Pinspired - Beaded Napkin Rings Tutorial


I have a collection of beads leftover from some previous projects and wanted to find something fun to do with them.  I'm not a big Pinterest user but found these beautiful beaded napkin rings looking for leftover beading projects on the site.

Pretty, huh?  I thought I might be able to make something like this with my leftover (and definitely less glamorous) beads. 

 


I took the below supplies - 20 gauge bendable wire, handcrafted beads from mexico and some leftover beads from an old project to make my own version of these napkin rings. 


Using a small glass I bent the wire around the glass twice to get the shape I wanted for the napkin rings.

I'm sure there is a more professional but likely much more time consuming way to do this - but I bent the ends of my wire using square pliers to make a cute little doodle on the end.    

  

 I beaded the wire using a pattern of five little beads and one big bead - five little beads - one big  bead.  Then I continued beading until the wire was full. 






 So - here you go - my version of the beaded napkin rings.  I was really pleased with the way it turned out.  Pretty in person and would definitely dress up the table!
