Toilet Paper Roll Flower Ornaments

All you need to make these simple flower ornaments are a few toilet paper rolls and a stapler. They’re beyond easy to make and even if your kids are too young to cut and staple, you can assemble a few ornaments, and then set your kids free to decorate them with glitter, markers, or any stray craft supplies you have around the house. With silver glitter or cotton balls they might even resemble snowflakes instead of flowers.
