    I don't think it's that bad. It reminds me of quilling. I love to do quilling!

    ~I think it looks pretty great too considering the source material but there is no way I'd use tp tubes for any projects. They were hanging in a very germy place before they became empty tubes. Ick.
    Now if you were to use wrapping paper tubes and just make the flowers, they'd be really pretty ornaments on a natural looking tree. And like she said, they could be painted. Glossy black spray paint might almost give the project a cast iron look. ~

    I kinda think it is cool. I have seen ones on Pinterest that have been painted black and they have a wrought ironish feel to them.

    For quite a few months now, I've been seeing these all over the crafting sites, and I think it's pretty neat too. A nice craft for 5-9 YOs. And you can always use paper towel rolls instead of the TP ones.

    But I wanted to thank you for posting this because I ventured further on the site, and she's got alot of great recipes. Her challah looks excellent, and I'm going back to search for more. I love ethnic foods. So maybe I personally won't be making TP roll crafts, but I'll turn out a good loaf of challah or two.... lol!

    It looked a bit cooler than I thought it would from your description. I agree that painting it black would give it a better appearance, though.

    ~Just as germy IMO. If paper towels are used for yucky messes and cleaning there's got to be some germ transfer.~

    I don't think it's ugly. Actually quite different and unique looking.

    Oh YUK! Maybe it is just the idea of what they are made of..........but I will pass. Maybe if I needed something to make with kids.......doubtful.....

    But.............how many of you would like to have me "whip you one out" for Xmas...........creative idea, yes,..........pretty? NOT!

    Gees..........no takers!! I offered to make one for a friend, and sent the link to her, she didn't even comment on the looks.......just told me it looked like a DUST COLLECTOR!!! We are BOTH NOT into 'stuff on shelves'.........well, books don't count!!

    This took me back 'to the days' when your child comes home from school with all the stuff that they make and you HAVE to display it!!! Gotta say.........all the stuff around the house drove me nuts!! My PLOT/PLAN was always to convince her that gram and gramps would LOVE to have it for Xmas...........lots of time it worked!
