Happy first week of December! I hope you had a fun Thanksgiving (we sure did!). We spent the weekend decorating our house for Christmas (more on that this week!) and playing with toilet paper rolls. Yep, you read that correctly....welcome to my post all about toilet paper! Cottonelle toilet paper to be exact!

Part of the fun of being a mom is coming up with cute crafts to share with your kids, right? Well, crafts with toilet paper rolls don't get much cuter than this my friends! Let me introduce you to toilet paper reindeer!

Want to know the best part? This craft is super easy.

First, save up your toilet paper rolls. I went to Target and purchased a 12 pack of Cottonelle Triple Roll Toilet paper....which is like my favorite toilet paper ever because it's so soft. And I love that with Cottonelle I don't have to constantly be changing the roll.....which apparently is a chore that no one does but me! Ha. So needless to say, it took me a while to build up my stash of empty rolls!

Next, gather your supplies. I used cute holiday paper saved from my scrapbooking days, scrap ribbon, a piece of brown felt (39 cents), a pack of little eyes (99 cents), and a pack of red pom poms (99 cents).  Cheap and easy craft! Not pictured: hot glue gun and scissors.

I started by wrapping each toilet paper roll in paper and glued the paper to the roll. Then I hand drew a reindeer antler template on to a piece of paper, and used it to create the felt antlers. Lastly, I glued on the eyes, noses, and ribbons. Of course I made a few of them girl reindeer too!

I love how cute these guys turned out! Hudson is a little too young to help me with this craft....but maybe we can do it again next year.

 Cottonelle Triple Roll Toilet Paper makes it easier for me to enjoy time with my family because I don't have to constantly be refilling our bathroom with more toilet paper when we have company!
