Felt holly Christmas napkin rings are an easy Christmas craft to make--great for giving as a gift or using to set your own beautiful holiday table.
I made these DIY Christmas napkin rings as my first project for the Festive Christmas Ideas Blog Hop. The theme today: DIY gifts.

I love pretty napkin rings! They're such a fun element of any beautifully set table. The nice onces can also be awfully pricey! That's why I started making my own. These Christmas napkin rings feature felt holly, and are quick and easy to make.
I used needle felted balls for this craft (here's the tutorial), but you can also make wet-felted felt balls if you don't have needle felting tools. No tools necessary for that method--just some warm, soapy water and your hands. You can also buy pre-made wool felt balls, or you could even use pre-made red craft pom poms.
Materials for Felt Holly Christmas Napkin Ring:
Cut a piece of the grapevine style floral wire approximately 30" long. I don't actually measure the wire when I make these. Instead, I wrap the wire loosely around the four fingers of my hand three times. I measured it, though, and it's always just about 30 inches.
Wind the wire around itself to create a napkin ring that looks like a miniature grapevine wreath.
Cut felt into simple holly leaf shapes. Use a lighter green embroidery thread to stitch a simple running-stitch line to add some dimension to the felt holly leaf.
Now all that remains is to assemble the felt holly napkin ring!
Use a low temperature hot glue gun to glue two holly leaves to the wire napkin ring.
Add three red felt ball holly berries to the center of the napkin ring, where the points of the felt holly leaves are glued to the napkin ring form.
That's it! Easy, right?
I absolutely love how these turned out, and I can't wait to use them on my own Christmas table this year. But they'd also make a magnificent DIY gift to make and give to friends, family, and neighbors.
