Decorative Napkin Ring (Tutorial)

A little touch of autumn flair for the holiday table with this decorative napkin ring using Penny Black's Foliage Fancy and Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko Sheet Metal.

Create this project in 8 quick steps!

Step 1:  Apply a thin coat of Matte GlazOn with a chisel tip
Brushstix to the metal sheet.  Let dry.

Step 2:  Stamp the solid leaf in Copper StazOn Metallic over the area of metal
that has been brushed with the Matte GlazOn.  Let dry.

Step 3:  Apply a thin coat of Matte GlazOn with the Brushstix
over the stamped image.  Let dry.

Step 4:  Stamp the detailed leaf in Forest Green StazOn
        directly on top of the solid leaf.  Let dry. 

Step 5:  Apply a thin coat of Creative Medium Vintage
          over the image with a Brushstix.  Let dry.

Step 6:  Trim the image with tin snips and peel away
the protective backing.

Step 7:  Create a ring with green florist wire.  Wrap copper wire around the ring
       to add a decorative touch as well as to secure the leaf to the ring.

Step 8:  Add soft bends to the design for visual interest.

Design Variations:  Autumn Wreath, Charms, Jewelry
