When I saw the Jingle Bell napkin rings in the Pottery Barn catalogue I knew they would be charming with my Spode Christmas Tree China.Of course making the napkin rings is only part of the story.
Here are the original Pottery Barn Jingle Bell Napkin Rings.The supplies you need to make the napkin rings are a narrow black belt, silver bells, measuring tape, scissors, and glue. Fortunately, I found a brand new black leather belt at the thrift store with the tags still attached.Measure and cut a six inch piece of the black belt. Carefully glue the two ends cut piece of the belt together and place clamps over the seam.Once the glue sets you have a nice little leather napkin ring, now you can add the bell. I used my hot glue gun to attach the bell.The place setting is for a casual family dinner of soup or stew made in the crock pot while your family is out Christmas shopping. Wouldn’t it be nice to come home to a nice hot bowl of soup or stew after a long day of shopping?I used a reproduction green mason jar to create a relaxed atmosphere for a casual family dinner.For this place setting I used a Spode Christmas Tree platter as a charger and topped it with a pasta bowl then instead of a place mat I used a wooden tray.
The flatware is also Spode Christmas Tree. Yeah, I am a little obsessed.
simple Scrabble place card holder becomes special by adding a miniature bottle brush tree.
Speaking of bottle brush trees I fell in love with these three decorated ones at Hobby Lobby and at 50% off I couldn’t resist.
These Pottery Barn Inspired Jingle Bell napkin rings are quick and easy to make and just couldn’t be cuter.

Love decorating with both expensive and thrifty goodies. I get the biggest kick out of seeing what I can do with my thrifty treasures. In these lean economic days I am definately leaning more toward the thrifty but every once in a while I like to splurge a bit.
