Flower Bud Napkin Rings Made From...Toilet Paper Rolls?

As a craft stylist, my favorite materials to work with are ones that are a. unexpected and b. free! Pinterest, therefore, has become a wealth of refreshing craft ideas using stuff we all have around the house. It's fascinating to see how many beautiful things you can make out of the discarded toilet paper rolls that collect in your recycling bin. I was instantly inspired to create these beautiful cardboard flower buds that could be assembled to make a show-stopping wreath or quickly whipped into a pair of rustic-chic napkin rings to add some earthy texture to my dining table! Watch the slideshow and follow my easy steps to make these in minutes.
