One of my favorite things about designing tablescapes is creating the details. I enjoy making centerpieces, place holders, table runners, napkins, and napkin rings. I’ve had my eye on all the velvet pumpkin tutorials since last year. The one that worked best for my very small velvet pumpkin napkin rings was the YouTube tutorial from HGTV.
- 1 yard of velvet
- fabric scissors
- hot glue gun and glue sticks
- 6 low cut/bootie socks
- a bread plate or saucer to use as a pattern
- Sharpie market
- 6 wired Dollar Tree leaves (not pictured- I swapped them out for the jute rope pictured below)
Cut the toe from a bootie sock, then roll it up toward the elastic ankle.
Trace around a bread plate or saucer with the Sharpie market to make a velvet fabric circle. Cut out the circle with your fabric scissors.
Stretch the velvet fabric tightly as you stuff it into the center of the sock roll. Apply hot glue to the center of the pumpkin, and squeeze it together. Insert the stick, pressing down. Apply more hot glue if needed. I tried making these a few different ways, and found this method to be most effective.
Make a napkin “ring” with the wire stem of the Dollar Tree leaf. Place a circle of hot glue on the wire side of the leaf. Attach the velvet pumpkin. I intended to use the jute rope in the materials picture to make the ring, but decided to use the Dollar Tree leaves at the last minute.
You’re all finished. Wasn’t that an easy way to achieve a trendy look?
