    Spray paint the rings. I didn't want the gold to show through, so I gave the rings a quick coat of spray paint. I used a metal rod to hang the rings from while I was painting them. I placed the rod between two tree branches. I didn't want to get out a saw horse for this simple project, so I improvised.

    Measure and cut strips of burlap tape to fit around the outside of each ring. I found a roll of burlap tape that was just the right width for this. I've never used this before and while it did adhere to the rings, I added a dot of hot glue to make sure it stayed in place.

    Repeat the steps for each napkin ring. I love using neutrals and adding in just a pop of color for table settings. This gives me the look I wanted.
