Monogram Napkin Ring Tutorial

Table decor options for the Fall season are numerous, but adding a personal touch can be what sends your table settings over the top!

Making your own napkin rings with a personal monogram is a fun craft, and you can even involve your kids. Let them make their own ring to have around their own napkin!

Here are some steps I did to make some Fall themed napkin rings using some not-so-traditional colors: peach, gold and brown.

I am not a painter at all, so I broke this down into steps that I hope help you.

For this craft I used acrylic paint, good paint brush and wooden rings I found at the craft store. You may also need a small piece of sand papers to smooth your ring before painting.

After sanding, I painted 2 coats of white.

Once dried, I began practicing my lettering I had in mind. If it helps, print out the letters in a font you like so that you can look at it for reference while you paint.

Once the letter was painted and dried, I started to add embellishments…first little acorns.

I painted the acorn with a bronze-gold paint and then painted the cap on top with dark brown.

To paint the cap on, I started with a line, and added a little bump and stem.

Once the acorns were done, I added peach-colored scalloped edging on the top and bottom. Make the scallop shape, and then fill it in.

Next, I added a few mustard colored dots for detail, and then a green stem on either side of the acorns.

Let it dry, and then spray with a clear sealer.

I hope you enjoyed these napkin rings and decide to make some of your own!
