Are you looking for a unique, eco-friendly DIY napkin ring for Thanksgiving? You can easily make this book page napkin ring with pages from any old book!
Can you believe Thanksgiving is already here? Are you planning a big celebration with lots of friends and family? Or are you having a small, low-key meal?
If you’re a big planner, then you probably already have the entire day laid out. If you’re like me, on the other hand, then some minor details don’t get handled until the last minute.
One of those things just might be napkin rings. If you’re setting a formal Thanksgiving table, then napkin rings are a must.
Rather than rushing out and buying something you’ll only use once a year, why not make some out of recycled materials? You can make your own unique, eco-friendly book page napkin rings out of the pages of any book.
For an even more festive feel, choose a book with phrases or words that match the tone of the occasion for each book page napkin ring. Words of gratitude for Thanksgiving, stories from your child’s favorite character books for birthday parties – the sky is the limit.
Easy Recycled Book Page Napkin Ring Tutorial
- Old book (check thrift stores or library sales)
- Hot glue, glue gun
- Faux leaves, optional
- Begin by tearing out 3-4 pages from your book. You want the napkin ring to be sturdy so you may need to tear out more depending on how thin the pages are.
- Start folding the page to create an inch wide strip. As you fold, press the edges down tightly so the strip lays nice and flat.
- Roll the strip into a loop. You can use a sample napkin to see how large you need or want the strip to be.
- Fold the end of the strip into an arrow. Add a dab of hot glue and press into place. You will need to hold this end down until dry.
- Once dry, run your napkin through the book page napkin ring. Use an optional faux leaf tucked under the ring for additional embellishment.
