How to make these agate napkin rings:
First you’ll want to start heating up your glue gun depending on how long it takes to heat up (mines from the 90’s so it takes a while…).
Start by finding the end of the wire and starting to bend it into a tighter spiral. I curled mine to be about an inch and a half in diameter. Keep curling it around until the wire curves around a full circle four times.
Once you have your smaller spiral shaped how you want it, use your wire cutters to cut your spiral off from the rest of the wire.
Align the agate stone with the spiral in a way that looks nice to you. You want the agate stone to directly touch at least two of the wires in the spiral. Place the agate face down on a flat surface and place the spiraled wire over the agate how you like it.
Now, take your hot glue gun and glue two of the metal wires to the agate. Make sure it’s well attached by wiggling the spiral around slighty to coat the glue evenly.
Let it cool for a minute and you’re all finished. Repeat and make enough agate napkin rings for all your guests!
These DIY agate napkin rings couldn’t be easier and you can get fun colored stones that match your napkins perfectly, or you can just buy an assortment like I did and take your chances with random!
