Easy Recycled Toilet Paper Napkin Rings

About: Welcome to my Instructables page. Enjoy!

In order to make these recycled toilet paper roll napkin rings you will need the following:

Toilet paper rolls*

Marker**

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

  1. Cut the toilet paper roll in half
  2. 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!
