LIFE IS A JOURNEY, ARE YOU READY?

MAKE YOUR OWN WOVEN MAGAZINE NAPKIN RING FOR THE FESTIVE SEASON

It is going to be the Lunar New Year soon and we are thinking of making these woven magazine napkin rings for dinner. We posted this a couple of years ago but we thought we would post it again to share. These napkin rings go well with the woven coasters to create a set on the dining table. The colors of the magazines give it a bohemian charm. Finish the ring with lacquer for easy cleaning and durability.
  • Measure the length and the circumference of a toilet roll.
  • Fold magazine sheets into quarters. Once cut into quarters, fold it into half and then 1/3 and ½ again. Measure the width of the strip and match it according too the circumference of the toilet roll. It should match, giving some allowance of the thickness of the strips. Work out the thickness of the napkin ring. We have measured out 1/3 of the toilet roll, including allowance for the thickness of the strip.
  • Use glue stick to stick the strips onto the toilet roll for placement and ease of weaving. Weave and tuck loose ends into the square weaves.
  • Finish with lacquer.
