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!
