I’m so pleased to have Heather from Setting for Four here for today’s Feature Friday! Please give her a fabulous welcome. Hello Sand and Sisal readers! Today I have a Holiday DIY to share with you – these were so much fun to make, I hope you’ll make some too!
I love to create inviting tablescapes for the holidays. Adding beautiful napkins with decorative napkin rings to the table is a fabulous way to make your family and guests feel special!
This Christmas I’m decorating with a blue color palette, so when I saw these sparkly beads and mother of pearl shell beads I knew they would be perfect for my holiday table!
I whipped up these gorgeous Beaded Shell Napkin Rings in no time at all!
Wire head pins
Small Silver Beads
Needle nose pliers
Create a beaded charm:
Add one small bead and one jewel bead to a wire head pin.
Create a loop in the wire to secure the beads.
Create the napkin ring:
Cut the wire 7 inches.
Create a loop at the end of the wire, with the pliers, to hold the beads on.
String the small beads and the shell beads in any pattern you like. I love the shape of these shell beads and the mother of pearl color!
Add the beaded charm last.
Create a loop in the wire. Don’t completely close this loop!
Hook both loops into each other to create a closed circle.
(Make sure both loops are completely closed to secure all the beads)
Now you have a gorgeous handmade beaded napkin ring!
This is a great gift idea too: teacher gifts, hostess/neighbour gifts or stocking stuffers!
I hope you enjoyed my DIY Shell Napkin Ring tutorial!

I’m making a bunch of these for my Christmas tree and to tie on top of holiday packages as a little decoration and gift!
Thank you so much Kim for inviting me to guest today – it’s been so much fun!
