Make these pretty little napkin rings to display on your holiday table. The fall colors are festive and represent the autumn harvest.
What you'll need:
- Green construction paper
- Tissue paper: yellow, orange and burgundy
- White craft glue
- Pencil with an eraser
How to make it:
- Cut construction paper vertically in strips about 1.5” wide. Each strip will yield two napkin holders.
- Cut each strip in half to get 2 napkin holders.
- Cut tissue paper into 1” squares.
- Cover a 1” section of the construction paper strip with white craft glue.
- Twist a square of yellow tissue paper around the pencil eraser and push down onto the glue. Remove pencil, leaving the tissue paper on the construction paper.
- Repeat step number 5 with tissue paper, alternating orange and burgundy for every 2-3 yellow.
- Cover entire strip of construction paper, leaving only ½” at the end without tissue paper.
- Bend into a “ring” and glue together.
- Let dry completely then carefully insert a napkin.
- Save tissue paper from birthday gifts to use in future projects.
- Buy construction paper in value packs from discount department stores.
- White school glue is a suitable substitute for white craft glue.
