Kids love to decorate for parties, and setting the table is one of the most important jobs on Thanksgiving! Handcrafted napkin rings are the perfect final touch to add unique adornment to your holiday table. This craft is suitable for all ages with adult supervision; older children will be able to complete this project with minimal assistance.
You Will Need:
This craft comes together in two simple steps:
1) Cover your tube sections with your choice of materials. We used the items listed above, but paper, colored tape or paint would also work well. Binder clips or paper clips are handy for holding ends and edges while your glue dries.
2) Embellish your napkin rings to match your Thanksgiving table. Heavier items may need to be glued on with a hot glue gun or stronger adhesive. Insert your napkins, and you’re ready to show off your personalized holiday decorations!
With these lovely child-made napkin rings on my Thanksgiving table, I’ll be reminded of how grateful I am to have the opportunity to share my love of creativity with my children and for the special moments we’ve spent laughing and crafting together!
