Today’s post is brought to you by Bounty. I’m a member of the Quicker Picker Upper Team, but all opinions are my own. #QuickerPickerUpper
This is a fun craft on how to make your own succulent napkin rings…whether you need last minute ones for Thanksgiving dinner or want to plan ahead for your holiday meals. These are simple to put together and start from an empty roll of Bounty Paper Towels.
These succulent napkin rings were really easy to create, y’all. And they will last for years of family dinners. I think napkin rings are a great way to dress up a place setting…and they prevent all the work of fancy napkin folding, right?
I can’t decide if I like the holiday one or the Thanksgiving one better…but I just love how they turned out…kind of rustic with the “living” green touch of the succulent.
For this project, you’ll need:
- burlap ribbon
- decoupage medium
- fabric stiffner liquid
- faux succulent stems
- empty Bounty Paper Towel roll(s)
I am able to get four napkin rings out of one paper towel roll, so save a few extra if you want more napkin rings.
Besides sure fun napkin rings, Bounty Paper Towels are life savers during the holiday season.

Use a craft or utility knife to cut your paper towel roll into the size you desire.
Trim your excess ribbon so it’s not too wide. Trim its length to wrap around the tube with a 1/4” extra to overlap.
Liberally apply your decoupage medium to your paper towel tube.
Apply your burlap ribbon to the decoupaged tube.
Apply your decoupage to the inside of the tube and wrap your overlap into the tube.
Hold the overlapped burlap in place for a bit to make sure it’s in place.
Liberally apply your fabric stiffner on the outside of the decoupaged burlap.
Allow your rings to dry overnight.
Pop your succulent off the stem. You can use tin snips if it’s tougher to remove.
If your layers of succulent come apart, use a dab of hot glue to keep them together.
Add a liberal dab of hot glue to your succulent and adhere to the napkin ring.
Hold into place until hot glue sets up.
Aren’t they so pretty? I think the succulent colors and the orange burlap just scream Thanksgiving. In the holiday version, just use the red burlap. It will go perfectly with the green succulent for that festive look.
Don’t forget to have plenty of Bounty Paper Towels on hand for all of those holiday clean ups…post-craft fun or post-dinner craziness!
Here’s to a great season of delicious meals, festive table settings, and easy clean ups.
