Napkin Rings with Vinyl

This post was created as a part of Tape Technologies Design Team and may contain affiliate links. I created abstract napkin rings using transparent vinyl. This project doesn't take a lot of materials to create, in fact, you don't even need a cutting machine for the vinyl. Just a pair of scissors. I used four different colors of transparent vinyl in my design (listed below), but you could choose a different color scheme to suit your decor. I want to thank Tape Technologies Inc. for providing the vinyl to create this project. 

couplings and vinyl


  • 4 PVC couplings
  • scissors
  • Transparent Vinyl
  • sandpaper
  • nail polish remover
  • scraper
  • paper towel
  • Black Sharpie Marker



The PVC couplings were found at our local hardware store and were around 20 cents a piece - very economical! You could use PVC pipe and cut to size if you are able. The couplings I found had a sticker on them. I removed it with a scraper but it left a residue, so I used acetate nail polish remover to get the gunk off.


The couplings had a few rough seams so I used a bit of sandpaper to smooth them down. The couplings also had raised text on one end and a small bump on the outside. I chose not to remove them with the sandpaper because I wasn't sure about the safety of the PVC dust.  I used a paper towel to clean off any dust before applying the vinyl.

I used scissors to cut the vinyl sheets into strips and then randomly applied them in an abstract manner to the couplings. I took it one step further and covered each end with a black permanent marker for a more finished look. 

The colors of vinyl I used from Tape Technologies were:

  • Magenta 435TG
  • Silver 493TG
  • Dark Gray 497TG
  • Black 499TG
