DIY Napkin Rings

I’ve written about my love for napkin rings before... and well, I’m at it again with a new DIY.

  Napkin rings may be outdated, but I will admit, I’m a little but obsessed with them!  However, I really can’t get behind paying over $100 for a full set of napkin rings, so when this DIY came in at about $1.50 a piece, I knew it was a major win.



The best part?  They are totally customizable!

All you need is polymer clay, acrylic paint, and a gloss glaze.

Begin by softening and warming up the clay by rolling it into small, even sized balls (each ball will make a napkin ring, so size accordingly).



Then, using a wine bottle (or a clay rolling pin, if you have one!), roll the balls out into long cylinders.



Next, roll out the cylinders into long rectangles, and form a circle with each of the rectangles.



Place each napkin ring on a tray for baking, and bake for 20 minutes at 275 degrees.



Once the napkin rings are fully cooled (really, fully cooled...), apply the acrylic paint.

I wanted the napkin rings to have a "dipped" look, so I watered down the paint a bit to make it easier for dipping.




Once the paint is dry, add the gloss glaze.



Let fully dry before using.  And ta da... napkin rings!!
