In my ever dying obsession in finding a re-use for toilet and paper towel rolls that are both fun and practical, here is another project for you to try out. This would make a great kids project, especially around the holidays as part of the holiday table and I am sure that we will do these again for that purpose – but Stella has been away for the past 2 weeks so for this project I was on my own.
Paper Towel Roll Napkin Rings
Paper towel roll (1 roll will make 4 napkin rings)
Scrap ribbon, paper, tulle, fabric or the like
Buttons, beads, embellishment items
Scissors (preferably ones that cut with a design edge)
1. Flatten you paper towel roll, measure and mark your cutting lines. I chose to make my lines every 2 1/2″.
2. Cut the rings with scissors.
3. I wrapped mine with paper so I measure the paper and cut 4 strips. Glue the strips on the rings.
4. I had a piece of scrap ribbon from a package that I used. The width of the ribbon determined the width of the paper strips that I cut. Cut the ribbon for each ring and glue the ribbon on. This ribbon had wire edges so I had to the glue edges until they were almost dry.
5. I had some bead embellishments that I used as the center piece of napkin rings. Glue on.
Slide the rings over your napkins and set your table!
