Valentine’s Day Candy Holder

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
