DIY: Santa Belt Napkin Rings

http://crafts.kaboose.com/swf/santas-belly-napkin-ring-christmas-craft-photo-350x255-aformaro-07_rdax_65.jpgKaboose's blog has these adorable (and crazy easy to make) Santa belt napkin rings that would be ideal for your holiday table!  Wouldn't you just love to sit down to these cuties at your table?  We think that they are very whimsical and fun!  

 

What you'll need:


  • Cardboard tube
  • 1 sheet each of red, white, and black felt 
  • Gold chenille stem
  • Scissors
  • White craft glue

How to make it:


  1. Cut cardboard tube into 1-1/2-inch segments.
  2. Place one piece of the tube onto the red felt and cut the felt just slightly wider than the tube. Wrap the felt around the tube and trim off the excess, leaving enough for a small overlap. Glue the red felt around the cardboard tube. (See photo.)
  3. Cut a strip of black felt, about 1/2-inch wide, and glue it around the red tube, lining up the seams. (See photo.)
  4. Cut two strips of white felt, about 1/4-inch wide and glue them around the outside of the red felt, overlapping the edge a little.
  5. Cut a 3-inch piece of gold chenille and bend it into a square for the buckle. Glue the buckle to the black felt, be sure that the seam is on the opposite side. Let everything dry completely. (See photo.)

Tips:


  1. These can also be made with construction paper or craft foam.
  2. Instead of gold chenille, you can use gold glitter glue, but you will need to take into account the drying time needed.
  3. These will look just as good on fancy napkins as they will on rolled up paper towels!
