What you need:

  • Twine
  • Toilet roll
  • Shells
  • Craft glue
  • Scissors

What to do:

  1. Using the scissors, carefully cut your toilet roll into 5cm wide rings.
  2. Apply the craft glue to the toilet roll and wrap the twine neatly and consistently until the whole ring is covered. Apply craft glue as needed and ensure the ends are tucked in well. Leave to dry.
  3. Glue a shell onto the centre of the ring. Ensure there’s a generous amount of glue for the shell to stick. Leave to completely dry. Voila! Feed your napkin through and place on the dining table for your guests to admire 😉
