Dollar Tree DIY: Rainbow Napkin Holder

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day! We hope you’re all staying happy and healthy these days! I figured we could brighten up everything going on by celebrating St. Patty’s Day with this modern rainbow napkin holder I made a couple months ago! I finally decided to try to challenge myself to work on a few Dollar Store DIYs! It seems like everyone does them and I think it’s such an interesting thing to wander through the Dollar Tree and see if I can just come up with any ideas to turn random items into something else! So I tried with this one and now I’m kinda hooked on it – so expect a couple more of these in the coming months!

With modern colored rainbows being so trendy in decor these days, when I saw this plain arched napkin holder I thought it would be perfect to make into a modern style rainbow. It cost a total of about $3 to make and I honestly think it’s one of my favorite projects! Ha! Also for everyone that is out there quarantined at home – the wrapping does take some time – so it’s the perfect craft to spend the afternoon or evening working on!
