First measure your tube from the bottom of the cap to just above the bottom. Using a ruler and scissors, cut out a proportionate square of wrapping paper.

Brush a thin layer of Mod Podge on the tube and wrap it with the wrapping paper square. Use your thumb to press out any bubbles and to smooth the paper.

While the tube dries, take a sharp knife and poke a hole in the top. Cut a 2 – 3 inch piece of string or thin twine, fold so the ends meet and tie a knot.
