This is a very simple project that really dresses up a Fall table. I was looking to add some autumnal elements to my table setting without going out and purchasing a full set of napkin rings that could only be used this time of year. I like to change it up for every dinner party and so my interest was flexibility. As I was cooking a whole meal, I also had very little time.I started with basic silver napkin rings from Pier 1. I liked that the wrap design made them look different on one side than the other, allowing for more versatility down the road. I also wanted something with thin enough strands to be able to wrap decorative elements around, without the wires being obtrusive.Next I found some inexpensive burlap leaves at Michaels with covered wires ends. I was using a burlap tablecloth, so these would be perfect.Next I found brick red acorn bits with similar wired ends. These come in packages of eight for just a few dollars.I gathered my pieces together and did some overlapping to see what layout I wanted. I decided to go with one acorn nestled over a leaf, and wrapped the wires around the centermost section of the metal rings.To avoid seeing clumps of wire, I just wrapped each piece twice around the rings and tucked the extra wire around the back. This would make them easier to take apart for their next use, as well.And there you have them on my autumn table – unique napkin rings that match my theme, for next to nothing in time and money to make.
