It is finally starting to feel like spring around here. The flowers are starting to grow and the baby animals are being born.
With Easter around the corner, I am excited to start spring entertaining. So I partnered with Spellbinders to get us ready!
A Sunday brunch or Easter party is the perfect time to make a fun table setting with these Whimsical Spring Napkin Rings.
Spring is the perfect time for a little whimsy in your decor. There is something about the hope of new beginnings to make life a little more fun.
When I saw these woodland creature dies from Spellbinders, I knew they would be perfect for a whimsical table setting for spring.
To make the whimsical spring napkin rings a little more sophisticated, I decided to use an unexpected material: denim.
Most people think of denim for jeans and jackets. But this everyday material is so fun for home decor. Even better, you can make things out of worn-out jeans. I’m all for upcycling all kinds of things out of denim.
And with these denim woodland creatures, you can keep the rest of your tablescape neutral. A little burlap, some creamy white plates and white napkins will make this whimsical table setting perfect for a warm weather brunch or spring gathering.
Pick your favorite critters or make them all the same. Have some fun with these whimsical spring napkin rings!
How to Make Whimsical Spring Napkin Rings
- Spellbinders Platinum 6 die cut machine
- It’s a Bunny Thing steel rule die
- Bandit steel rule die
- Hey Foxy steel rule die
- Denim scraps
- I used left over denim from making our denim picnic blanket. These are a great way to recycle old worn-out jeans.
- Felt scraps
- Coverstock is 100+ lb cardstock. You could use regular cardstock, but it will not be as sturdy as the heavier coverstock.
- Hot glue gun & glue sticks
- Spray adhesive
With your scraps of denim, build a cutting sandwich with a cutting plate, the denim, the die, then top it off with another cutting plate. Run it through your machine.
Cut the decorative pieces of the woodland creatures out of felt scraps. You can cut small pieces and lay them over just the parts you need cut instead of cutting the entire die. Build your sandwich the same as before and run it through the machine.
Use hot glue to glue the denim and felt pieces together.
Cut the larger pieces of the die out with coverstock the same way you did the denim.
Using the spray adhesive, cover the back of the coverstock pieces with glue and then adhere to the back of the denim.
Cut a 1″ x 5″ piece of coverstock and roll in a circle. Glue to the ends together with hot glue.
Glue the ring onto the back of the napkin ring.
Now all that is left is to add your napkins and set the table! These fun whimsical spring napkin rings are perfect for an Easter brunch or spring party.
What is your favorite woodland critter? I can’t decide, they are all so fun for spring!
I can’t wait to use our woodland spring napkin rings. Let’s hope spring is here to stay!
