This simple DIy napkin ring project is ready in minutes and kids will be happy to help you put these napkin rings together.

I also wanted to speed up the process and used a glue gun and spray paint for this particular napkin ring, but if you make them with kids use modge podge or wood glue and acrylic paint, throughout the whole project. This DIY napkin ring tutorial is so simple and easy and quite self explanatory, I could just skip it altogether. I won’t though so here it is.

DIY Napkin Ring Tutorial

DIY Napkin Ring


  • paper tube (I used toilet paper tubes)
  • measuring tape
  • pen
  • cutter
  • spray paint
  • gloves
  • peanuts (halves)
  • chickpeas
  • barley
  • buckwheat
  • glue gun
  • glue sticks
  • modge podge or wood glue


  • Find the middle of your paper tubes, mark all around the tube and cut (you can go by with using a full tube but it will be harder to use when passing the napkins through)
  • Put a pair of protective gloves on and spray paint the inside and the outside of the tubes. Make sure you do this in a well ventilated area or outside. Leave to completely dry before proceeding to the next step.
  • Using a glue gun, apply a dollop of glue in the middle of the ring and glue a chickpea on.
  • Glue peanuts halves on, all around the chickpea to create a flower.
  • Apply chickpeas all around both edges, using your glue gun.
  • Fill in the gaps with modge podge and sprinkle buckwheat and/or barley (play around with the designs)
  • If you’re not sure your project will stay in place, apply modge podge over the entire area (to be honest I’m not completely happy with how the ring looks after this step as I used wood glue and was a bit too thick, next time I would just spray some colorless glue which applies thinner and more even). Allow to dry completely before using, preferably over night.
  • That’s it! Enjoy your DIY napkin ring!
