My daughter and I had fun the other day making our own napkin rings. Ok, that is not true. That is a big exaggeration. We made a napkin ring. Just one. I know, that is so lame. What good is ONE napkin ring? But, just keeping it real. We’ll make more later.
Ever since Charlotte Lyons did a napkin ring tutorial on my blog last year, I have wanted to try my own. I didn’t do a picture tutorial for mine (you can follow Charlotte’s post for how to make her great napkin rings), but I can tell you what we did. It was SO easy.
The green texture you see is scrapbook paper. Have you seen the cool papers they have these days? I got just one sheet at Michaels Craft, and it will be enough for at least six napkin rings. You just cut a paper towel holder to the size you want and wrap it with paper and glue. The striped pattern comes from a ribbon, also from Michaels. Then, to finish it off, we used decorative brads.
And a happy coincidence? The napkins I bought at HomeGoods AFTER we made the napkin rings ended up coordinating!
If you want to see my little hostess gift wrap idea, you can pop over to HomeGoods! Just a couple more posts at HG and then my guest hosting will be over! Thanks for all your nice comments making me feel right at home there!
