These napkin rings are a perfect addition to the Thanksgiving table.

What You'll Need:

  • Paper towel tubes
  • Ruler
  • Scissors
  • Construction paper
  • Craft glue
  • Craft supplies (markers, paint, paintbrush, ribbon, beads, feathers, etc.)

Measure and cut the tubes so each ring measures 2 inches in length. (Make enough so everyone coming to dinner has a napkin ring.) Cut the same number of 2-inch-wide colored paper strips. Glue the paper strips to the tubes.

Now decide how you want to decorate your napkin rings. You could make each different, or you could make them all the same.

Draw a turkey, autumn leaves, pumpkins, or something else you're thankful for on construction paper, and cut it out. Glue it to the ring.

Use markers, paint, ribbon, beads, and feathers to decorate the rings. Here is your chance to be really creative and fanciful.

How about drawing pictures of each family member for their own personalized napkin ring? Your artwork will be the talk of the table!
