How To Make Bunny Napkin Rings {tutorial}

This is a complete tutorial about how to make my burlap bunnies napkin rings.

 It is another Pier 1 knock-off that came out adorable and easy. I have knocked off Pier 1 before with my  Pier 1 Pumpkins. This project was just as fun.  I am so glad to be sharing it with you!



This project didn't cost me a dime since I used scraps that I had.

I started with a cardboard roll from wrapping paper. You can use a toilet paper roll but this was sturdier.


I measured 2" on the tube for each napkin ring and cut it


Don't worry about perfect edges because this will be covered

Cut strips of burlap around 21/2" wide and measure around the tube you are using


glue down seam....I used hot glue

Take scissors and cut slits around burlap and stop at cardboard tube


This will allow you to wrap burlap to inside and glue

It should look like this


Cut 2 ear shapes out of burlap to desired height 



Mine was 21/2" long ..You can always adjust it if it is too long

Now pinch the bottom of burlap and glue to the front side of burlap covered tube



The burlap is stiff enough to stand the ears straight up. You can adjust when dry.
Cut frayed ends of fabric and glue the rest down with the ears

Note: Make sure both ears are glued center and the roll sits with out rolling over. You want it balanced.


Now make the rest of them to complete your tablescape

Told you it was easy!

SNAP!

Hi Deneen! I did the same thing that you did...buy the little bunny napkin ring at Pier One with thoughts of copying it. ummm...mine is still riding around in the car...you actually did it! Yours is so very cute and now I don't even have to figure out how to copy it thanks to your tutorial. I saw your post over at "Savvy Southern Style".
