Quick and simple DIY leather Boho napkin rings

November is officially upon us, which means it’s time for the month of dining! Thanksgiving is by far my favorite holiday, but it’s not the only dinner that deserves special attention. I love making our simple weeknight meals feel elevated by dressing up the table with something a little bit fancy. In hardly more time than it takes to set the table, these easy leather wrapped napkin rings are the perfect addition to your non- holiday table.

Supplies

  • Leather cording—I used 0.125 in x 4yd, and cut the pieces into eight 16”-18” pieces. It’s $7.50 not on sale, but you can almost always use a coupon at Michaels!

  • Fabric napkins— I used these buffet napkins from World Market

  • Small sprigs of greenery

 Start with the napkin folded.

Then the last step is the most fun! I went outside to my little garden and cut a few sprigs of greenery. I grabbed a variety from a boxwood, my citrus tree and two flowers, but really anything would work. I just tucked it under the leather and voila! An incredibly simple and timeless way to dress up your table.

To keep things soft and sweet, I paired the napkins with my beige stoneware, and clear depression glass goblets. Because we have such a small table, I like to keep the centerpiece practical and minimal. Here I have a pitcher of water, a carafe of wine, and a pretty butter dish sitting on a marble trivet.
