DIY Napkin Rings using an old belt

Happy October!

A few weeks ago I shared our Fall Home Tour and you may have noticed these napkins rings at our table setting.  Today, I want to share how I made them with you because I think they turned out really cute.

I picked up this large belt at a yard sale over the summer because I loved the little green stripes on in.  I'm a sucker for stripes, and I liked that it was super long.  I believe this type of belt is used in hospitals to assist patients.  That may sound gross, but this belt appeared to be clean and new.

Any long belt should work fine for this project, and in fact, I think a leather belt would be cool too.

I wrapped the belt around a napkin to decide what size to make my rings and then I cut the belt into six pieces, all the same length. 

I used a hot glue gun to secure the ends together.

I like that these napkin rings can be used all year long. I'm sure I'll be using them at my Christmas dinner parties. I think they would look super cute with a small pine branch in with them. 
Here for my fall table setting I have simply tucked a piece of straw in with the napkin. 

I think they are fun and add a little something special to my place setting.

Thanks for stopping by,
