Craft Lightning–Holiday Napkin Rings

If you’ve been following along you may have noticed that every couple months I take part in the Craft Lightning series hosted by 30 Minute Crafts and The Country Chic Cottage. Guess what? It’s that time again! But, before I share my 15 minute craft I wanted to say thank you to both Caroline and Angie for all the work they’ve done over the years. They are two incredible ladies who have gone out of their way to provide countless platforms and opportunities for creative bloggers and I am very appreciative of their hard work. Now on to the craft!

Usually when the holidays roll around my attention focuses on ornaments and gift-making but this year I’m also looking towards our dining room table and thinking…napkin rings!  Surely the kids and I can come up with an easy napkin ring that takes less than 15 minutes to make, right?

  • toilet paper rolls
  • yarn
  • stapler
  • scissors
  • hot glue gun

Directions for Napkin Ring #1

This was our original project idea. Cut the roll into four pieces. Tie the yarn around it and then start wrapping through the roll so that it is completely covered in yarn.  Glue your yarn down on the inside of the ring once you’ve got it covered to your satisfaction.

Honestly, I like the look of this one better…but, it took me nearly 6 minutes to make just one. Not bad but we could do better.

Directions for Napkin Ring #2

For the life of me I cannot remember the name of this kind of yarn but it’s fun, bright, and I love it! To get these rings started go ahead and cut them into four pieces like before. Instead of tying, just staple the yarn down onto the top of the roll and start wrapping around the outside of the ring.

Be careful around the edges, it’s okay if a little of the roll shows. Once you’ve got the majority of the roll covered go ahead and staple your end down too.

Yes, the staple shows, but I was able to get four of these done in 15 minutes AND these were the rings that got my family’s vote of approval.
