These napkin rings came out so much better than I’d hoped. The idea is so simple, I didn’t think it could look so cute. It’s a super cheap and easy way to get expensive looking rings for almost nothing.
The other thing I love is that it’s so extremely versatile. You can add accents for the holidays, or use yarn in place of the twine.
- 6 yards jute twine
- 1 paper towel roll
- glue gun
Napkin Rings, Step-by-Step
Start by marking 1 inch sections on your paper towel tube. You can get about 10 rings out of one tube.
Cut along the markings to get 1-inch wide rings.
Next, hot glue the end of your twine to the inside of the ring.
Now settle down and put on a movie or something, because the wrapping can take a little time. You’ll wrap the twine around the tube making sure each new wrap lies flat next to the one before.
Once you’ve gotten all the way around, hot glue the end to the back of the ring to finish.
You can leave it like this for a rustic look, or you can add decorations. I put cute crocheted starfish from Leah Coccari-Smith on mine!
