Ok Christmas is quickly approaching and I started to buy a few gifts. I always like getting creative and finding fun and unique ways to wrap my gifts. We seem to recycle a lot of items here at The Shabby Tree which gave me an idea. I thought it would be fun to wrap a few small gifts using a recycled paper towel roll.

The supplies that I’ll be using are:

1. Recycled paper towel rolls

2. Elmer’s multi purpose spray

3. Wrapping paper

4. Scissors

5. Curly bows

You’ll want to cut a piece of the wrapping paper longer then the paper towel roll.

You’ll use the spray adhesive to wrap the paper around the tube.

Once you have the paper wrapped around the tube you’ll then cut the ends as shown in photo below.

Theses tubes are fun to add small gifts and candy to.

Once you have your goodies inside the tube you’ll then tie the end with pieces of the curly bows.

You can find the exact paper that I’m using on my Amazon store front by clicking the link down below.


These little gifts are fun and very easy to make. I hope you’ll get creative and give this a try.
