If you’re wondering how to make napkin rings, there are many simple ways to do so without breaking the bank. All you need are a few materials you can find online or at any craft store. Once you get started on your DIY napkin rings, you’ll notice they’re way easier than you think. The most difficult part is just waiting for them to dry, which can take a while.

Step 3: (Optional) Paint over the edges of the geode slice to give it a cohesive look. If you prefer a more rustic feel, you can leave it as is.
