How to Make Charming Napkin Rings Using Toilet Paper Tubes

Crafting beautiful and practical items for your home doesn’t have to be expensive or time-consuming. One of the most underrated DIY materials is the humble toilet paper tube. Instead of tossing it into the recycling bin, why not upcycle the Nicky Elite Toilet paper tube into charming and eco-friendly napkin rings? With just a few simple steps and a touch of creativity, you can transform these everyday items into eye-catching table accessories that will impress your guests. 

Crafting Supplies: What You’ll Need

To get started on this project, gather the following materials:

Toilet Paper Tubes: Collect several empty, clean toilet paper tubes to make a set of napkin rings. You can also use paper towel tubes and cut them to size if preferred.

Craft Paper: Choose decorative craft paper or colored cardstock that complements your table setting or party theme.

Scissors: For cutting the tubes and craft paper.

Glue Stick or Double-sided Tape: To attach the craft paper to the tubes securely.

Paints, Markers, or Embellishments (Optional): Get creative and personalize your napkin rings with paints, markers, ribbons, buttons, or any other embellishments you desire.

Craft Your Way to Chic Napkin Rings

Using a ruler, measure the length of a single napkin ring you desire, typically around 1.5 to 2 inches. Mark this length on the toilet paper tube and carefully cut it using scissors. Repeat this step for as many napkin rings as you want to create.

If you wish to add some flair to your napkin rings, now is the perfect time to decorate the craft paper. You can use paints or markers to draw patterns, write names, or create unique designs. Alternatively, you can use stickers or stencils for a more intricate look.

Using a glue stick or double-sided tape, apply adhesive to the backside of the decorated craft paper. Start at one end of the toilet paper tube and carefully wrap the paper around it, ensuring the design is facing outward. Press the paper gently to ensure it sticks smoothly to the tube.

Once the craft paper is securely attached to the tube, seal the overlapping ends with glue or double-sided tape. This will keep the napkin ring intact and prevent the paper from unraveling. Trim any excess paper if needed for a neat finish.

To make your napkin rings even more special, consider adding personalized touches. You can write the names of your guests on each ring or use small stickers or charms that match the occasion.

If you’ve used paint for decoration, make sure to let the napkin rings dry completely before using them to avoid any smudging.

Sustainable Napkin Rings for Every Occasion

Creating your own napkin rings using toilet paper tubes is an enjoyable and eco-friendly way to add a personal touch to your table settings. By upcycling this often-overlooked item, you contribute to a more sustainable lifestyle. So, the next time you’re about to toss out a used toilet paper tube, think twice and let your creativity flow by turning it into a delightful napkin ring for your next gathering or special occasion!
