Gumdrop Acorn Napkin Rings DIY

by Chiara Alberetti Milott

These pretty gumdrop acorn napkin rings are very easy and fun to make. Once you start, you will want to keep making them! Mix in any extras with other seasonal nuts or fruits as a colorful centerpiece. Warn your guests not to nibble them, or they might eat some glue. And of course, keep them well out of reach of small children. If you want, use pom-poms to make a kid-friendly version (see last pair of photos). In fact – just swap the hot-glue gun for Elmer’s or craft glue, and this would be a great craft project for kids to do too.

Butternut squash is a very versatile winter squash. It can be roasted, mashed, pureed for soups, used in muffins or bread – AND can also be used to make these pretty Thanksgiving or holiday name “cards.” They can also adorn the top of pie with the words “Save Room” or “Thankful” or really anything else your heart desires.
