027. Napkin rings

Nothing dresses up a table like some tinplate napkin rings made out of your favorite cans. These rings are easy to make and can be made in different ways. You can even include a monogram plate on each one with your family’s motto. (Ours is, “Anything worth doing is worth overdoing.”)

This is a no-solder project—these rings are riveted together! Included in this project are four pages of information about riveting. This information can be applied to any rivetable project!

Dimensions: 1.75″ tall; 1.5″ diameter
