Redneck Napkin Rings




No formal redneck function (shotgun wedding, pig pickin, hunting banquet) is complete without these redneck napkin rings.

Step 1: What You Will Need

You will need a shotgun shell hull (12 gauge works best), hacksaw or rotating cutter, pencil or dowel rod, and a screwdriver (not pictured). And of course the redneck napkin, a paper towel.

Step 2:

Begin with a used shotgun shell hull, washed of course. These can be saved as they are used to bag the game served at the feast.

Step 3: Making the Cut

Use the hacksaw to remove the top of the shell, just below the lip. 

Step 4:

Or if you prefer power tools, use a rotary cutting tool to remove the top of the shell. Be careful and wear your safety glasses.

Step 5:

The top will still be attached by the plastic piece inside the shell. Using a screw driver, or dowel rod, drive the top of the shell off of the remaining brass ring. 

Step 6:

This is the top of the hull removed.

Step 7:

Using the pencil, or small dowel rod, roll the paper towel around the pencil.

Step 8: Finished Product

Repeat for each place setting.

Step 9: The Table Is Ready

Bring on the meat.
