DIY Leaf Napkin Rings

Every Thanksgiving table is deserving of proper decorations and place settings. After all, for most of us, the holiday centers on a delicious meal shared by family and good friends. These leaf napkin rings are easy to make and add a splash of personality to any dinner table.

DIY Leaf Napkin Rings

What you’ll need:
– ScotchBlue™ Painter’s Tape
– Leaf template (I used this)
– Leather scraps
– Spray paint and/or acrylic paint (I used gold spray paint, and fuchsia acrylic paint)
– Paint brushes
– Ruler
– Glue gun
– Binder clips

Let’s get started…
Using leaf template, trace shape onto leather and cut out (repeat this step for each napkin ring you want to make).
