This might just be one of our easiest DIYs yet!
All you need is:
- wooden napking rings from Hobby Lobby
- paint (I used one of our wall paints, but you can probably use acrylic)
- steel wool pads
- mason jar
First, to create the aged look, put a few steel wool pads in a mason jar and fill it to the top with vinegar. Cover and let it sit for a few days.
While you are waiting on that, go ahead and paint your napkin rings white. Once they are thoroughly dry, use a fine grit sanding block (or paper) and scuff it up in areas all over. Once a few days has passed, dab a clean, lint-free cloth in the mixture and lightly dab the scuffed areas with the mixture then wipe away with a clean area of the cloth. It will darken and create that aged look.
I also made the cloth napkins by cutting it 20″ X 20″ then ironing each end at 1/4 inch seam and turned under twice to create a finished edge.
For a Valentine’s Day themed ring, place a shiny gold heart sticker on the ring for a cute look!
