Love this idea, and the project turns out as depicted. I can see this craft idea being used at Girl Scouts/Cub Scout meetings among other places where up-cycling is a trend and keeping to a budget is a focus.

I had my 4 and 2 year old kids paint these and I wrote names below the trunk and they will be our place settings for Christmas Eve brunch!!

Going to try this and hubby suggested I place a Battery operated candle in the base to add a little glow.

Wonderfully creative idea!! I will try spray painting the whole thing green (inside & out)…decorating with dots and designs and cutting them at different heights. I want a colorful display for the fireplace mantle.
Thanks for an exciting use of toilet paper rolls!! Oh, and these could also be adapted to Autumn, Halloween, and Valentine’s Day.

These are fabulous. The whole family which is just 4 Adults and two kids, 11 and 13 are going to Cabo for Christmas. The house we are renting has no Christmas decorations. We are going to have great fun painting and decorating these. We might even try making a cactus…lol.
