Shamrock napkin rings

By Susan Rogers on February 20, 2013
Set a St. Patrick’s Day table that will turns heads green with envy.

You'll need:

 1 paper towel tube
 decorative or wrapping paper
 green paper
 tiny twigs
 white glue


1. Measure and cut a slightly flattened cardboard roll into 2.5-cm wide pieces along the length of the tube.

2. Cut 2.5-cm strips of decorative or wrapping paper and glue around the outside of each cardboard ring.

3. Cut three heart-shaped “leaves” from green paper and glue to the top of each cardboard ring with the points of each heart touching in the centre. When the glue is dry, roll up the edges of the leaves gently with your fingers to add some dimension.

4. Glue a tiny twig to the ring where the leaves touch to make the shamrock’s stem.

5. Slip the finished ring onto a rolled napkin and set at each place.
