Do you have a weakness when it comes to getting rid of your stuff? Do you worry that you may need that basket later or that this summer will be the one that you finally fit back into that dress? We all have our struggles when it comes to decluttering. For me, it is seeing the potential of what items could become instead of what they are. That’s what prompted me to use a plastic plate to make this wreath, turn a picture frame into a key organizer, and the tons of other projects you can find on this site. Most recently, that weakness for re-purposing let to these beautiful recycled Easter napkin rings.

- Shower Curtain Rings
- Craft Ribbon
- Roll of Burlap
- Small Styrofoam Glitter Eggs (I got my pack at the Dollar Store)
- Small Flowers & Leaves
- Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
Cut a length of craft ribbon about 16-24 inches depending on the width of your ribbon. (The thinner your ribbon, the longer the length needs to be.)
Place some hot glue on the inside of your shower ring at the place where it snaps closed.
Secure the end of your length of ribbon to the glue and begin wrapping the ribbon around the shower curtain ring.
Continue wrapping until the entire ring is covered then secure the end using hot glue. Trim off any excess ribbon.
Repeat steps 1-4 until the desired number of shower rings are covered.
- My spool of craft ribbon was enough to cover four shower rings. If you plan on doing an entire set of rings, you will need more than one spool of ribbon.
- To prevent ribbon waste, feel free to use the excess you trimmed off on another ring. When you get to the end of the length, simply glue the loose end down and begin adding more ribbon the same way you do in step 2.
Cut a piece of burlap roughly 5” long from your roll.
Fold the unfinished sides to the middle and secure with hot glue.
Next, fold the finished sides to the middle and, again, secure with hot glue.
Flip your burlap piece over and glue 2 glittered eggs to it as pictured.
Next, glue one of your leaves to that the stem rests between the 2 eggs.
Lastly, attach a small flower to your burlap with hot glue.
Repeat steps 6-11 until you have the desired number of burlap adornments to match your rings.
Glue all of your burlap adornments to your rings (1:1 ratio).
Now all that’s left is to place your napkins through your beautiful new recycled Easter napkin rings and set the table! While I still may not have mastered the art of getting rid of things, I’m trying to follow a new rule to help me: either repurpose it now or get rid of it! If you struggle with this too, try out this rule for a while. Hopefully it will help you clear some of your clutter some old shower curtain rings, you’ll know what to make with them!
