Make Fall napkin rings for Thanksgiving…
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 tried this art process before, click here to see how we paint with credit cards. This unique colour blending technique produces beautiful results and it’s easy enough for toddlers and preschoolers to do.
Ok, now that you know how it’s done, here’s what I turned the art into napkin rings.
How to make Fall Napkin Rings:
I traced several oak leaf shapes on the back of my painted cardboard and cut those out.
Paint 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? Now you and your kids can make a set of Thanksgiving Napkin Rings for your family!
To my fellow Canadians, I apologize that I didn’t have this Thanksgiving craft done before our holiday, but for those of you who celebrate the holiday in November, you’ll have no problem making yours in time for your turkey dinner.
