Ok, so these are on sale on Etsy for anywhere from $15-$45. Ridiculous! But super duper easy to make. I made my own from scrap fabric costing me ... $0!!!!! It is great to have and I love it (so a 5 for that) but it also got a 5 because of the price!
TOILET~PAPER ROLLS: up'd to Christmas Tree ornaments. Are these cute or what? They’re actually just cardboard toilet paper rolls, painted in bright colors and decorated with black permanent markers. One end of the roll is simply pinched to create the owl’s ‘ears’ – a fun and easy project for both kids and adults. FORGET GOING TO A BIG BOX STORE and piling a cart high with cheap, mass-produced holiday decorations made in China. Help the Earth and create lasting memories with the kids.
Yep, this could have helped me when we were painting this past summer! This site has other great painting advice as well!
Toilet Paper Tube Owls--the site I have linked is not the original site that this was taken from, but seeing that the original pinner failed to provide a proper link, this was the closest google search result (HUGE pet peeve of mine: not properly linking pins!).
