Napkin Rings from a Paper Towel Roll LIVE VIDEO

Do y’all like videos?  What about videos on home decor and crafts?  I have a special event to share with y’all that is happening all next week.  But first I have a video of my own to show you.  Let’s make some Thanksgiving napkin rings from a paper towel roll.  I love recycling crafts don’t y’all?

Thanksgiving napkin rings
You will need:
  • Cardboard paper towel roll (one will make approximately 5 rings)
  • Mod Podge (I used gloss)
  • Scrapbook paper (two colors or patterns)
  • Clothespins (you will see why in the video)
  • Paper cutter (makes this craft faster)
  • Scissors
  • Paper Punch (if you do not have a paper punch consider buying precut scrapbook embellishments)
So are y’all ready for a video?  Carolina from 30 Minute Crafts and I teamed up to bring you Craft Lightning.  In this version, we both do a craft in 10 minutes or less.  Proving that…YES you do have the time to craft!  Check out the video as we both craft LIVE and unscripted.  Be gentle…this is our first attempt.

I hope y’all enjoyed that!  We hope that we get better with each one we do.  Breaking into video is nerve wrecking y’all.  Would you like a chance to live craft with me and Carolina?  We will be doing a series of these events.  If you would like to sign up on our mailing list and we might just ask YOU to craft live with  us!  No blog required just a computer and a webcam.  Plus there are details below on how to watch us LIVE and many more home bloggers next week for a video series.  If you like steps in words instead of on video, I have those for you too…

Thanksgiving napkin rings
  1. Cut your paper towel roll into 2 inch sections.
  2. Use paper cutter to cut the patterned scrapbook paper into 2 inch strips then cut to length to fit around your paper towel roll sections with a little overlap.
  3. Use Mod Podge to adhere your paper strip to the paper towel roll.  Use clothespins to hold this for a few minutes while it dries.
  4. Use your paper punch to punch a decorative strip out of your second type of scrapbook paper.
  5. Use Mod Podge to add that to your napkin ring and again use the clothespins to hold it while it dries.
  6. Add a protective coat of Mod Podge over the entire surface.
  7. Put on a napkin and enjoy!
