Sparkling Heart Shaped Napkin Ring DIY

It's always fun dressing up your table settings with handmade items for special occasions like Valentine's Day! I came up with an idea to create  a lovely Sparkling Heart-Shaped Napkin Ring made mostly with items from the dollar store. It's really simple to make and a lovely addition to any romantic table d├ęcor! Especially if they're at every place setting! 

These adorable stone heart play rings caught my attention at the Dollar Tree and I immediately knew I wanted to make something using them. 

So, I cut off the ring on the back and smooth the cut edges out using sandpaper  .  .  .

then glued on red crystal rocks I had left over from a Valentine Wreath I made last year. 
The rocks have a lovely pattern to inter-lock!

And was a perfect match to the heart!
To make the napkin ring, you will need red floral wire, and a rolling pin from the dollar store.  And also round nose pliers to curve the wire ends.
Start by wrapping the wire around the end of the rolling pin. The pin is perfect to make the spiral ring shape! It's nice and sturdy and it's so easy to remove the  wire ring when finish.

And be sure to adjust the fit of the wire spirals 
as close together as possible .  .  .

as you wrap!

For a decorative finished look - using round nose pliers .  .  .
 make a small loop on each end .  .  .

and then flair them out!
Next, place the wrapped wire ring back on the rolling pin to straighten and adjust! 

Doesn't this spiraled wire ring look pretty enough to use on its' own? Why yes!

Glue the spiraled wire ring onto back of the heart shape .  .  .

for a lovely sparkling heart-shape napkin ring!
