With a little bit of time and little money you can make an adorable Cardboard Tube Advent Tree.
Your child will be excited to see what is inside each tube everyday before Christmas.
To make this you need:
You need 9 long paper towel rolls
3 toilet paper rolls
Green and Brown Acrylic Paint
Red and Yellow Foam Sheets
Pom Poms (all colors)
Black Sharpie Marker
Hot Glue Gun
The cardboard Paper Towel Rolls are about 11 inches long. Measure every 3 inches and cut at that point. There will be 2 inches of green tube that you can set aside for another craft another day.
Now, you will have 24 green tubes and 3 brown ones.
Now, let’s hot glue the tubes together. (shown below)
Glue the pom poms on top of the tree.
Cut out a yellow foam star and write a 25 on it with your sharpie marker. Glue that too!
Cut the same size red foam pieces and write numbers 1 through 24 on them.
Glue them to the outside of each cardboard tube (shown below)
You have completed your Cardboard Tube Advent Tree.
Fill the tubes with toys, candy, money whatever you like!
