Recycled/ Upcycled Candy Tube

The container used for this project once held round chocolate wafers. Once empty, it just seemed a waste to toss it in the trash. It had a closable lid and somehow seemed like it would be good for something. While decorating other items with decopatch paper, it seemed logical to cover this as well and then decide what to use it for. It became a holder for magic markers but from the size of it, it could also be used to keep all of your crochet needles tidy as well.



Recycling Craft - Magic Marker Container 2

For this project you will need:

- round container with a lid - your container can vary in size, therefore making it useful to hold other items
- decopatch paper in a design of your choice
- decopatch glue

Empty Tube
This is the tube used for this project.


1. Tear the Decopatch paper in many pieces.
2. Start by brushing glue on an area of the cardboard tube. Then place a piece of paper over the glue and brush glue over the paper again to seal it. Continue in this manner until the entire tube is covered. Also glue around the top and bottom edge to adhere a bit of paper on the inside of the tube as well. This will guarantee that the edge of the tube is covered.
3. Let the glue dry and the container is ready to use.
