Thanksgiving decor is my favorite. These Thanksgiving Napkin Rings, with their rich colors and images inspired by the outdoors, were so easy to make.

Directions I made two styles of napkin rings but both use a paper tube as the “ring” part of a napkin ring. First, cut a 3×7-inch rectangle and run a Xyron Mega Runner over one of the short edges. I found it easiest to create my napkin rings while they were slipped onto a napkin. Note: Sorry if you see several different napkins! I couldn’t decide which side of them to use! For the first napkin, I cut four scallop circles from the many different prints in the In The Wild paper pack. There was one scenic one with a deer so I punched my circle around his head and that was my focal point. I ran it through my Xyron 3-inch Sticker Maker. Run one more of the scallop circles through the sticker maker as well. These two will stick entirely onto the paper tube. For the other two scallop circles, you can just run the Xyron Mega Runner across half of them because they will be sticking out over the edges of the paper tube. Adhere all of the scallop circles in a line with two of them sticking out the top and bottom of the tube. Then, adhere the leaf stickers from the 3D sticker sheets. They have a foam sticker on the back like this. I also printed out a simple little sign on cream colored paper and cut it out with pinking shears. I slid it under the round slice sticker with the pretty sparkly leaves. For the other napkin ring, I started out with the same ring base, and fussy-cut out a metallic leaf from the paper pad with small scissors, i.e. I cut just around the outline of the leaf (can you use the term “fussy-cut” with paper, or is that just a fabric/quilting/applique term?). I adhered the leaf to the tube by running my Xyron Mega Runner over the bottom half of the leaf. Then I stuck on the rest of the 3D stickers plus a little banner. The “Time to Gather” was inspired by the little wood clock. And that’s pretty much it! As you can see, I also couldn’t decide how to fold the napkins!
