Easy 5 Minute Cardboard Tube Napkin Rings For Spring

Do you ever debate whether or not to keep that empty paper towel roll because it just might come in handy for a really good craft? I do it All.The.Time and I'm so happy I did because I'm going to show you how to make these easy 5-minute cardboard tube napkin rings for spring.

With just one paper towel roll and less than forty minutes of your time, you can make a set of eight of these budget-friendly DIY napkin rings for your Spring or Easter table. How pretty would these be on an outdoor tablescape if you live in a warm climate and can eat meals alfresco in the Spring?

Easy DIY Toilet Paper Roll Napkin Rings For Spring

The homemade spring napkin rings cost me absolutely nothing to make using what I had on hand. I'm on a mission to deplete my craft stash and I've had the twisted paper ribbon for almost thirty years. It's about time I put it to good use!

Alternatively, the napkin rings could be made with colorful raffia ribbon instead if it's easier to find. As mentioned earlier, to make a set of eight you'll need just one empty paper towel roll OR three toilet paper rolls. The pansies and daffodil stems were found at the dollar store.

The motivation for making the pretty napkin rings is that it's time for another monthly International Bloggers Club Challenge. We are a group of bloggers from around the globe who come together on the third Monday of every month to share a DIY project with a common theme.

This month our challenge is Cardboard Creations, a great way to recycle the cardboard tubes I've been saving. For our previous All Bottled Up challenge, I made recycled plastic bottle Easter bunnies filled with jelly bean treats for my grandchildren.

How To Make Spring Napkin Rings With TP Rolls

Cut the toilet paper or paper towel roll into 1 1/4 inch wide rings with scissors or a craft knife. Again, you'll need either three toilet paper rolls or one paper towel roll to get a set of eight napkin rings.

In my craft stash, I had both lavender and pale green twisted paper ribbon in the perfect colors for Spring and Easter. Whether you use twisted paper or raffia ribbon, cut it into eight 24-inch strands, four of each color. Before moving on to the next step you'll need to untwist the paper or raffia ribbon.

Secure one end of the ribbon to the inside of a cardboard tube with a bead of hot glue.

Then start wrapping the untwisted ribbon around the cardboard tube, adjusting the tension, and straightening the ribbon as you work.

Trim the end of the ribbon to the halfway point inside the cardboard tube and add a bead of hot glue to secure it. I highly recommend using these handy silicone fingers during this process so you can safely press on the paper for a good bond.

What artificial flowers are good to embellish the floral napkin rings?

You'll want to use spring artificial floral picks to embellish the napkin rings. I found my daffodil and pansy stems at the dollar store. Alternatively, artificial tulips, crocus, hyacinth, forsythia, lilac, cherry blossoms, or small pussy willow stems would be lovely too.

Floral Napkin Ring Tip

You'll want to embellish the napkin rings with faux florals in odd numbers. For example; use one larger flower like a tulip, three medium-size flowers like daffodils, or five small flowers like pansies.

Remove the flowers from the floral picks and trim the stems to about an inch long. Slide the floral sprigs into a ribbon fold and secure them with dabs of hot glue.
