Whimsical Spring Napkin Rings

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.

How to Make Whimsical Spring Napkin Rings

Supplies:

Gather your supplies. The steel rule dies can cut through thick materials like denim and felt (and even thicker materials like leather and metal).

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.
