Easy DIY Napkin Rings

My mom called me the other day and was asking where I thought she should go to get some cute napkin rings. She said she had tried everywhere, and she couldn’t find any that she liked. It really inspired me to try to make some!
I was looking around my house for things that would work, and I started with…. a toilet paper roll!
I cut it in 3 equal sized pieces.
I took one piece of the toilet paper roll and covered it with wide burlap ribbon. I hot glued the end of the ribbon to the piece of toilet paper roll, then was able to pull it tight and tuck the ends of the ribbon around the edges of the toilet paper roll.
I hot glued the end of the burlap ribbon to stay in place.
I cut a piece of tulle and folded it a few times long ways. I wrapped the folded tulle around my burlap covered toilet paper roll. I hot glued the start and end of the tulle in the same place I started and ended the burlap ribbon.
Visit the blog post below to see how I made the tulle flower!
After I glued the tulle flower on top, it was ready to use!
Make 5 more for a complete set! What a great excuse to have a dinner party! Another positive – you won’t get mad at your husband for not replacing the empty toilet paper roll!

    So pretty! Curious how do they hold up? Even if they don't, still worth it. Just make another batch :)

    Very cute idea, but it would be better to cut down paper towels rolls. Consider just where those rolls have been...
