Holiday Napkin Rings from TP Rolls

by Alli

Holiday Napkin Rings From TP Rolls are so easy to make. Let your imagination go wild! 

I’m on a roll – a toilet paper roll!  It just had to be said! Actually, this craft calls for the TP tube. No TP was damaged in the making of these napkin rings.

I recently shared my toilet tissue roll snowmen and my Rudolf the Red-Nosed Reindeer napkin ring craft,  but today I want to show you my holiday napkin rings from TP rolls. Toilet tissue rolls are the perfect size for encircling your napkins!

Store-Bought Napkin Rings Are Not Cheap

Have you priced napkin rings lately? They’re not cheap when you’re just buying 4, but when you need a baker’s dozen (13), it’s ridiculously expensive!  And I just love napkin rings! I feel like they take a table setting over the top.

But what happens when you fall out of love with those pricey napkin rings?  You’re pretty much stuck with them.

My toilet tissue roll napkin rings are cheap and oh, so easy to make with supplies you probably have on hand right this minute.

When I’m decorating my 5th tree and I’m about done, meaning I’M DONE and I peep in the ornament box and see all those cute little leftover ornaments staring back at me – you know what I mean – well, those are perfect for your holiday napkin rings. And I know you’ve got odds and ends of ribbon just waiting to be used.

Items You’ll Need To Make Holiday Napkin Rings From TY Rolls

  • Empty TP Tubes (OK – so I took the TP off the rolls before using these so they were never anywhere near the bathroom) The TP held up and was usable, even without the roll in the middle. 
  • Embellishments (mini ornaments, ribbon, mini pompoms)
  • Hot Glue Gun

How To Make DIY Holiday Napkin Rings From TP Rolls

Cut an empty toilet tissue tube in thirds to make 3 napkins rings. Or you can make them wider by cutting them in half to make two. Or, leave them whole for a dramatic look.

Using ribbon the same width as the napkin rings, hot glue in place. Then hot glue a mini ornament of your choice onto the ribbon.  You’re done.  You can use the same type of ornaments for each place setting or mix and match.

These red and white pompom napkin rings are just plain fun. I hot-glued the little poms to the tp roll.

Here’s my A Little Birdie Told Me napkin ring.  I used a silver ribbon and one of my favorite bird ornaments.

How about a little more rustic bird action?

Speaking of rustic, how about my I Heart Plaid?  I used burlap, a smaller piece of moss ribbon, added the greenery from a tree in my yard and hot glued the heart on top.

Having a formal dinner?  Let’s glam it up a little bit with a little gold ribbon and a glittery poinsettia.

Here’s my last one!  I call it A for Alli! I found the mini ornament at Hobby Lobby (1/2 off). The ornaments also serve as place cards and as a small gift for your guests.
