The “flower is made from the cap (cupule) of an acorn, and the petals are the scales (or arms) of a white pine pinecone. Fashioned together, they make a striking, stylized flower!
I made one napkin ring with a very simple flower and one with lots of petals. I really loved them both!
So, start saving those empty toilet paper rolls (or paper towel rolls), go for a nature walk, gather some acorns and pinecones, and let’s get started!
Pinecone And Acorn Flower Napkin Rings
All you need is a walk in the woods or a visit to Amazon to get what you need to make these beautiful rustic flowers for your napkin rings.
Here how easy it is to make them…
You can make these beautiful napkin rings for your fall or Thanksgiving table with just a few items. Here’s what you will need…
- acorns tops
- cardboard toilet paper tube
- 2-inch burlap ribbon- Please take a look at it here.
- hot glue gun and glue- Please take a look at it here.
2 Strip the Pinecone Arms
Strip the arm from the pinecone. White pine pinecones work best. I start at the bottom and give them a good tug to strip them from the center stem.
3 About The Cardboard Toilet Paper Tube
Measure the toilet paper roll. The average cardboard toilet paper tube is 8 inches long. Measure 4 inches from one side, mark it, and cut it in half.
If the tube gets a little creased, just coax it back into a round shape with your fingers. The tube will stay round when the burlap goes on top of it.
4 Cover The Toilet Paper Tube With Burlap Ribbon
Cover the halved toilet paper tubes with burlap ribbon.
Use hot glue to adhere it to the outside of the tube. Glue the seam overlapping the burlap slightly. Fold the ends of the burlap ribbon into the inside of the tube that has been dotted with hot glue.
5 Start Making The Pinecone Petal Flowers
Choose 5 larger, longer pinecone arms and hot glue them in the center of the burlap-covered napkin ring. Fashion them to look like a flower.
Adding The Acorn Caps
Hot glue an acorn cap in the middle of the pinecone arm petals to resemble the center of a flower. Choose a cap that has a small piece of the stem left on it for a special effect.
Adding More Petals To The Flower
Add more center petals.
Use shorter and thicker pinecone arms and glue them around the acorn top. You may need to cut down the pinecone arm with scissors just a tad. When gluing the additional petals, stand them up to give them a 3D effect.
Add More Pinecone Petals
Add more petals to the flower until you like how the flower on the napkin ring looks.
So easy, so pretty! Wouldn’t these look nice on your table? I hope you will give them a try.
