Simple DIY Wooden Bead Napkin Ring

Dec 19

For my Christmas table decor (read here) this year I have totally stripped down my colour palette and aesthetic. Neutral and simple is the name of the game.  These simple wooden bead DIY napkin ring holders complete the look – they’re as simple as they are beautiful.  It will blow your socks off how incredibly easy these are to make, and they look incredible. Best part – they can be used for any occasion! If this project seems a bit too easy for my more ambitious readers, perhaps try whittling the beads yourself out of whatever lumber you have handy. I’ll be over here with a nice glass of wine. HA!


  1. Large wooden beads
  2. Leather lace
  3. Scissors


  1. Take leather lace and slide through hole in wooden bead
  2. Tie a knot in either side of the string, leaving a little extra lace after the knot (cut to desired length)
  3. Slide over napkin and pull tight
  4. Done!!  Can you even believe how super easy that was!

    Bead napkin ring is so simple and sweet looking, and your holiday table is inspirational! Help ! Having trouble finding beads that allow the thickness of double leather to squeeze through. found beads at my local craft store, no go, ordered beads online , nope. 18mm beads with 4mm opening not working. Do you happen to know the dimensions of your bead? There are 25-30mm beads with 10mm opening which is extra large openings, Im thinking the leather will not hold the shape if its that loosely strung .
    Detailed information really helps us struggling crafters/ followers save time. Maybe you custom drilled your bead holes????

      Hi Julie, I’m not sure of the bead dimensions, but I bought a multi-pack of beads from Michaels, and used the largest size that came in the container. The product is called “Value Pack Beads” (7.9oz/224g) from a company called “Bead Landing”. Hope this helps, and good luck!
