DIY napkin rings from paper towel rolls.

DIY paper towel napkin ringsDo you ever save your paper towel rolls thinking you may be able to use them someday? Well, I do . . . with kids I’m always planning some sort of craft I may or may get to. So if you’re a hoarder saver like me, why not make some paper towel roll napkin rings for Thanksgiving? These napkin rings are made by wrapping a paper towel roll with burlap ribbon and topping it off with a Scrabble tile with each guests’ initial. You’ll be recycling as well as making something pretty and customized for each of your guests.
