Bring a touch of spring to your holiday with these adorable DIY Easter napkin rings. Our tutorial will help you hatch these chicks in time to decorate your table settings!
Spring is in bloom and Easter is right around the corner! So it’s time for pastel flowers, decorating eggs and all things baby animal!
Seeing baby bunnies hop through our yard brings me so much joy! As of late, I’ve been GLUED to the eagle nest cam from the National Conservation Training Center. Those little babies are so fuzzy and cute and it’s very exciting to think that someday I might see those babies flying overhead.
Nature is amazing! But for Easter, nature is probably better to watch than take home. As many times as I’ve been to Southern States and looked at the cute spring peeps and dreamt of having chickens, Kevin is always reminding me how much work they’d be. Maybe someday when our house isn’t a fixer upper?
For now, we can make our Easter table pretty with these baby chick napkin rings!!!!
The inspiration for these spring napkin rings came from vintage decorations I’ve seen in antique stores. I knew I wanted to make a whimsical craft but didn’t really have a plan. Then I spotted the perfect hue of scrubby yarn at the store and knew I had to make a chicks!
How to make Easter napkin rings
I tried a number of materials to make these Easter napkin rings, at first using wire to make legs and then wrapping them with washi tape. In the beginning I just made yarn balls, but that wasn’t very structural for the rings.
Finally, I settled on this design because the pipe cleaners were easy to work with and styrofoam balls easy to roll. The most difficult thing about the project is the hand sewing. Given the nature of the scrubby yarn, wide or ill placed stitches go unnoticed.
But the stitching firmly attaches the eyes and beak so these adorable Easter napkin rings can grace your table for years to come. Who knows… maybe they’ll become a family heirloom?
Easter Table Decor
We decorated our table with springy pastel blues and pops of yellow and white. There’s vintage china mixed with cute dishes from Anthropologie and Homegoods.
Many of the Easter decorations came from the Dollar Tree and Target, including the pottery white rabbit. It worked great with the vintage pottery rabbit vase I already had. It’s a fun mix of old and new so our little chick napkin rings feel right at home!
