DIY Autumn Leaf Napkin Rings

Looking for an easy way to dress up your fall tables? On Tuesday, I showed you my Super Simple Fall Centerpiece. Today we're going to add to the tablescape by making some of these DIY Autumn Leaf Napkin Rings. You probably already have all you need to do this craft in your stash of fall decorations.

Here's what you'll need: paper towel tube cut into one inch sections, strips of burlap, faux or real leaves, acorns, glue gun and ModPodge.
 Start by spreading your paper towel rings with a thick coat of ModPodge.
 Adhere the strip of burlap to the paper towel ring. (You could also use a glue gun here.)
 Using your glue gun, attach a faux or real leaf to the ring.
 Finish it off with a real bundle of acorns, or mini pine cones would be cute too.
That's it! I am excited to put these adorable napkin rings to good use...even if it's just using them with paper napkins. ;-)
 After seeing how quickly these napkin rings came together, my mind is already gearing up for Christmas napkin rings. You know what they say, "If you give a girl a glue gun..." That sounds like a good name for a book.

I'm linking up at some of these great parties and

  7. very pretty and cost effective. I think I need to make some of those but may have to use faux acorns ... little to no acorns here this year.
