Napkin Rings from Towel Roll

Hello Crafters!  Here is an easy napkin ring tutorial.  Make for yourself or for gifts.

When your paper towel roll is empty, take the cardboard roller and cut about 2 inch wide pieces.  This roll made 8 rings.  Next I took some fall Apple fabric from my stash and cut strips a little wider than each ring and used white tacky glue to paste onto the ring.

Then I cut a smaller piece of fabric for the inside of the ring and glued that down.   And then I let the glue dry overnight.

   Add a white napkin and now you have your own designed napkin rings!  I used "Aleene's Okay to Wash It" glue so the napkin rings can be moist cloth cleaned if stained.

You can also make napkins rings with Christmas print, which I also have in my stash and I plan to make aprons from both the apple and the Christmas print-NEXT!

I have been busy crocheting things for my Etsy Shop: Scarves, dish cloths and a darling crocheted Teddy Bear!  You can buy from this page by clicking Buy Now in my side bar or go to our Etsy Shop site.

He is so soft and cuddly,  great gift for teens.  Not recommended for toddlers as they put toys in their mouth and could be a choking hazard.

  1. Kerrie, a wonderful napkin ring idea. And I just had a thought that sometimes the cardboard rolls from plastic wrap and such are very hard. They might work, too.

    Your pink pompom scarf is a delight. Have an extraordinary pink Saturday,
