Quick and Simple DIY Copper Napkin Rings
Keep your next dinner party on a budget with these fun and easy copper pipe napkin rings. In three easy steps, you can turn a few hardware store fittings into a bright and modern accent for your party table! The cohesive look of matching rings can unite mismatched linen napkins. Or use these with paper napkins and plastic ware for your impromptu backyard party to add a little something extra without over doing it. A super easy project with so many possibilities!
What You'll Need:
- Four 1 to 2" round copper pipe fittings, 2" in length
- Pipe cutter (make sure that it is large enough to accommodate you pipe diameter)
- Tape measure
- Painter's tape
Step 1: Measure and mark your pipe (if it had a price sticker on it, remove it with hot soapy water first). Here we cut our rings to 1" in length. In order to avoid sharpie marks that can't later be removed, we used painter's tape to mark our measurement.
Step 2: Cut your pipe with your pipe cutter along the taped off line.
Step 3: Sand the edges of the pipe where you cut it with fine grit sandpaper to even and smooth out the edges. This will make it much easier to slide your napkins in and out without snags!
Your rings are now ready for your napkins!
Use them any season with any style or color of napkin. If you get bored later, add a couple coats of a bold colored spray paint to give them a new life!
