DIY Napkin Wreath


Have you noticed how pretty party paper napkins have become?  I almost feel like wall papering a room with them!

I see them in the dollar store and super markets and I am taking full advantage of it in my decorating.  This “DIY Napkin Wreath” is one of the easiest wreaths I have ever made (see instructions below).

It’s just so fluffi-fied.

St. Patrick's Day Wreath

The best part, is that you can make a wreath using napkins for any occasion, including all holidays.

The possibilities are endless.  I want to make a rainbow one!

If you don’t want to take a trip to the dollar store, you can find the napkins HERE.  You can also find the foam base HERE.

Easy Napkin Wreath for St. Patrick's Day

Here’s how I made it:


12 inch foam base

1-2 packages of paper napkins (also located at dollar store)


ribbon or beads to hang it

sign in middle is optional (mine was from a previous project)


Place the foam base on a flat surface with a towel under it.

Using one napkin at a time, open the napkin up and stick a knitting needle (or other long thin stick like a small screw driver) into the center of the napkin without puncturing the napkin.

Then dip the point into a little glue before you stick it into the wreath.

I started at the top and put 2 napkins per row.  I inserted it about 1 inch deep.  I didn’t put napkins into the sides of the wreath because I only had 1 package of napkins.  If you want to cover the sides too, you will need another package of napkins (2 should do it).  No need to cover the back because you want it to lay flat when you hang it up.

I stuck my sign in the center and added a little glue to it.

Lastly, I hung the napkin wreath with 1 strand of green beads by looping the strand through it self to end up with one end of the necklace to hang.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day, friends…I wish you all the luck in the world!

    Hi Julie:
    I’m having a St. Pat’s dinner and thought this wreath was so nice. Not sure if I can do it like you, but will attempt it. My Valentines dinner got snowed out, so I’m moving it to St. Patrick’s.
    Thanks for the idea.

    Cheers, Bette
