Cardboard Roll Crafts
Ever looked at an empty paper towel cardboard tube and thoughts “now, THAT is a work of art…”
Yeah, me either.
BUT I have looked at it as fodder for some fun potential crafts.
Without going into graphic detail, we seem to accumulate lots of cardboard tubes in our house (mainly paper towel and TP). I love recycling and upcycling and it was always in the back of my mind “we should do something fun with these.” Up until recently the paper towels rolls got a bit of a work-out as Der-ta-ders.
You know, put the tube to your mouth like a horn and holler “der-TA-DER!!
THEN I came across this awesome tutorial and compilation of tube crafts at RedTedArt. “One Loo Roll-Lots of Potential.” Now THAT just makes me giggle 🙂
Intrigued by the possibilities of this innocent little cardboard tube and it’s Big Sis the paper towel cardboard tube…I set off to find more ideas!

I know it’s the wrong time of year but this Advent Calendar Tube Wreath from Spoonful tickled my fancy too. Could also be a Birthday Countdown Calendar!
