To make an upcycled toothpaste tube vase at home, you will need:

Materials
  • Toothpaste tube that stands on cap
  • Glue stick or other adhesive
  • Scissors
  • Scrap paper for collaging
Procedure
  1. Cut the end of the tube off far enough away from the cap for a flower stem to reach out of the top.
  2. After washing out the tube, inside and out, apply the adhesive.
  3. Secure a background piece of paper to the tube, leaving a small part uncovered at the top.
  4. Fold the uncovered part down over the background paper (for waterproofing). Glue pictures or shapes and designs to background.
  5. Viola! You now have an upcycled toothpaste tube vase!
