If you’re looking for an easy way to add seasonal touches to your home, here is a simple but festive Fall Napkin Ring project! The pumpkin is made from Cinnamon Salt Dough, so the kids in your life might want to help too. Here’s how easy it is to make.
Cinnamon Salt Dough
Pumpkin shaped cookie cutter
Fine tip permanent marker (Mine is the Tombow MonoTwin)
Faux leaves and berries
Hot glue gun and glue sticks
Step 1: Create your salt dough pumpkins.
Follow this very simple recipe (all you need is salt, flour, and water) to make the cinnamon salt dough. Add red and yellow food coloring to color the dough orange, or you can paint them orange after baking. Roll out the dough and cut it into pumpkin shapes about 1/4″ thick. You can also use a leaf shape or any other fall themed shape you like. Bake at 275 F for about 3 hours or until they are hardened. See my Cinnamon Salt Dough post for a full tutorial.
Step 2: Use a fine tip permanent marker to write the names of friends and family members on each pumpkin.
I used the small end of a Tombow MonoTwin and wrote in Faux Calligraphy.
Step 3: Tie together a few faux leaves and berries.
I used faux lamb’s ear and some seasonal red and orange berries. I wrapped them together at the base with twine and tied a knot.
Step 4: Glue a piece of ribbon to the berry and leaf bundle.
Measure a piece that is large enough to go around your napkin with just a bit of overlap and glue the ends together to form a ring. Slide the ring over the napkin and carefully glue it to the berries. Make sure not to get glue on the napkin itself.
Step 5: Glue your pumpkin on top.
A dab of hot glue will do the trick, and your napkin ring is complete!
These are so simple to make and look beautifully festive on your fall table. Even if you aren’t planning on hosting any large gatherings this year, you can still create them for your family and add a touch of elegance to your home.
