Earth Day is right around the corner, what better way to celebrate by creating some cardboard tube wall art. If you read this blog fairly regularly, you know that I do quite a bit of recycling in my projects. I love to turn cardboard tubes into crafts, but admittedly, they are usually crafts for kids. Surely, you’ve seem how you can turn cardboard tubes into pretty intricate wall art designs. I’ve put together a branch, just imagine how cool this would be as an entire tree!
I chose cherry blossoms for this cardboard tube wall art because I think they are really beautiful and epitomize spring. You might remember the cherry blossom tree painting I made for my daughter. There’s something about them that just makes me smile.
Apple blossoms are just as gorgeous. In my last house I had one right outside my front window and wow, the blooms in spring! So beautiful! These light bulb birds were hanging in it when I took the picture. i truly wish the blooms would last all summer!
I don’t have any step by step photos, but I think you should be able to get the gist from looking at the photos. I used hot glue to put it all together. The great thing about painting cardboard tubes is that they become quite stiff and sturdy once the paint has dried completely!
Have you created any cardboard tube wall art of your own?
