Cut your toilet or paper towel tubes in half. I cut up the middle and then cut in half. Your cut won't show. Tape together. Cover the cardboard with felt, fabric, or construction paper and decorate to your hearts content!

What great Christmas tree decorations and ornaments to fill with goodies from Santa, but they also make good party favors or table placeholders too!
