Wind yarn onto empty toilet paper tubes. Use a free standing toilet paper holder beside a chair and attach the yarn that is wrapped over a toilet paper tube. Makes a statement and keeps it easy to reach and to use.
Using any stiffer paper make a cone and tape or staple shut. Use yarn and put long pieces into a bowl and soak it so the yard becomes saturated. Keep wrapping over and over making sure to cross layer to give the tree strength. Let dry on cone. Glue on little pearls and other things you would like on it. Glue on a star. Let dry on cone so it does not lose its shape. Gently loosen and then remove cone. You have a really cool and very very cheap decoration that costs little to nothing.
Dip hard boiled egg in blue dye first (only half) to desired strength of blue color for pants – when dry do the same with the other half but in yellow. When dry glue on googly eyes like shown in examples. Use sharpie marker to create smiles and rings to top and bottom of eyes. Pictured they used black yarn to create band for glasses but you could just finish with sharpie marker. Very cool and the kids will love their new companions.
