Cardboard Tube Heart Garland

This is an easy project for one kid at home or for a whole class of kids to create a Cardboard Tube Heart Garland for decorating the classroom. If you don’t have a supply of cardboard tubes to create this Heart Garland, have the kids bring them from home or have friends and neighbors save them for you. Recycled cardboard tubes make a great craft material.



Paper towel roll or 2 to 3 toilet paper rolls
Hole punch
String or ribbon


Cut your cardboard tubes into 1/2 inch pieces and form into heart shapes. See picture below for reference.

Paint your cardboard tubes and allow to dry.

Cut your straw pieces into 1 inch pieces.

String your hearts together and find a nice place to hang them.
