This adorable, summery DIY napkin ring craft couldn’t be easier…
You can finish this DIY napkin ring summer craft in less than 5-minutes…and enjoy the cute results at dinner tonight, or a party you plan to host over the weekend.
Whatever the occasion, these fun little DIY napkin rings will add a little fun to the table! And you won’t BELIEVE what they’re made from!
Ready to see how to make some of this cuteness yourself?! They’re so easy that I really shouldn’t even call this a tutorial.
Here’s a less than 2-minute video tutorial for you that will show you all you need to know!
Here’s what you’ll need to make this fun summer craft:
Supplies Needed for Easy Summer DIY Napkin Ring
- wire snips
- sanding sponge (medium grit)
- super tiny Phillips screwdriver – (This is a great kit to have for small tasks. We use ours all the time)
- fun sunglasses – here are the ones we used (pineapples) or (flamingos)
How to make your DIY napkin ring
The video tutorial shows you how it’s done, but here are the steps in case you prefer to read:
1. Pop out lenses.
For the glasses I used, I was able to just pop the lenses right out of the sunglasses. And most plastic sunglasses will be the same. Just push, usually from the outside of the glasses toward the inside (the side that sits closest to your face).
2. Remove arms.
Use a super tiny (usually Phillips’ head) screwdriver to remove the arms of the sunglasses.
3. Use wire snips to cut the bridge of glasses.
You could certainly use other tools to cut the sunglasses. I just happened to have some wire snips handy, so that’s what I used. Try to snip as close to the circular eye portion of the glasses as possible (cut as much of the bridge piece away as you can).
4. Use a sanding block to grind down sharp edges.
You’ll likely be left with a bit of a jagged edge after cutting your sunglass frames.
Take a sanding sponge and knock down those jagged edges. If you don’t have a sanding sponge, you can try a sanding block or regular sandpaper. I’d recommend a medium to heavy grit.
Or party-time, whatever the case may be! Grab a napkin and stuff through your new DIY napkin ring!
