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.
When my Grandma was moving out of her last apartment and in with my father, I found a ton of empty toilet paper and paper towel rolls shoved into (and behind) one of her drawers - and when I say a ton, I mean an entire garbage bag full - and of course I threw them out. Now seeing this I am a little bit remorseful. Don't tell grandma.
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!).
