DIY Burlap Napkin Rings

I’ve been kind of obsessed with empty toilet paper rolls lately. There’s so many cool DIY projects you can do with them as you will be seeing over the next couple months (that was your warning). But I am in love with these burlap napkin rings that I made. These are very inexpensive to make and fairly easy! I think they would be gorgeous for a wedding, and they cost next to nothing to make!
First take your scissors and cut the toilet paper roll in half.
Take your glue gun and run a strip of glue in a zig zag motion up the roll. Place the end of your burlap square on the glue and hold till dry. Roll the toilet paper roll till you reach the other end of the burlap, glue it using the same technique you used with the other end.
Get a few pieces of raffia and tie a double knot around the center of the roll. Make sure your bow is on the opposite end of the seam. Trim raffia to desired length. Glue buttons on the middle of the knot.

    Do you turn the burlap to the inside of the roll?
