DIY Napkin Rings with Recycled Tin Foil Rolls

Add a pop of color to your summer barbecues with these easy Napkin Rings. Recycled tin foil tubes or saran wrap tubes are the perfect strength when making this craft. 

One cardboard tube will make 8 rings that are 1-1/2 inches wide. But, if you only need 6, like I do, make them a little wider.  These rings are best used with paper napkins and plastic silver.  Fabric napkins can be used, if you don't place the silverware inside, and the fabric is rolled tightly. 

Have fun!

Supplies Needed
Cardboard Tube
(preferably from an empty tinfoil roll, etc.)
Fabric Scraps
(cut into strips)
Hot Glue Gun
Sullivan's Fray Stop 
(found in local craft stores, Joann Fabrics carries it)

With a box cutter, carefully cut rings out of the cardboard roll.
Make sure each ring is even. They can be
as thick or as thin as you want them. 
Place a dab of glue on the inside of the ring
and attach one end of the fabric.
Allow to dry for a few minutes.  
Next, start wrapping the fabric around the roll.
Once you get to the end of the fabric,
glue the end inside of the ring.
Cut off any excess fabric.
Take another strip of fabric and wrap it around the outside
of the ring. Attaching it with glue.
Spray with spray adhesive and allow to dry fully. Cut off any
leftover fraying that might be on the ring. 
Now, you're ready for your next dinner party or summer barbeque!
