Upcycled Crafts: How to Make Napkin Rings

November 22, 2013 at 11:14 pm Leave a comment

Hello everyone and welcome to another edition of the upcycled crafts blog! This week, we’re doing a tutorial on how to make napkin rings from toilet paper tubes, just in time for the holidays. It’s a fairly simple craft, the most time intensive part is cutting out the design.


Toilet Paper Tube



Step 1:

We made two different napkin rings, one with leaves and one with acorns. You’re welcome to copy ours our come up with your own design. I found it easiest to draw the center band first, then add the leaves or acorns.


Step 2:

Be sure to add some sort of joining mechanism. I made one end in a pointed shape and then put a notch on the other end so the two ends could interlock. The photo below shows the acorn napkin ring in detail.


Step 3:

Once everything’s all cut out, feel free to decorate as you like.
