This is a hard and fast rule in my house: Never, ever, EVER throw away toilet paper tubes! Or paper towel tubes for that matter. Basically all cardboard has a second life around here. Toilet paper tubes provide such a wide variety of bases for crafting, and I really believe you can never have too many! And actually, if you ever run out, don’t fret! You can actually buy naked tubes now and they are super sturdy and perfectly shaped with no straggling toilet paper residue!
Here are ten of my favorite toilet paper tube crafts but some of my favorite crafters out there!
I love the simplicity of these toilet paper tube llamas by Mer Mag.
2 ICE CREAM CONES
There’s no one better than my friend Jodi Levine of Super Make It when it comes to toilet paper tube crafts!
3 TUBE KNITTING
Another one from Super Make It…this one uses the tube to help you knit these amazing finger puppets!
4 ABSTRACT PUZZLE SCULPTURE
Paint tubes in various colors, cut slits in the sides, and use them as building blocks like Picklebums did.
