How to make Christmas napkin rings:

Step 1: Cut the Cardboard tubes

Cutting the tubes.

Take the cardboard tubing and cut it into approximately one inch rings. It is ok to flatten the tubes some when you cut them.

Just be sure when you are done cutting them you shape them back.

Step 2: Cut the Wrapping paper into 1 inch strips.

Cutting the wrapping paper.

Now you need to cut the wrapping paper in to one inch strips. They do not have to be precise.

Just try and get them around that size. You will need two strips for each napkin holder.

Step 3: Glue the Strips to the rings.

Covering the tube.

To start the wrapping we need to secure one end of a strip to the cut tube. To do this, use a small dot of hot glue.

Step 4: Wrap the paper around the rings.

Covering the tube.


Now, we can start wrapping it around the ring. Each time you run a piece inside the ring do a small twist of it. By doing that, you will flip it over and end up with alternating colors on the out side of the ring.

When you run out, just start the next piece just like you did the first. When you have the ring fully wrapped end the tail of the wrap so it is on the inside.

Secure it with a dab of hot glue. Your ring will look similar to the one below.
