Valentine’s Day Candy Holder

| Everyday Crafts, Holidays, Valentine's Day

Be a sweetie and give candy to your close friends and family for Valentine’s Day! This project is so easy and uses materials that you likely have around the house.

What you’ll need:

  • Cardboard tube (toilet paper or paper towel)
  • Construction / colored paper
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • Clear tape
  • Plastic wrap or plastic sandwich baggie
  • String, yarn, or twine
  1. Line the cardboard tube along the bottom shorter edge of your paper, and mark the opposite end with a pencil. Move the tube across the paper and make several marks. (If you are using a paper towel tube, cut it in half first.)diy valentines candy tube
  2. Cut along this line and set other piece of paper aside for a future project. diy valentines candy tube
  3. Roll the cardboard tube with the paper and tape to seal. Set your tube aside for now.diy valentines candy tube
  4. Fold second piece of paper in half lengthwise and rest the tube in the middle. Make a pencil mark on the second piece of paper on the top and bottom of the tube, right along the crease.diy valentines candy tube
  5. Draw half hearts along the fold.diy valentines candy tube

  7. Fringe the top and bottom edges of the paper to the marked line. Don’t go past this line. The thinner the fringe the better!diy valentines candy tube
  8. Cut off about 1 inch of the paper on either end (You can do this before step 7 but we forgot!). diy valentines candy tube
  9. Unfold the paper.diy valentines candy tube
  10. Tape the second piece of paper around the tube, making sure to center the tube from top to bottom. You can use the marks you made in step 4 to line it up. diy valentines candy tube
  11. Now fill your tube with candy, chocolates, toys, etc! We recommend putting unwrapped candy in a plastic baggie or in plastic wrap.
  12. Gently bend the fringed ends over the edge of the tube all the way around. Repeat on the other end.diy valentines candy tube
  13. Cut two 3″ pieces of string and tie them around the fringed ends. diy valentines candy tube
  14. Tape the ends of the string to the back of the tube to prevent them from sliding off. diy valentines candy tube
