Lacy Cardboard Tube Napkin Ring
This Lacy Cardboard Tube Napkin Ring is perfect for Thanksgiving dinner in both the US and Canada. The kids will love to help and it teaches them that recycling can be beautiful.
Trivia: Thanksgiving was first celebrated in Canada when English explorer Martin Frobisher held a feast in what is now Newfoundland to mark his safe arrival to the New World in 1578.
Cardboard paper towel roll (one will make approximately 5 rings)
Scrapbook paper (two colors or patterns)
Paper Punch or lace
Cut your paper towel roll into 2 inch sections.
Use paper cutter to cut the patterned scrapbook paper into 2 inch strips then cut to length to fit around your paper towel roll sections with a little overlap.
Use Mod Podge to adhere your paper strip to the paper towel roll. Use clothespins to hold this for a few minutes while it dries.
Use your paper punch to punch a decorative strip out of your second type of scrapbook paper or lace.
Use Mod Podge to add that to your napkin ring and again use the clothespins to hold it while it dries.
Add a protective coat of Mod Podge over the entire surface.
Put on a napkin and enjoy!
