Did you ever go carol singing as a child? I did. My parents would take us to visit the elderly and sing to them each Christmas season and it was always a special feeling.
As I got older I took part in Carol services and as an adult my mum bought me the most beautiful Christmas book filled with all the Christmas songs you can think of. I love it!
Today we have a super cute Christmas Carolers craft. I know this is just so so cute and am so excited to share it here on The Inspiration Edit. Enjoy.

Let’s Make This Toilet Tube Craft
Paint the top ⅓ of the toilet paper tube a flesh tone. Allow to dry completely.
Cut strips of felt wide enough to wrap around the tube and just tall enough to cover the top ⅓ of the toilet paper tube.
Cut the felt into the shape of hair. Refer to the photo.
Glue the hair around the top of the toilet paper tube.
Cut a colourful piece of felt wide enough to wrap around the tube and about 3 ½ inches tall. Fold up ½ inch of felt and glue in place. Refer to the photo.`
Glue the hat on top of the hair and around the top of the tube.
Use a needle and thread to weave through the felt.
Once through all the felt, cut the thread off leaving enough to tie. Pull tight until the felt bunches together and then tie in place. Refer to photo.
Use scissors to fringe the top of the hat. You can also cut off the excess felt and glue a fuzzy pom pom on top.
Cut a piece of felt wide enough to wrap around the tube and tall enough to cover the bottom ⅔ of the tube.
Glue the felt onto the tube. Cut a long skinny piece of felt. (10-12 inches is perfect).
Cut a long skinny piece of felt. (10-12 inches is perfect) Tie the felt around the tube and glue off to the side. Refer to the photo.
Cut 2 mitten shapes from felt. Cut a small song book from white cardstock. Fold in half.
Glue the mittens onto the toilet paper tube. Refer to the photo.
Remember to just glue the end, not the entire mitten down.
You need them to flap so that you can glue them to the song book. Glue the mittens onto the song book.
Use paint pens to draw a note onto the song book.
Use paint pens to give the toilet paper tube a face.
Use your finger to dab the pink paint to give it a more natural look.
Your carolers are finished and ready to sing!
