A few weeks ago I published an article about some of the great cardboard tube crafts featured on Craftster, and promised there were more to come. I was so surprised at how many great ideas I found; I had to showcase them in two separate articles. As promised, here are more things you can do with toilet paper and paper towel rolls.

This flowery wreath by Sisteroo would be the perfect home decor for spring! No one would ever guess what it was made of.

I can’t get over how adorable these miniature mugs of hot chocolate are. They would make the cutest ornaments! teag designed these and was kind enough to share her tutorial.
Here’s another great idea from teag: handy organizers. These are perfect for storing jewelry or displaying small collections.
Don’t forget kids’ crafts! With just a few simple supplies (colored pencils, scissors, and glue), kids can make all sorts of animals out of the tubes, like these cute little owls made by Vampberry’s niece.
Cardboard tubes also make great tools. LimeRiot used the end of one as a circle stamp. That linen looks great with that orange pattern. Make sure you click on the link to see the beautiful bag she made out of this custom fabric.

I’ve seen that some toilet paper companies have started making rolls without cardboard tubes. Oh no! Better get ’em while you can!
