Paper Towel Tube Holders

These easy to make paper towel tube holders are great for your kids to put their rolled up drawings into and give to their Grandparents, other family members, friends or even their favorite baby sitter!

The tubes are not only very simple to make, but are a fantastic substitute for gift wrapping and gift bags!

What you need to make Paper Towel Tube Holders...

  • the cardboard tube from inside a paper towel
  • paint 
  • glitter
  • markers
  • crayons
  • construction paper


Decorate the paper towel tube, using the construction paper, paint, markers etc. The tube can be decorated however your child likes, but a really nice touch is to put the name of the person the gift is intended for along the side of the tube, then decorate THAT!

This then becomes a wonderful, personalized carrying tube, into which your kids can place their rolled up paintings - and if they don't want to give them as gifts, the holder is a good way to keep their artwork neat and organized in the bedroom!
