In order to make these recycled toilet paper roll napkin rings you will need the following:
Toilet paper rolls*
scissors or an exacto blade***
*each roll will make 4 napkin rings. my rolls measured about 4.5 inch.
** I used a chalk marker but feel free to use regular markers, paint pens, or any marker of choice.
*** I found scissors easier to work with than an exact blade. They gave me a cleaner edge and I didn't have to be as precise with my cuts.

Step 1: Cut Toilet Paper Roll
- Cut the toilet paper roll in half
- Tut the toilet paper roll halves in half.
You should have a total of 4 napkin rings after each toilet paper roll.
Once cut, my napkin rings measured about 1 1/4 inch wide.
Step 2: Draw Your Design
Use your marker of choice to draw a design on your napkin rings.
I went with a fall leaf design to use for my thanksgiving table.
I have included a scan of some of the designs I drew to help you get started.

Set the table with your new napkin rings and enjoy a wonderful meal with family and friends!
