I Made Napkin Rings Out of What?!

Posted by on Apr 26, 2012 in birthday | 2 comments

I like to repurpose when I can.  One thing that we always have a steady supply of are empty toilet paper rolls.  As I was thinking about how to set a fun table for Madeline’s birthday party, I knew that I wanted to have napkin rings.  The only problem is that they are expensive when you need 17 of them!

As I was removing the empty toilet paper roll from the dispenser, inspiration struck!  The toilet paper roll was the perfect diameter for a napkin ring!

So, here is what I came up with:

Here is where I started.  Empty toilet paper rolls!

I cut them into 1″ sections using my paper cutter.  I had to smash them a bit to get them under the blade, but they recovered nicely.

Then, I cut 3 yards of yarn.  (I am using a “chunkier” yarn – You might need more for thinner yarn.)

I attached the end of the yarn to the inside of the roll with a dab of hot glue.

Then, I began to wrap the yarn around the roll.

When I was done wrapping the yarn around the roll, I secured the other end with another dab of hot glue.

I crocheted 2 flowers for the cute topper.  You can find a great video tutorial on how to crochet a flower at Little Birdie Secrets – here.

I added a pom pom for extra cuteness.

I hot glued them all together and . . . ta-da!

The table is going to be too cute!

I go set up today!  I am taking quite a haul of stuff!  I can’t wait for Madeline to see it!  I will be sure to take plenty of pictures to share with you guys on Monday.

Enjoy your weekend!

Life to the full to you today!
