I just thought of something when reading MissWrite's post on the napkin rings (which is a great idea!).  If you cut the the tubes longwise twice right across from each other, to end up with two half tubes, you can cut them in thin strips to make fringe that naturally curls to glue onto those little cowboy/Indian vests little boys love to make and decorate out of paper bags, or paint them and glue them on the bottom of lamp shades to brighten them up or match them to the room.  Or to anything to make it western or frilly.  To take it further, you could take a first glue on a picture from a magazine, postcard, or a photograph, then cut it in strips, put a protective coating on it and glue them in order (or out of order!) to your project!  I just cut a T.P. roll up and it works great!  the leather fringes usually end up curled up just like that. Or paint it hair colors to make curly hair for puppets! TishaLee

They make great molds for votive candles, and they also make decent vignette hoods/composing scopes if you do any photography (we actually had to bring in a whole bunch for class once).  also good for keeping knee-highs/stockings sorted in a drawer.

My sister painted and decorated (beads and such) tp tubes, and cut two 1/2 inch slits down across from each other in one side and they're awesome  picture frames.

I really want to do that idea, but tack them to my wall and make a picture frame grid!

i jammed one over a turned over paper cup and then covered it with tape to be a vase for some duct tape flowers.

I betcha your local school art teacher would like them. For our kindergarteners, we had them tape some construction paper over them, decorate it, and slick googly-eyes on. They made finger puppets 9well, they put three fingers in.)

How about sitting them on end in a cardboard box and using them to start seedlings in indoors in spring? They can hold soil and are thick enough they won't really decompose before the seeds get going. Then you could just pop the seedlings in the ground once they got going without having to cut them out of those nasty cheap black plastic pots.
