Napkin Rings for Any Party or Theme Easy Tutorial

For my 50s dinner party, I wanted to make napkin rings that would stand out and also serve as place setting cards for my table. 

But I am pretty frugal in that I don't want to spend money on something that I will only use once or twice.  So in thinking about my dilemma and walking around the craft store, I came upon a great idea.

I found these napkin rings at Hobby Lobby.  They come 8 in a package and are labeled "colonial style".  I really like this style because it works PERFECTLY for the napkin rings I plan to make.

I then spray painted mine black.  That's a pretty universal party accent color.
Although I do plan to make a white set too.

I then cut some patterned paper that matches my party theme into 3/4 inch by 5 3/4 inch paper strips.  (The pattern part only needs to be 5 1/2 inch, but you need a little to tuck under when securing your ring.)

You can use purchased pattern paper if you want.  I wanted to put Names on mine so I printed out paper and made the name 2 inches long so it showed on the front of the napkin ring.

Wrap your paper around the wooden ring.  It should just fit inside the notched area of the Colonial Style.

Put a little bit of glue on the underside and secure the paper ring together.

Now you have a set of interchangeable napkin rings that will fit any party theme or color scheme.

When you're ready to change, just remove the paper strip and use new paper!
