Martha's Yule Logs


My favors at the Christmas dinner table are "Jane's snowmen" for the women and I am making "Martha's yule logs" for the men. The yule logs are made from toilet paper tubes and a pre-printed paper design downloaded from Martha's website:
The yule logs are so easy to make and will compliment my dinner dishes (Syracuse China). I only wish I had found this idea earlier so I could have made 16.
I plan on tucking a few treats and a lottery ticket inside.

Jane and Martha are just too clever for me!

I am joining Metamorphosis Monday today. Jump over to Between Naps on the Porch for some other ideas

  3. How cute! I've been saving paper towel rolls for Christmas crackers. I didn't think about tissue paper rolls--a better size. Thanks for visiting my blog. I hope you have a Merry Christmas!

  6. What a great idea! It really complements the china - which I love. Also, love those monogrammed ornaments in a previous post. The colors are beautiful! Linda

  9. I have a cat that will help unroll the TP for you! I'll send her right over...teachers usually have lots of them, among other things. But I'm out right now. So, so cute!! Thanks for sharing and Merry Christmas to you and your family.
