I love making little things for around the house that can also serve as gifts that people actually can use.
These cute felt floral napkin rings fall right in that camp.
I saw these leather napkin ring holders at this home decor show a while back and it inspired me to make my own.
I’m not sure about everyone else but I don’t just keep leather around and I didn’t feel like buying any just for this project.
But I did have felt! and I’m ok buying more felt because I an always use it for other stuff.
Here’s a few pointers if you want to make a set for yourself.

Materials for Felt Napkin Holders
Felt – You will need a piece of felt the size of roughly 6 inches by 7 inches to make the napkin ring roughly in the proportion you see in my photos
I used a softer felt and wished I had used a stiffer felt like the ones below. I like the dimensions of the sheets as well because you can fit 2 in one sheet.
Glue – A hot glue gun or fabric glue works best
Template – I altered my 3 of my rolled flower templates to suit this project. It is available for free in my resource library.
Instructions for Assembling the Felt Napkin Ring
Step 1 – Cut out your pieces using the template
I used my Cricut machine with the rotary blade. I believe it is possible to make with the fine point blade as well. I used a really old light grip mat so I didn’t have to ruin a new one with fibers.
This template is simple enough that you could cut it by hand. I cut the band part by hand.
Step 2 – Roll the flower and glue it to the base
Step 3 – Wrap the band around the napkin so find the location on the band where the flower should be attached.
Step 4 – Attach the flower
