeous blue candle I was using as our centerpiece, I raided my bead stash for a quick and simple set of beaded napkin rings.

What you will need:

18-gauge wire (in the beading section of most craft stores)
Beads you love in varying colors, shapes, sizes
Wire cutters

I cut off 20″ of wire.  I used my pliers to make a small ring at the end – so the beads won’t fall off.  Then, I just threaded them onto the wire randomly.

When I was done, I curled the other end of the wire too – and then wrapped the wire 3 times.  The easiest way to do this is to find something round, and wrap it around.  I just used a glue bottle!

That’s it!  It took me about five minutes to make each one.

It made a great addition to our little table.  Stay tuned – I’ll be sharing some of my recipes here soon! :)
