When you're in a pinch, short on money, or just like to be eco-friendly, add a touch of color and pop to your table settings with do-it-yourself napkin rings. You only need two materials and a pair of scissors:
Puncture cardboard tube every 1” or so.
Insert scissors and complete circle around the tube to cut off a 1” wide ring of card board.
Wrap washi tape around card card board ring. Overlap the ends to prevent card board from showing through.
Add a second row of washi tape to completely cover card board ring. Different colors and patterns may be used.
Fold and roll up napkins and pull through rings.
Place napkins with silverware inside at each place setting.
