St. Patrick’s Day Placemats and Napkin Rings

Sharing is caring!


I have to admit, I was really excited about making St. Patrick’s Day placemats and napkin rings, because all I had to buy to make this project was two spools of ribbon!

1 Ribbon Boutique 7/8 inch x 15 ft Roll Glittery Gold
1 Ribbon Boutique 1.5 “ x 3 yd Roll Natural

Plus I used the following items that I already had from previous projects
St. Patrick’s Day 2015 Decorations
Easter Burlap 10” x 10 yards
Modge Podge


This time I cut the Burlap to 16 inches wide because I felt like the 18 inch wide placemats I made for Easter took up too much room on the table. Next I took a paint brush and put a layer of Modge Podge around the edges of each placemat to prevent fraying. I allowed these to dry overnight.


I cut 6 lengths of the Glittery Gold ribbon 9 inches long for the small bows
1 also cut 3 more 1 inch lengths pieces that I then cut in half lengthwise to make a tie for the bow. I made a loop with two pieces hanging down that I used the 1 inch piece to tie together with the hot glue gun. Once I had my 6 bows made, I glued a bow onto a four leaf clover for each placemat. I then glued a four leaf clover onto each placemat being careful not to use much glue on the burlap.


Then I cut 6 twelve inch lengths of the Natural ribbon for the Napkin rings. I used the hot glue gun to glue them into 1 ¾ inch rings gluing them about 4 times from the beginning of the loop until the end of the length of ribbon. Then I glued a small hat onto each of the rings to complete each napkin ring.


This project only cost about a little over $4.00 because I had already purchased everything I needed for other projects.


This project was really fun because I didn’t expect to make it. It kind of happened by accident!
