Industrial Chic-DIY Napkin Rings

While I garden and water I find myself daydreaming.  Sometimes 

my daydreaming is of wonderful and mysterious places.  Other 

times it is wondering what I could do with various left over parts of 

gardening equipment. Seems as though I should be able to do 

something creative with some of it.

I had been dealing with a leaking hose for some time and was tired

of wasting water.  I really didn't want to buy a new hose so I 

decided I could repair it with couplings.  Repair work went well,

all leaks taken care of.  As I was gathering up these leftover 

couplings, I couldn't help but notice how cute they were...

 I thought the turquoise was especially trendy and fun.  And

the silver screws add just the right amount of glitz.

We were having a little get together the following weekend, my mix

of paper plates, silver chargers, and roosters were the perfect blend

to add my napkin rings to.

My marigolds are thriving and have such nice sturdy stems for


A little mix of garden fresh marigolds and twine seemed like a great 

way to finish up the look.

Jemma's home is a quiet spot nestled among the trees. You might find me writing, reading, or puttering in my Greenhouse, tweaking a recipe, crafting a wreath or loving on my grands. Always living with a grateful heart.


  1. Oh my gosh Jemma you are nothing short of simply amazing. First my color. And then would would even have thought of doing that? I love the flower and thin rope. Beautiful and country. sandie

  2. Okay Jemma..:) you have a natural Martha Stewart, DIY, Designer flare that you need to express more often! These are darling and I don't think I would have thought of using them as a napkin ring. Nicely done! xxleslie

  3. Aren't you a clever little thing! Looks fantastic.

  4. I love that you 'see' napkin rings when you look at hose fittings. Thanks for sharing this at TTF.


  5. Jemma, these are so ingenious! What a wonderful way to use something that might of been thrown away by a less thoughtful person(ME!). Amazing! Thank you for making us think outside the box.
