Thanksgiving is coming and this year we actually get to enjoy the holiday! I’m so excited! Last year we were in the depths of planning a little girl’s black and white 1st birthday party and the year before that we hosted all our family, but I was VERY pregnant…as in I was induced the very next day on Black Friday.
So this year I’m looking forward to hanging out, eating pie and apple french toast, and just taking it easy.
BUT I do love Thanksgiving and having alllllll the people around the table, so of course I wanted to make some new DIY napkin rings. I loved how the simple wood napkin rings turned out last year, that I challenged myself to come up with something even easier this year.
Y’all, I think we did it.
You can’t really get much easier than if I told you to cut a piece of string and tie it around a napkin.
So, without further adieu, let me show you the easiest DIY napkin rings.
Supplies to make a DIY napkin ring:
1. Cut PVC
First, cut your PVC pipe into 1.5″ pieces. You can really do whatever length you prefer, however, I wanted them to just be simple and small so stuck with 1.5″.
I found it’s easiest to cut the PVC using a chop saw, but a hand saw would also work great.
Sand the cut ends of PVC using 80, 120, and then 220 grit sandpaper. I prefer these sanding blocks to single sheet sandpaper. I find that they are easier to use and grip.
Remove all sanding residue with a cloth.
Give your PVC ring a few coats of spray paint, letting it dry in between coats, and you’re done!
This project really is so simple, yet will help pull together your simple tablescape.
