Here is an easy craft that is made out of recycled toilet paper rolls.  

You will need:

-  One empty toilet paper roll
-  Scissors
-  Three small glass marbles
-  Red acrylic paint
-  Red glitter
-  White glue
-  Green ribbon
-  Hot glue

Here is the video tutorial:


1.  Flatten the toilet paper roll and cut a piece that is approximately 1/2 inch (or less - I don't measure, so eyeball how wide you want the petals to be).

2.  Cut five petals total.  Put a dab of hot glue near the top of each one and glue to the next petal to secure them in place.  Now it should look like a flower.

3.  Paint entire flower with red acrylic paint.

4.  When dry, paint with glue and sprinkle with glitter.  Allow to dry.

5.  Put a glob of hot glue in the center, where all of the petals meet and attach the glass marbles.

6.  Punch a hole in one of the petals - I used a hole punch - and string a ribbon through and make a loop to hang the ornament.

That's it!
