I don’t know where I first saw these little terracotta pot napkin rings but when I did, I thought they were so ME! So I bought a pack of these little mini (2 1/2 inch) terracotta pots when I spotted them at Hobby Lobby a few months ago. A pack of 6 of them was only $2.99. To turn the pots into napkin rings, you have to drill a hole in the bottom of each pot. Leo used his drill and a 1/2 inch bit to gingerly drill out the holes, and then he used a sanding bit on the Dremel to smooth the edges of the holes.
To give the napkin rings an aged appearance, I white-washed them with watered down acrylic craft paint (2/3 water to 1/3 paint.) If the paint goes on too thickly, just hold the pot under running water and scrub off some of the paint. Allow to dry.
I just couldn’t stop taking photos of them. I was thinking that it would be so easy to write names on them to serve as place cards.
