Take your guests back to the first Thanksgiving with these fun photo napkin rings that double as place cards.


  • Black paper or card stock
  • White paper
  • Glue
  • White paper doilies
  • Tape
  • Photos


1. For each ring, first cut a 2- by 7-inch strip of black paper or card stock. Cut a white paper collar, as shown, and glue it in place. For womenfolk, glue a section of white paper doily over the collar, then glue the collar in place.
