I am all about easy DIY décor ideas, especially cheap table setting ideas that bring more fabulousness to a holiday table. We’re all busy, so quick and easy, but high-impact DIY projects are my absolute favorite finds. I made the cutest easy DIY Thanksgiving napkin rings from Martha Stewart (I love Martha!) this year for my Thanksgiving table. I just loved the way they turned out, and am excited because I just found a new Martha Stewart DIY napkin ring idea to try out next (see more on that below).
Here are my DIY tissue paper flower napkin rings from this Thanksgiving:
All you need is tissue paper and narrow gage wire. You fold the paper like a fan and secure with a piece of the wire.
The look of the flowers can be customized as well by cutting the tips more round (for a fluffier mum-style look) or more pointy (for a more dahlia-like look). You can also make the flowers more full by increasing the number of sheets of tissue paper you use.
The flowers take their form by carefully separating the sheets. When done, you wrap the attached wire around a rolled napkin. It’s as easy as that!
Here is the newest DIY napkin ring idea I just saw today, using ribbons to make a similar DIY floral napkin ring:

I can’t wait to give these ones a try next! This looks like a simple way to incorporate a pop of color for any holiday table (the mint pictured above would be pretty for Easter table décor, wouldn’t it?). It’s also a great way to use up some of that random ribbon you have in your craft closet. Get the instructions from Martha Stewart here.
