Here is a super-cute project using toilet-paper tubes to make a festive bouquet. I originally got this idea from Parents.com while searching for some Earth Day projects. I made a point to complete this project only using things I already had in my home.
I started out with some toilet paper and paper towel rolls.
I cut the paper towel roll into smaller increments for use. I took my tubes and cut them on one side first all the way around, but not cutting through to the other side.
Then repeated on the other end.
I then painted my flower on all sides and stuffed some leftover tissue paper into the remainder of the tube.
I took a bamboo skewer and covered it with twine.
I then glued the skewer onto the flower and then painted over any of the exposed parts.
And there you have a lovely recycled Spring Bouquet just in time for Earth Day!
