[left]Hola! It’s Stephanie again from Casa Watkins Living. Are you feeling the warmth of the fall season yet? I just love how the fall weather brings out the best warm colors and cozy feelings. It makes me want to gather around friends and family much more. I tend to have a lot more gatherings in the fall season compared to the summer. One of my favorite things to do is to decorate a beautiful tablescape.[/left]
Today, I’d like to share my DIY African Inspired PVC pipe napkin rings perfect for fall. I came across this gorgeous ribbon at the craft store months ago. Doesn’t it remind you of a beautiful African wax print? I was cleaning up my ribbon box when I inspired to create a DIY napkin ring using this ribbon and PVC pipes.
I had left over PVC pipe screw fittings from another project and they were the perfect shape for this project. The hexagon portion of the screw fitting added a unique feature to these DIY napkin rings. Coupled with the amazing bold and graphic ribbon, these DIY African inspired napkin rings exude a global style that is so easy to recreate.
WHAT YOU NEED
- PVC pipe screw fittings
- Your choice of ribbon
- Copper spray paint
- Permanent adhesive
The first thing you’ll want to do is to clean each of the screw fittings. You’ll be amazed how dusty and dirty these pvc pipe materials get in the hardware store. Spray each fitting with at least 2 coats of copper spray paint. Make sure to spray the inside of the ring as well! Copper is a great metallic to use in the fall. Design tip: the warm copper color looks beautiful against white napkins.
Once your pvc screw fittings are dry, use your permanent adhesive to apply your ribbon. I placed them on the screw portion of each fitting, but you can easily create a more graphic napkin ring by applying your ribbon to the opposite side. How beautiful does that ribbon look on the copper ring?!
Use your napkin rings for your tablescape this fall or group a few to make a great hostess gift! I wouldn’t mind one bit receiving a set of these DIY African Inspired napkin rings. I loved this ribbon so much that I also made a DIY planter with it too! You can see that post here.
