Cardboard Tube Pencil Holder or Vase

Click here for a printable version of this tip

Get a paper towel or toilet paper tube. Remove all paper left on it. Cut to desired height. Cut a rectangular piece of cloth or decorative paper. Glue on the outside of the tube, rolling tightly. Before or after covering, you can also create angles and decorative edges at one end. Cut a piece of cardboard round so it fits in the bottom of the tube. Cover with cloth or paper and glue to the bottom of the tube. Place a heavy rock in the bottom to weight your tube. Display with dried or silk flowers, or use a short tube for pencils, pens, etc.
