Upcycled Yarn Container

I love my furry family members, but I'm sick and tired of picking fur out of my yarn.  What's a mama to do with limited funds?  Aha.  While eating oatmeal at breakfast this morning, I realized that the cardboard cylindar would make a perfect yarn holder.  Just cut a small circle in the lid and presto ~ no more knots, fur, or other tangled toys in my yarn!  It even makes the yarn smell like yummy oats to boot!
