Materials: Toilet paper/paper towel tubes, flameless tea lights, cupcake liners, paint, hot glue, fishing wire
Start from the bottom up to create that great globby drips at the bottom of the stream
You may have to apply several coats over the glue to make sure there aren't any streaks or chips
Apply small dabs of glue to keep it in place
Make sure that they are evenly spaced with sets of 2 being lined directly across from one another
The wire should through one hole and out the hole that is directly across from it
Make sure it rests on the wires
Don't worry- the wires are not visible in the dark
Make sure not to cut down the sides so you are left with 1 unbroken circle
Use the bowl for a form, use hot glue to attach the 2 sides together creating a circle
Be sure to stick to circles onto the paper bag strip and not the bowl
Once you're happy with the size of your wreath, gently lift it off of the bowl
No one will believe that you made these from toilet paper tubes!
You probably have a stack sitting in your recycling bin that would be perfect for this.
You can use a paper cutter or a very steady hand with a pair of scissors.
If you want to make a few lanterns, cut up a longer paper towel tube.
Start with one part of toilet paper tube and glue the strips around it.
Don't pull the paper too taut--you want to leave a little bit of a bulge.
Press the toilet paper tube parts towards each other to create a rounded shape with the magazine strips.
Now just sit back and relax in the soft glow of your $0 creations!
