Now, while they were working on their canvases of black construction paper, I was working on white cardboard, and those autumn colours, all swirled together, were too pretty to NOT put to good use, and so, my Fall napkin rings were born.
If you’ve never painted with credit cards before, you HAVE to try it! It’s such a cool technique. The colour blending is beautiful, and it’s rather addictive. You can get the how-to over HERE, at my “hearts with credit cards” post.
Ok, now that you know how it’s done, here’s what I did to make the napkin rings.
Then I painted some cardboard tubes with brown paint. Paper towels, wrapping paper, tinfoil and plastic wrap all come wrapped around cardboard tubes that would be perfect for this project. You know I loves me a good toilet roll craft, but we’re talking about something that’s going to be inches away from your dinner plate, so you might want to consider using one of the above alternatives.
That’s it, that’s all! Aren’t they great?
To my fellow Canadians, I apologize that I didn’t have this post done before our Thanksgiving, but for those of you who celebrate the holiday in November, you’ll have no problem making yours in time for your turkey dinner.
