{DIY} Easter Napkin Rings

I recently cleaned out and organized my craft cabinet and man...that was an EYE-OPENER!! It turns out that I buy waaay too much craft stuff that NEVER EVER gets used! Who knew??? (well according to my husband HE knew...ha ha ha)! Sooooo...I'm hosting Easter this year and decided that I was going to make all the decorations using only what I already had on hand. So Michael's PLEASE stop sending me all those great coupons!!!!

I have no idea why on earth I have a TON of felt...but I do, so it's going to be featured in most of my Easter decor. The first thing I made were these cute & colorful napkin rings!

These were super simple to make and I whipped up 10 of them in less than an hour!

You will need:
felt in various colors
buttons or other embellishments
hot glue

To begin, cut your ribbon to your desired length. I cut mine about 10 1/2" long. This length allows for a large enough hole to slip a napkin into.

Then I cut out my egg shapes out of felt. I googled an egg template,printed it out on cardstock and used it to cut my eggs out. I tried to free hand them, but my eggs were all wonky so the template was easier.

Cross your ribbon over and use a dab of hot glue to secure.

Then use another dab of hot glue and attach your egg.

I have a thing for I have lots of bags of them. I thought these pretty flower buttons were perfect for spring.

Hot glue the buttons onto the eggs.

That's it! Cute little napkin rings to add some cheer to your Easter table!

I was taking the pictures for this post, staring at these cheerful little creations got me thinking...

And I thought of another fun use for them...

I might just have to whip up a few more of these little cuties!

Happy Spring!
