Thanksgiving RECYCLING - DIY Napkin Holders - HOT GLUE GUN & RIBBON


Well, last night at around 8pm I decided we needed some napkin holders :) I had a few ideas but went with something simple and quick.

Neat way to recycle those toilet paper rolls, right!?

My original plan was to spray paint the toilet paper rolls and let the boys glue on the jewels however they wanted. BUT as some of you might know.....BLACK OPS "nuketown 2025" has consumed the boys and talk of the house is Search and Destroy or Kill Confirmed matches and RANKS of course. :/

They would've looked so good

Second idea was to upcycle this old shirt to cover the rolls but then I remembered the most AWESOME RIBBON EVER!

Pictures do not do it justice! It's similar to holographic glitter but it's ribbon!!!! I ended up not using the leaves.....this time. 

I cut all the rolls in half

After covering one roll I decided to trim the wire off the ribbon first and clip. I might use the wire later for attaching ribbon to a wreath or another project 

I measured, hot glued the end for a cleaner look, and hot glued 

I hot glued the inside starting at the seam

Attached a ribbon and they're done! So quick and easy!

oooohhhh ahhhhh

I only have a few family members coming over this year so it's just a small table setting. Did you notice the floating candles??? Cool, right!?

Found everything at Michaels Craft Store. I think for Christmas I'll change the rock and candles to match my colors and theme. 

Happy Thanksgiving and thank you for stopping by!
