Repurpose Wrapping Paper Rolls


Ali LevyTips By Merchandising Guru Ali Levy,

As another holiday season comes to a close – here is a clever way to repurpose wrapping paper rolls and/or other cylindrical cast off’s that may be laying in your recycling bin at home or work.  You can cut cardboard tubes into different lengths and spray paint, glue together and hang them from either fishing line to create a cool looking mobile for a window display or affix to a wall or ceiling with tape or Velcro strips – note that to affix to the ceiling you will need to cover the ceiling end of the tube with paper in order for it to stick.  Again, you are only limited by your imagination and free time – to get as creative as you want while decorating these tubes.
