I made my napkin rings out of a piece of PVC pipe. I measured the width of my pyramid stud trim (1") and then I marked 4 marks on the piece of pipe:
My boyfriend cut the pipe down to size with our miter saw:
I grabbed some leftover pyramid stud trim that I got from Joann's almost 2 years ago. I had previously used it on my HomeGoods console table makeover, as well as a vase makeover.
I cut the 5 rows of studs into 3 rows:
I wrapped the long strand of studs around one piece of PVC pipe to determine the length of trim I needed for each napkin ring:
I cut 3 more strands out of the long strand for the remaining napkin rings:
I placed a vertical band of super glue on one piece of the PVC pipe (AKA napkin ring) and held the studs in place while they set up:
Note: try not to get super glue on your fingers like I did! It's SUCH a pain to get off your skin!
After the studs had set up in the super glue (a minute or two), I stretched the strand of studs out and wrapped it around the rest of the napkin ring. I placed another band of super glue at the end of the strand and held it in place until I felt like it was safe to let go (about 2 or 3 minutes). I repeated the same process 3 more times until my napkin rings were complete!
My strands weren't long enough to match up in the back so there is a little gap between them but I don't mind it! I can always turn this side to the back of the napkin :)
I waited an hour before taking the napkin rings outside to spray paint them army green:
I love how they look!
I had a hard time choosing a color for them so I may end up making a few more sets.
They're going to be perfect for our fall tablescape and possibly a few Christmas gifts ;)
