My favorite source for napkin rings, Pier 1, is long gone…*sniff*.

With an upcoming Monday Morning Blooms post

featuring sunflowers, I was in need of sunflower napkin rings for my table.

Sometimes necessity is the mother of invention,

I assembled 6 napkin rings with a hands-on time of less than 20 minutes!

In addition to the hands-on time, you’ll need to allow for drying time for the adhesive,

which takes 24 hours to cure.

I found this set of brooches on Amazon and thought it would be fun to have an assortment

of sunflowers blooming to mix and match at my table!

For the napkin rings themselves,

I used this this set of brown napkin rings

to represent the brown disk of the sunflower.

The napkin rings are made of an inexpensive plastic material  (-> cheap ;)

but I thought they resembled tortoiseshell

and they have a nice flat surface for the glue to adhere to.

In addition to sunflower brooches and napkin rings,

you’ll need a pair of side cutting pliers and some adhesive;

I used E6000.

E6000 adheres to glass, plastic, metal, vinyl, rubber, brick and wood.

I used the same method as with my Bee-Jeweled Napkin Rings,

snipping off the pin clasp on the back of the brooches,

that would prevent the sunflowers from sitting flat

and prevent good contact with the glue.

One of the pins had a loop to function as a pendant so I snipped that off too.

When all the pieces were snipped off,

I placed the napkin rings on a dish towel, to keep them stationary for the glue to cure

and applied the glue the center of the pins.

Make sure you use enough adhesive for good contact but not so much that it might seep out

and be visible from underneath the pin.

 Follow the directions / precautions on the back of the E6000 and apply in a well-ventilated area.

For future use and easy cap removal of E6000, apply a little petroleum jelly to the threads of the tube before replacing the cap. #craft #DIY #tip ©homeiswheretheboatis.net

Just like in nature, I liked that some of the pins

in the assortment were buzzing with bees!

These napkin rings are easy to assemble and affordable too,

with the six napkin rings costing around $25 in total.

Use the pins and napkin rings of your choice and make them all match if you prefer.

    Thanks for the good tutorial. Your tutorials are always good. I also like how you layers your napkins. I especially like the cotton lace on the edges of the solid color one.

    Looks like a fun project. I have been looking for some summery napkin rings and these fit the bill. I am ordering supplies to make the project. Thank you for your creativity and inspiration. Yours is definitely one of the best decorating blogs out there.

    What a perfect outcome – looks way more expensive than actual. Love the takeaway of using vaseline on the tube of E6000. I definitely needed that!

    I LOVE these. Miss Pier 1 as well

    How cute these are. I think making your own is sometimes less than buying the napkin rings themselves. A little creativity goes a long way. They look fabulous with your sunflower napkins.

    Such a lovely tutorial and so creative! I love them!

  11. July 28, 2023 at 10:15 am

    Very cute and clever Mary! I like that they are all slightly different…I know we all miss Pier 1, such a fun store to shop and explore! Thanks for the vaseline tip, very handy!

    Your tutorials are always excellent! I love the DIY napkin rings. The ring does look like tortoiseshell, not plastic looking at all. The fact that each napkin ring is different makes them so interesting. I know they are perfect for our upcoming sunflower post! Happy Friday, Mary!

    Mary ~ aren’t these just so cute ! I love to introduce sunflowers in August and early September right before the pumpkins and leaves start making their appearance. These will be perfect for our table in our kitchen. And I’m kind of housebound with Lyme disease so I need crafts and projects to occupy my time. Take care and enjoy the rest of summertime. Hugs, Dorinda

    Mary, these are just the cutest! I’m not crafty, but I just might need to try my hand at this project. I love the tortoise look of the napkin ring, and buzzing bees on sunflowers make my heart sing. You are so clever and never fail to inspire! Looking forward to Monday Morning Blooms!

    I love love love this craft project. The tortoise shell napkin rings really make it. You are so talented and clever. Now I’m on the hunt for just the right mix of things to make some fun napkin rings and napkins to go with whatever “buggy” theme I can come up with!

  22. July 30, 2023 at 1:01 pm

    How cute the napkin rings turned out, Mary! I got out my sunflower decor after I came back from
    Colorado. My plates are from Pier1 and I was telling my sister how much I miss that store. I hope you’re having a wonderful weekend! It’s soooo hot 🥵 here. 😘

    Mary, these napkin rings are absolutely precious! I adore sunflowers with their bright yellow color. They are such a happy flower. You always share the best DIY projects! Happy Monday!

    Hi Mary! I’m with everyone else. I absolutely love this project. I love tortoise, I love sunflowers and I love using napkin rings on pretty tables capes. I pinned this and I will be using your tutorial for inspiration down the road. Thank you. You always have such beautiful tables and great ideas to go with it. Have a fantastic day. XO- MaryJo
