Cardboard Tube Monsters...

My husband always cringes when I decide to start saving toilet paper rolls and paper towel rolls.  And I can't say as though I blame him.  When I do, one corner of our office looks like an episode of hoarders.  And now I'm hoarding them even more because one brand of TP has gone tube-less and I've heard rumors that others are going to follow in their footsteps.  I don't blame them.  It is better for the environment, but where will crafters like me get their tube fix??;)

The girls and I made these the other day (Yes, I joined in the fun also) and they turned out super cute!  I showed the girls a picture of what we were making and let their imaginations take charge!

All you need are TP rolls...or paper towel rolls, cut in half..or you could leave them full size if you want a giant monster and any and all craft supplies you want to add to your monster.  As you can see in the pic below, I just pulled a bunch of stuff out of the craft closet and the girls went to town!!

Mel and B decided to wrap theirs in felt wrap that already had adhesive on the back.
 I used construction paper for mine, so I had to break out the hot glue gun.  Torture I know...I love my glue gun;).
Here is my creation.  I also used hot glue for the pipe cleaners because I couldn't get them to stay in place with regular glue.  As always, use caution when using a hot glue gun!

 B's...
 Mel's...
 (Jo didn't get to participate in this craft because I thought it was a little too advanced for her)

Spooky cuteness!
