Tool Time Tuesday...Holiday Napkin Ring

Hi everyone...thank you for always stopping by, especially on Tuesdays!! Today's Tool Time is an easy one, but is meaningful at the same time.

Thanksgiving is this week here in the states, but this project can be used any time of there year for any holiday or occasion.

The Thoughtful Napkin Ring...

Remember the paper garland rings we use to make as kids? That's how easy!!

This project will use...

  • pretty scrapbook paper
  • hole punch 
  • brass brads

Cut a strip of paper 2 inches x 8 inches (or any size you need) and punch holes on each short end.

Here's where the "thoughtful" part comes in...

  • have each guest write what they are thankful for
  • make sure they write the date so you'll "remember when"

You can have the children in the family roll up each strip and make the napkin ring for each place setting...

or have each guest make their own after they write it. Keeps your company busy while you're getting the food ready!!

You can do this for any occasion...Christmas, birthdays, christenings, Easter! People can write their thoughts and well wishes for that function.

Slip in your napkin and place on each place setting.

You can start your own family tradition with this...

  • have each person read the napkin ring they have on their plate
  • save them and use the napkin rings for each year
  • connect the rings when you are done and make a "Thankful Garland" to decorate with each year. Great for Christmas!!

I hope you have fun making these with your family and friends!! 

Happy Tuesday,

  1. Such a cute idea! I'm in Australia so thanksgiving isn't part of our tradition, but this is so cute!

  2. This is a Tuesday "two for one"... ;)
    A simple easy idea for Thanksgiving that can be used to decorate at Christmas.
    I can imagine the children remembering which design or pretting paper was theirs each year.
    Great idea.
