Heck, most of them can be made from things you probably already have in your craft room!
First up is this 5-minute napkin ring from Artzy Creations. When I first saw it, I thought to myself that I wouldn’t be able to make these. I’ve never worked with metal before. But, I was wrong. Not only are they easy to make, the materials cost less than a dollar!
