Kid Craft: Indian Corn Napkin Ring

We're hosting Thanksgiving at my house this year. We've only done it a few times and I've been busy planning the food to the last detail. I thought it would be fun for our kids to be involved a little bit, so we made these:

This is really easy to put together. And fun for kids to pick out the buttons! Here’s what you need:

napkin ring supplies

Craft Sticks (I used 10)
A 4-inch x 5-inch piece of felt
Assorted harvest color buttons
2 pieces of skinny ribbon
Glue (regular white glue won’t stick to the felt, you’ll need either Tacky glue or Hot Glue for that part)

Start by gluing the buttons onto the craft sticks. I just used school glue to put these babies on.

While that is drying, glue the ribbons onto the back of the felt. I was out of Tacky glue so I used hot glue. If you’re using that option, be sure to supervise kids very closely so they don’t get burned. (p.s. regular white glue won't work on felt).

After all of the glue is dry, then glue the button filled craft sticks onto the front of the felt and let that dry.

When it’s completely dry, you can roll it up, tie it together and stuff it with a Thanksgiving napkin.

Isn’t this going to make a cute kid touch at our Thanksgiving table?

  1. That's absolutely adorable! What a cute idea :) I'm going to pin this for future reference. Do you have a fave place to buy buttons at? I'm always wanting to buy them in bulk for crafts, decor etc but have yet to find a good place to purchase from.

  2. I love the idea!
