So here's how to make toilet paper roll napkin rings (diet coke is optional).
Did you know that a roll of toilet paper is exactly 4 inches? I first tried to cut the roll using kitchen shears...this did not work very well. I then tried our new, fancy, expensive knives and it worked like a charm (don't tell my husband. I thought I was being resourceful...he would think otherwise.)
I cut four 1-inch rings.
I used plain old white ribbon from the dollar store to cover the rings. I put a dollop of hot glue on the inside and started wrapping.
At first, I glued the ribbon down periodically. I don't suggest this. It worked much better when I just wrapped them in one big swoop.
Now I had four white rings...but I wasn't impressed. I took some thick black ribbon and wrapped it around the outside of the rings.
Come back Sunday for a look at my completed table!
While I was crafting, Kyle found another use for toilet paper rolls.
