When I was creating my Taco Night tablescape, I wanted to add napkin rings that complemented my Taco Tuesday Lazy Susan serving tray. The tray featured a colorful pom pom border painted with COLORSHOT Premium Markers. My goal was to find napkin rings that I could also paint with the same colors.

I turned to Amazon to search for napkin rings and hit the jackpot! I found the perfect farmhouse napkin rings that featured natural wood beads and a jute tassel. These wood beads would be easy to paint to match the pom poms on the serving tray.

COLORSHOT markers are highly-pigmented and the paint is permanent on a wide-range of light and dark materials, such as wood, metal, plastic, glass and more. Therefore, I knew they would work great on the wood beads.

I ran into a minor issue when painting the beads. I had to separate the beads to prevent paint from transferring from one bead to another. With a little trial and error, I settled on a simple fix using foil, which I’ll explain in the instructions below.

Instructions

  1. Collect Your Supplies: Project materials for the fiesta napkin rings (a set of COLORSHOT premium markers and a set of unpainted farmhouse wood napkin rings Cover your workspace to protect it from wet paint. Gather your pack of COLORSHOT premium markers (I used the Rainbow Acrylic pack) and your napkin rings. You also will need some foil.
  2. Cut Small Pieces of Tinfoil: Hand holding a small piece of foil to be used to separate wood beads while they are being painted. Tear or cut small pieces of foil about 2" to 3" square. You will need 9 pieces for each napkin ring.
  3. Roll Up the Foil: Hands inserting rolled-up pieces of foil between wood beads on an unpainted wood napkin ring. Roll up each piece of foil and place a piece between each of the beads.
  4. Create Space Between Beads: Wood bead napkin rings with jut tassels. Some rings are fully painted in bright colors. The beads on the unpainted and partially-painted rings are separated by rolled up pieces of foil. Use the foil to create a space between each of the beads. Also place a piece of foil between the first bead and the tassel. This is to prevent the transfer of wet paint from one surface to another.
  5. Prime the Markers: Side-by-side close-up images of the tip of a Colorshot market. The first has not been primed and the tip doesn't contain paint. The second has been pumped and the tip is now full of green paint.With the cap on, shake the COLORSHOT markers to mix the paint before use. Take off the cap and pump the marker tip up and down on a separate test surface until the paint flows.
  6. Paint the Beads: Hands using a blue COLORSHOT premium marker to paint a wood bead on a napkin ring.Use COLORSHOT premium markers to paint the beads. I found it helpful to paint every other bead and let the paint dry for 30 minutes before painting the remaining beads. The paint dries to the touch in about 30 minutes and cures in 24 hours. Once you've finished painting, clean the marker tip according to the directions on the package. Also, remove and dispose of the foil.
