DIY Beaded Napkin Rings

Just a few simple supplies are all it takes to make these pretty beaded napkin rings. Make a bunch that match, or make each one unique. Coordinate the beads or make wild combinations; it’s completely up to you.

Kids can help with this project, too, but an adult should cut the wire because wire cutters (and the ends of the wire) can be quite sharp. But even little ones can string on the beads, because these are large beads and sturdy wire that are easy to handle.

Difficulty level: Beginner
Time to complete: 5 minutes per napkin ring
Age range: 10+

Things you’ll need:
Small grapevine wreaths
Gold aluminum craft wire
Wood beads
Wire cutter
Round-nosed pliers **optional

Things to do:
1. Choose the beads you want to use on your napkin ring. I like the look of two small beads, one on each side of a larger bead, but it’s up to you to design it the way you want. Thread the beads onto the wire.
2. Use the wire cutters to cut the wire, leaving a few inches on each side of the beads.
3. Place the beads where you would like them to sit on the grapevine wreath and poke the ends of the wire through the wreath and to the back.
4. Twist the wire around the wreath and tuck the ends into the wreath on the back side or inside of the ring. Use round-nosed pliers if desired to tuck under the edge of the wire.
5. Make as many different variations as you like. You can even stack a bunch on one napkin.
