I meant to have these done for Thanksgiving dinner…but I’d say halfway through January ain’t bad. Now I’ll just have to throw a Presidents’ Day (?) dinner party to have a reason to use them. Or make 94 more and use them for the wedding. I had my obliging boyfriend cut six rings from an old poster tube, wrapped them in twine and then wrestled them away from the cat about a dozen times. That last step is very important. Otherwise your cat will have six new toys and you will still have no napkin rings. I like their rustic look, so I let the original cardboard show through, but you could doll them up a bit by painting them white or a bright color first. They’re a perfect lazy winter craft to make in about 5 minutes each while watching a movie.
