This is another idea for crafty people who like to reuse things from their house. We will explain how to make napkin ring from a cardboard tube that is left after kitchen paper towels are gone.
First, of course, use your towel papers as needed. Then cut the cardboard roll into approximately one and a half inch long pieces. Use craft knife, and scissors if needed to even edges. This measurement may vary depending on how you want it to look like. Best way is to try different sizes and, why not, make few sets of different lengths. It is not like your supply is expensive. 🙂
Now, staple or glue the beginning of your yarn and start wrapping until you completely cover the ring.
Glue or staple the end of the yarn as well, and your basic napkin ring is done. For this one we used ribbon yarn, it gives that slick and elegant look, but you can also use regular yarn or decorative ribbon or fabric ribbon.
You can leave it like that, or you can continue decorating until it satisfies your taste. Here are some ideas to look at, including an attached handmade name tag:
For crafters who know how to crochet, there is another idea how to make napkin ring. Beginning is the same, just instead of wrapping yarn, you make crochet.
Push lines of yarn to stick together and cover the ring completely and evenly.
Napkin rings are fun to make and fun to decorate with. Any time you buy new tablecloth, you can make new napkin rings to match perfectly, or you can send your guests home with a napkin ring that has their name tag attached to it. A gift that is homemade and unique.
