On this page, we highlight some lovely patterns that can enhance this experience; by using napkin rings and cloth napkins, you can make your table settings much more appealing than they would be if you just stick some paper towels on the table.

These Christmas napkin rings are really similar to the solid-colored, beaded napkin rings pictured above. The main difference is that here you’re working with several different colors, which means you need to do a bit more planning beforehand — but the final result is more colorful, and opens up a wider range of themes and possibilities. If you want to make these napkin rings for Christmas, of course, we suggest using Christmas colors for your beads and wire. However, you could choose to make these in many other color schemes if you prefer.
