Not that long ago, I shared with you how I embellished my kitchen chair cushions with ribbon (Cushion Solution). First, I’m happy to report that although these are the most used chairs of the house, that ribbon has held up very well!
For a while, I had some of that left over ribbon in my kitchen junk drawer, and was planning on rolling it and storing it in my ribbon jar (Storing Left Over Ribbons). But then I thought again…. and came up with these cute little Ribbon Napkin Rings to complete my kitchen table setting. The whole project cost less than $7, and I had so much fun making them!
I purchased 4 sets of metal D-shaped Belt Rings (they come in various sizes, so good thing I had some sample ribbon with me) and some matching green thread, and got to work.
I am no sewing expert, so in order to make sewing easier on such a tiny piece or fabric, I first I ironed one side of the ribbon folded at about 1/4 inch (about 6 mm) to keep that end in place while sewing.
I placed 2 belt rings through the ribbon and sewed at about 1 inch. I then cut to size – my napkin rings are about 7 1/2 inches long (about 19 cm) finished size.
I then turned the ribbon around (so that the good side would show when placed around a napkin) and ironed at about 1/5 inch (or 5 mm) and then again another 1/5 inch make a straight crease. I sewed that part too. I made four of them.
