Napkin Holder Project

There's no better way to show Mom, Dad, Grandma or Grandpa you love them than with a homemade gift made straight from the heart. This napkin holder project will earn a place of honor in the kitchen.

What You'll Need:
  • 34 regular craft sticks
  • 12 mini craft sticks
  • Acrylic paint
  • Adhesive craft foam letters
  • Craft glue
  • Paintbrush
How to Make a Napkin Holder

Step 1: To make the side panels, place 12 regular craft sticks alongside each other. Glue one regular craft stick across the top, 1/4 inch from the ends, and another regular craft stick across the bottom, 1/4 inch from the ends. Repeat for the second side panel. Let dry.

Step 2: To make the base, line 12 mini craft sticks side by side. Glue one regular craft stick across the top edge, 1/4 inch from the ends, and another across the bottom edge, 1/4 inch from the ends. Let dry.

Step 3: Paint all surfaces of the holder the color of your choice. Let dry.

Step 4: Glue the side panels perpendicular to the long edges of the base panel, with the cross sticks to the inside. Glue a regular craft stick to the outside of each side panel (at the bottom) to provide extra support. Place the glue bottle inside, and lean other objects on the outside on each side to hold up the side panels until the glue dries completely.

Glue the side panels to the base.

Step 5: Glue one more regular craft stick at the inside bottom of both sides for extra support.

Step 6: Apply craft foam alphabet stickers to spell out a special message.
