Golden Holiday Napkin Rings

Inexpensive sets of napkin rings at the Dollar Store, TJ Maxx, Home Goods, or Marshall's are a short-cut way to have elegant home decorations for the holidays. Simply embellish with sparkling metallic threads to transform them into high-end accessories that look like they came from a boutique. They make great hostess gifts and can be made in quick time.

Materials needed:

  • set of fabric-covered napkin rings (we found this green set at the Dollar Tree)
  • Kreinik Custom Corder
  • Kreinik 1/8" Ribbon in 002L Chromo Gold (you will need about three 10m spools, depending on how many napkin rings you make)
  • Kreinik Silk Serica color 4206 Dark Sage, one spool
  • Kreinik Japan #5 in 002J Gold
  • Crewel needle


  1. Make cording using the 002L 1/8" Ribbon and 4206 Silk Serica, following the instructions that come with the Custom Corder. (Note: if the ends ravel, secure them with FrayCheck™ or clear tape)
  2. Wrap the cording around your fabric napkin ring, and couch, or tack down, with large cross stitches using the Japan #5 thread and your crewel needle.
  3. Repeat for each napkin ring.
