Easy Kids's craft, Spring Flowery Napkin rings (an inexpensive recycled craft)

You will need:

One cardboard tube from the inside of a paper towel


Tacky Glue (Tacky glue has a thick consistency and does not bleed through the felt

Green felt



Foam flower shapes available at Craft stores

Clothespins are handy for holding the napkin rings till the glue dries.

Measure and cut four pieces off the cardboard tube to 1 ½” lengths.  Trim the rings evenly around.

Measure a piece of felt 1 ½” x 6”.  Cut four.

It is a good idea to put two fingers inside the ring to hold it while you are gluing.  Spread a generous amount of glue all over the outside of the ring. Attach the felt piece working around to cover. Overlap and glue the ends.  Let dry.  Trim the felt to the edges of the cardboard.  Ring base is made.

To decorate the rings glue pre-cut shapes over the seam line to cover. Layer the smaller flowers on top of the larger ones varying the colors. Add circles for the center. Be creative.   Use clothespins to hold the shapes on until completely dry.

Enjoy your napkin rings. They are great family craft for a rainy day.

Note:   Make sure to use Tacky glue.  Other glues will bleed through the felt.  When cutting the tubes it is perfectly okay if it flattens slightly.  Just puff it up again with your fingers.
