Anyone who knows me will tell you that I love hosting dinners. I will basically find any excuse to not only invite our friends and family over and cook for them, but also decorate the whole table and really make an event out of it, just because. Now I’m learning that I’ve rubbed off my love for hosting dinners onto my kids; they’ve started taking me if they can help make things for our dinner table! That’s how I found myself helping them hand craft butterfly shaped napkin rings recently. The end result was so cute that we decided to outlined the process so that everyone can learn how they’re done.
Check out these photos and written instructions for making a butterfly napkin ring of your very own! If you’d prefer to follow a video, scroll to the bottom of this post to find a full tutorial there as well.
For this project, you’ll need:
- Toilet paper roll
- Blue paint
- A paintbrush
- A glue stick
- Pink pipe cleaner
- Crepe paper (orange and yellow)
Gather your materials!
Cut a piece off the end of your toilet paper roll that’s about an inch wide in order to make a smaller ring. This will be the base of your napkin ring.
Use your paintbrush to paint your freshly cut napkin ring blue (or whatever colour you’d prefer).
Cut a one inch by four inch rectangle from your yellow crepe paper. Then, cut a similar rectangle from your orange crepe paper. Fold each one in half length-wise.
