They are used in thread production for dyeing and washing thread and they found boxes in the warehouse that weren’t going to be used.
My first thought was something for birds, either a bird feeder or using it for yarn scraps for birds to use in nests. So I did both and Evie was very happy to help.
For the bird feeder I spread peanut butter all over the tube. I’ve done this with toilet paper rolls and it worked the same for these. After it was covered, Evie rolled the tube in birdseed. I put a piece of yarn through and tied it on the top and hung it from a branch.
For the yarn scraps, I cut pieces that were 4-6″. I had a ton of small scraps from my plastic canvas blocks, so this was the perfect way to use them. I stuffed them all into the tube and then used a small crochet hook to pull the thread through the holes so the birds could get the yarn out.
I have two more of these tubes, I’m trying to think of another interesting project. If I can’t think of anything, I’ll just make another couple bird feeders!
