Design DIY Napkin Rings in Silhouette Studio

Are you looking for something special to spice up your dinner table? How about a quick and easy DIY that still looks professional? Nothing says fancy like a nicely folded cloth napkin sitting in a ring. Follow along to learn how to design some simple, yet elegant diy napkin rings.


Cloth or Paper Napkins
Foam Squares

Instructions in Silhouette Studio:

Step 1:

Draw out a rectangle 6 inches long and 1.5 inches tall.

Step 2:

Use the line tool to make cut lines .25 inches from each end of the rectangle. Each line should be .75 inches tall. Place one line at the top of the left side and the other at the bottom on the right side.

Step 3:

Make a tag for the front of the ring. You can use a flexishape or I used my faux stitched die shape in my finished napkin rings. Lock the ratio aspect and make the tag 2 inches tall.

Step 4:

Write out the text and center it on the tag. Don’t forget to weld the text if using a script font.

I really love how these turned out! I think they really complete my Thanksgiving table display. Even though these are cloth napkins, I still like to add my Pumpkin Napkin Holder to the center of my table. You can never have too many napkins right!?!?
