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 template to suit this project. It is available for free in my resource library. You can sign up for my resource library at the bottom of this article.
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
