Countdown to Thanksgiving: Day 5

I've been wondering what to do with all the toilet rolls that my 5 year old likes to save. So, since I need some napkin rings for our Thanksgiving dinner, I made some out of the toilet rolls.
Here's what I used:
-toilet rolls 
-fall cloth leaves
-some Mod Podge
-paint brush to brush on the Mod Podge
-brown thin like rope (can't find raffia here)
-scrapbook paper (not pictured)

As you can see they are quite simple but I like them! They were super easy to make of course and I was actually able to finish them all while the boys worked on school. I just added Mod Podge on the outside of the rolls, cut out paper and glued it on the rolls, placed a leaf, and then wrapped the ribbon around and tied a ribbon. If I lived Stateside, I would add a charm to the ribbon, maybe like the word "Thanks" or a turkey or something Thanksgiviny. I think they'll make the table complete.

It's just glue. You mainly use it to glue over paper(and other stuff) and it leaves a clear finish. You get it at Michael's, Joann's, craft stores, etc. I brought mine from the States.
