I wanted to do a superhero craft that I was confident most everyone could do and took very few materials. So I came to this conclusion: every house produces empty paper tubes whether from paper towels or toilet paper. With this craft, I will help you repurpose/upcycle them! These Paper Tube Superhero Cuffs are super easy, I promise. They’re perfect for adding the finishing touches to any little, masked caper’s outfit. Speaking of outfits, if you need a cape we have a really simple 5-Minute No Sew Cape tutorial!
Also, keep in mind that you can make these in any color and design you like. Beyond silver and gold Duck Tape, you could use any of their fun prints. As for the foam sticker embellishments, they make lots of colors shapes of those as well. Or, you could get super creative (wink, wink) and use other items besides foam stickers such as washi tape or letter stickers, etc. Seriously, your imagination is your only limit here.
- 2 Toilet Paper Rolls (Same Size)
- 4, 5-inch Pieces of Duck Tape (your choice of color)
Step 1: Place one piece of Duck tape across toilet paper roll (Open end to open end). Leave about a quarter of an inch excess on each end.
Step 2: Fold over the excess to the inside of the roll and secure on both ends,
Step 3: Repeat steps until the roll is completely covered.
Step 4: Cut down the center, open end to open end.
Step 5: Decorate with stickers and wear them!
This paper roll craft is super easy and great for any age! If you wanted to be really crafty, you could punch holes in the back and add a ribbon or string to lace up and tie on the cuff. That would only need to be done if you used these on a really little one or a “big” kid…Cosplay anyone? I will add pictures later of the upcoming birthday party where we will be using these!
Hello, I’m Aleisha. I have always been interested in the crafting world. Growing up I would often find myself in my grandma’s sewing room or in my mom’s craft room “helping” with whatever task they would give me. As an adult, my love for crafting turned into a degree in Event Planning, where entertaining and crafting collide. When I am not crafting or entertaining, I am spending as much time as I can get with my husband and two sons. I am also a complete Disney Junkie!
