Simple Fall Napkin Rings

Tonight I thought I would  repeat an old post where I shared a project that was so easy. Probably a lot of you are planning your Thanksgiving tables and these are just some simple napkin rings I made when I couldn't find any I liked in the stores.

I went to Michaels to see if I could find anything to use and they had these wooden rings for only $1.49 each. Perfect!

First thing I did was paint the rings with my Venetian Gold craft paint and let them dry.



 I wanted to attach an acorn to each ring so I went to Hobby Lobby to get a hot glue gun. Then while standing there with a glue gun in my hand I saw these glue dots so I bought them instead.

Best decision I ever made. These were so easy to use and no burned fingers. Just place the glue dot on the ring and then stick the acorn on and done.

 Just the look I wanted.




Simple and cheap and love the look.

Hope this gives you some inspiration for your fall table.
