What is a crafty gal supposed to do with the kids when it's cold and raining outside? Make napkin rings for Thanksgiving of course! Hanna made one of these in school for art and I thought it was the cutest thing ever. So today, we cut up all the toilet paper rolls and paper towels we had. YES, I do collect them...just for reasons like this! :0) We are going to two places for Thanksgiving this year, so the kids made 10 for each hostess. I'll just wrap them up in simple cello bags and tie them up with pretty ribbon and attach a cute little tag.
Paper towel/toilet paper rolls
Brown craft paint (Mike's 40% off coupon)
Googly eyes (Dollar Tree...big bag for a buck)
Feathers (Mike's...use another 40% off coupon)
Circle punch (I used 1 1/4)
Creamy Caramel paper (Stampin' Up!)
Only Orange paper(Stampin' Up!)
Simple easy directions:
Cut the empty rolls into desired length
Glue 2 feathers on one side (or desired amount of feathers)
Glue the circle (face) over the feathers and be sure to apply pressure to stick.
Cut thin strips of Only Orange c.s. Fold in 1/2 and cut at a point to make the beak.
