Supplies

  • 5 Wood Round Beads 1-in
  • Naturally Wired vine wrapped wire
  • White Paint Pen
  • Several toothpicks
  • 2 pink pony beads
  • 2 green pony beads
  • 2 yellow pony beads
  • 2 purple pony beads
  • 2 light blue pony beads
  • Hot glue gun

Craft Smart paint:

  • Light Yellow
  • Apple Tart
  • Grape Taffy
  • Pink
  • Pale Blue
  • White

Instructions

  • Paint each of the wooden beads with each of the Craft Smart colors except for the white. Repeat for a second coat.
  • Use a white paint pen to decorate some of the beads. Use a toothpick to add tiny polka dots and the handle end of a 4 Round paintbrush dipped in paint for larger polka dots.
  • Place a cardboard tube on the work surface, standing up. Put a toothpick through the bead’s hole and rest it on the end of a cardboard tube so that the bead is suspended. Apply a coat of Triple Thick Gloss Glaze. After it’s dry, repeat for another coat.
  • Use wire cutters to cut the vine wrapped wire into five 4-inch lengths. Insert into the hole of the wooden bead and bend the ends so that the bead won’t fall off. Add a dot of low temp hot glue to the ends and quickly twist the end so that the glue will hold down any frays.
  • Place a pony bead (match the colored pony beads with the colored wood beads) on the work surface and add a dot of hot glue into the hole of the pony bead.
  • Poke the end of the vine wrapped wire into the pony bead. Repeat on the other end of the wire and for all the napkin rings.
  • Wrap napkin ring around napkin, bending the vine wrapped wire to fit your napkin.
