Dollar Store Christmas Napkin Rings

This year I decided Christmas place settings and napkin rings would be a nice change. I went out looking and needless to say the sticker shock set me on the diy path. There are a lot of beautiful place settings and napkin rings geared toward Christmas but I'm trying to save money for a new fence and I just cant justify spending a ton of money on things I'll only use once a year... so I started my diy with napkin rings.


 I made the napkin rings from the cardboard tube from a roll of aluminum foil, cocktail napkins, and Dollar Store snow flakes. I had everything but the snowflakes, so I only spent a dollar.


 The cardboard tube is really hard, much firmer than a toilet paper tube so I had to cut it with a small handsaw. I cut it into 11/2 inch pieces.


 Then I painted the tube white and when the paint dried I glued strips of the napkins onto the cardboard. I made the strips a little wider than the rings and cut slits in the excess, folded it down and glued the napkins inside the tube. I put a coat of Diamond glaze over the napkins for durability.


I added a little clear glass glitter to the snowflakes and some snow glitter. Than I glued a charm to the center and tiny rhinestones to the tips.



I'll be making plates too,They'll probably be from the Dollar store as well.


For now I paired them with the plates I made for Valentines Day.


Thanks for stopping by. I'll be joining these great linkups,

  16. Those are so pretty and there's not a napkin ring out in a store that would rival what you made. :)

  25. Fantastic idea!!! I am having a Winter Wonderland dinner party and was thinking of using the Dollar Store clip on white poinsettias for napkin rings - but I love your snowflake idea so much better, especially since I will have the snowflakes scattered about the tables & hanging from the chandelier. Happy Holidays!
