At holidays, I like to personalize the grandkids’ place settings with something special. This year, I am making a Pilgrim Picture of each child to use at their place setting. I w ill either have them as a napkin ring or place their Pilgrim Picture as a table favor with candy. It won’t be hard to find their place with their picture right on it.
These personalized Pilgrim Picture Napkin Rings or Favors are pretty quick and easy to make once you find the pictures to use. Print the pictures so that the heads are 1-1/2 to 1-3/4 inch tall. This might take some tries to find the right size. On my computer it asks if I want it full-page, 5×7, 4×6, or wallet size. If the picture was of several people, I printed it larger. If it is a close-up, print it smaller. I simply used regular paper and reinforced the head by backing it with tag board as I cut it out.
- Pictures – 1-1/2 in – 1-3/4 inch size
- Black cardstock Paper (I used a textured black) This paper is found in the scrapbook aisle.
- Brown cardstock Paper
- Yellow paper (I used a note pad)
- White paper (I used just plain printer paper or construction paper)
- Card board Tubes
Cut the patterns for the shoulders, caps, and collars. I labeled the sizes in case it printed out differently.
These patterns are easy to free-hand draw, too. I made all the pieces for everyone before putting them together. The men’s hats have a small band which I cut from brown paper and then made a small yellow square for the hat. Cut out the middle for the buckle. You can see the texture in this close-up.
After assembling, cut a band of black tagboard paper to fit the paper tube (I used about 1/3 of a toilet paper roll)
Glue the pilgrim picture on the roll. If using as a favor, place a candy cup inside the tube and fill with nuts and candy.
Once you find the pictures, these are really easy! I hope the grandchildren will be delighted with their pictures!
