DIY Tutorial: Black and White Striped Napkin Rings

I think some of the best and most economical ways to style a table involve napkins and napkin rings, which are also great ways to break out some DIY skills. I’m a sucker for black and white stripes, so today, I’m making my own set of napkin rings donning my favorite pattern offset with some turquoise beads. They’re an affordable, low-skill project, and I’m seriously loving the combination! – Mandy Pellegrin of Fabric Paper Glue

Step One: Begin by tying the ends of both colors onto a napkin ring – with the knots on the inside.

Step Two: Wrap the thread around the ring, alternating between the two colors. I alternated between six white wraps and three black wraps.  As you wrap one color simply wrap it around the other, unused color on the back side. Stop once you’ve covered about an inch of the ring and set aside.

Step Three: Use a needle to thread several beads onto a separate piece of embroidery floss.

Step Four: Center the beads over the section of the ring that you’ve already wrapped, and secure on each side of the wrapped thread with a small piece of washi tape.

Step Five: Tie the beaded string around the ring on the back, and trim the ends.

Step Six: Now finish wrapping until you’ve covered the entire ring. Finish off by tying the strings on the inside.
