DIY Leather Napkin Rings

I love the look of leather. It’s an unexpected element at a dinner table that will wow your guests and add the perfect unique touch to your table setting. And, I can bet that making your very own set of DIY Leather Napkin Rings is a whole lot easier than you think!

To begin, you will need:

  • An old belt or strip of leather (I picked mine up at a local leather shop on discount because it has a slight imperfection)
  • screw post conchos (I used ¼ inch size)
  • leather hole punch (I used a craftool #07 size 13/64 drive punch)
  • hammer
  • tape measure or ruler
  • heavy duty scissors

Tools needed to create DIY leather napkin rings.

First, measure out 6 inches on your strip of leather and cut.

Next, roll your leather up to see the best place to make your hole. Using your hole punch, make a hole in one side of your leather.

Then, roll your leather up and make a mark through the first hole onto the leather underneath. Use this mark to make your second hole.

Next, roll your leather back up and align your holes. Attach your leather ends together to form a ring using a screw post concho.

Add a screw post to hold your leather circle together.

A belt or similar length of leather can produce 6 to 8 napkin rings! Don’t forget to make one for every seat at your table!
