If you like it then you shoulda put a ring on it… a napkin ring, that is! Planning a classy dinner party at your new apartment, or maybe just a quiet night in with a few good friends? Or maybe you just need to satisfy your compulsive need to craft! If so, you’ll definitely want to impress your guests with tasteful and environmentally-friendly place settings that feature these upcycled napkin rings. After a few snips and a couple quick folds, you’ll have made an adorable “green” napkin ring from the wrappers of your favorite sweet snacks.


All you’ll need for this quick and easy D.I.Y. is a ruler, pen, glue stick, scissors, and of course, candy wrappers. Just watch this video for simple step-by-step instructions and you’ll have finished your first napkin ring in no time. This is a perfect post-Halloween project that will help you salvage your used candy wrappers after a night of well-deserved binge eating. If for some reason you don’t happen to have an abundance of used candy wrappers at home, you can always substitute with old magazines, scrap paper, newspapers, unpaid parking tickets, what have you.

The best part of this project is that it’s a sure conversation starter. Not only will this project help you avoid those painfully awkward silences at the dinner table, but your friends can get in on the fun and start recycling their candy wrappers as well.
