Peacock Napkin Rings
- Cousin&2 pc teal peacock charms (2 pk)
- Cousin&red/yellow 4mm rondelles (3 pk)
- 30lb clear monofilament (16ʼ)
- Tacky glue or hot glue
- Craft felt (9&x12&)
- Empty toilet paper roll
- Needle nose pliers
- Wire cutters
- Sandpaper/bead reamer
1. Cut a toilet paper roll into 4 equal pieces.
2. Cut the felt long ways into 10 strips, each approximately 5/8&wide.
3. Apply glue to the end of a strip and adhere to the back side of a toilet paper ring, keeping the felt closer to the edge.
4. Wrap the felt around the ring at an angle, overlapping the edges.
5. Repeat steps 3-4 when the first strip is complete.
6. Cut a 3&length of felt from one of the extra strips.
7. Apply glue to each end of the 3&felt strip and lay the felt over the last felt wrap and the first felt wrap, keeping the 3&felt straight. (The peacock charm will attach to this.)
8. Cut a 4ʼ length of monofilament.
9. Tie the cord around the ring and into a knot next to the first overlap of felt. The knot should be hidden at the back side of the ring.
10. String on three beads, alternating colors and wrap around the ring. Repeat adding three alternating beads next to each felt overlap and then to each side of the 3&straight felt length.
11. Use pliers to bend off the loop of a peacock charm. Use the sandpaper or bead reamer to file down any sharp edges.
12. Apply glue to the back side of the charm, on the flat body portion of the peacock, and adhere the charm to the 3&felt strip. Allow to dry.
13. Repeat steps 1-12 for the other three napkin rings.
