Day 2 of Christmas crafts- Yule log candy containers




I first saw this on Marthastewart.com and I just thought they were so cute!

Here's what you need:
  • Clip art
  • Toilet paper
  • Hot-glue gun
  • 3/4-inch-diameter wooden disks
  • Wooden knobs
  • Nests
  • Artificial tree branches
  • Artificial bird
  • White glitter
  • Candy or other small treats

Prepare Tube: use 1 toilet paper tube. Trim clip art to wrap around tube, leaving 1/16 inch of tube showing at ends. Glue in place with hot glue. Use hot glue to secure a wooden disk in one end of the tube to close it. Glue a wooden knob to a second disk. Glue a disk to bottom of tube for balance.

Brush craft glue over top of nest; sprinkle with white glitter.  Hot-glue bird into nest, and nest and artificial tree branch onto tube. Then put in your favorite candies!
