DIY chenille napkin rings

chenillenapkinringBrowsing for fun ideas that kids can help with, I ran across these fun chenille napkin rings from Better Homes & Gardens that would be perfect for a mother’s day brunch or girly birthday party.  Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 3 colors of chenille stems
  • Paper towel tube
  • Ruler

And here’s what you do:

  1. Choose six chenille stems, two of each color. Even up the ends of chenille stems, grouping colors. Leaving 3 inches at one end, begin to braid the chenille stems. Stop braiding 3 inches from the opposite end.
  2. For looped ends, bend over the chenille stems to form loops. Secure by wrapping a separate chenille stem around the ends. Tuck end of chenille stem into wraps.
  3. For wrapped ends, braid entire length of six chenille stems. Wrap ends tightly with a separate chenille stem.
  4. To shape, wrap braided chenille stems around a paper tube.
