Skeleton Napkin Rings Print E-mail
TROUBLE SEEING OUR VIDEO?

Belle found some skeleton lolly pops where the head was a candy skull and the stick was the rest of the bones. When she finished the pop, here was a perfectly good plastic skeleton (minus the head of course).

We figured out a way to recycle the skeleton. We gave it a new head and a new purpose.

But don't run out to find those lollypops! You can draw your own ghosts, skulls, witches or black cats. Just look around and use your imagination.

{Makes 8-10 scary napkin rings}

You'll need:

  • 1 - 8x10 inch sheet of black card stock (or a paper towel roll)
  • Construction paper or printer paper
  • Glue
  • Glitter, sequins, markers or stickers
  • Black or orange napkins
  • Some adult help

Equipment:

  • A stapler
  • Scissors
      1. Cut a 1x6 inch strip from the card stock (or a 1 inch length of paper towel roll.)
      2. Roll the strip into a circle and staple it together.
      3. Decide on your decoration. It should be at least 2 1/2 inches big. Cut out white paper to make a ghost or a skull. Use orange to make a pumpkin or black to make a cat. Use glitter or markers to make each decoration unique.
      4. Attach the decoration to the ring by stapling it or glueing it. Let the glue dry thoroughly before using.
      5. Open up the napkin, grab the middle and pull it through the ring.
      6. Place one napkin on each plate and your table will be ready for your guests.
