Vaporeon, Flareon and Jolteon Tube Craft Printables
I recently got a request to create more Pokemon tube craft printables, so I of course chose some of the more popular ones... Vaporeon, Flareon and Jolteon. They are the powerful evolutions of Eevee and were definitely a favorite of Pokemon Go players which blew up this past summer. The hype around that game has surely died down it seems, the once overcrowded local park is completely desolate now, the geese and ducks are the only fixures who've reclaimed their land. However, Pokemon is one of those franchises like Harry Potter, Star Wars and even Disney, it has staying power which has enchanted many loyal fans over the years, and I believe it will stick around for many generations to come.
Even though Pokemon Go has died down at this point, these Pokemon sure are adorable and I kinda LOVE how they turned out! There's just something about transforming these tubes into characters that makes my heart skip a beat!
Download these toilet tube crafts below for free! You'll need a few simple materials to put these guys together. Remember to save the files to your computer and print from there... don't print directly from the web!
Here are the already colored files...
And here are the color your own files...
Step 1. Print your files, color in your Pokemon as you wish then cut out all of the pieces.
Step 2. Cut a toilet tube at about 3/4 of the way or cut a paper towel tube to size, these Pokemon are a little shorter than my other toilet tube crafts.
Step 3. Wrap the long rectangle around the tube and secure with a stapler or tape.
Step 4. Glue the face and legs to the front of the tube and the tails to the back with the printed side faceing forward!
I hope you enjoy making these Pokemon! Let me know how your experience goes!
Halloween Tube Craft Printables
I just can't get enough of Halloween and I'm so glad the season is upon us. I've created some more sophisticated characters for my Halloween scene. These guys would go great in a classroom or a child's bedroom, plus they can play with them and hide little surprises underneath, best part is you can customize them any way you'd like!
I'm totally in love with this witch, Dracula and skeleton and just like a lot of my other printables, you just download them, print 'em out, cut out all of the shapes (I use a craft knife, but kids should use scissors of course) then wrap them around cardboard toilet tubes. I design them specifically to fit the tubes.
One tip for printing is to make sure you save the file to your computer. Sometimes, if you print straight from your web browser the image turns out too small. Print from the saved document and when asked turn on "fit to page", this option may already be selected if so then you're good to go.
My wicked witch's skirt is long enough to fit around the whole tube but you can trim it down a bit, I wanted to be able to see her legs!
For the vampire, get creative making your own cape with black cardstock paper. You could even use felt, fabric or any other paper or material you have around.
Step 1. Print out all of your characters, cut out all of the shapes including the accessories.
Step 2. Wrap the body around a toilet tube and secure with a stapler, glue or tape.
Step 3. For the witch, glue on her dress before her arms. For the skeleton glue the torso in between the head and pelvic bone.
Step 4. For the vampire cut a piece of black cardstock and fold the edges back a bit, trim the paper how you wish.
I hope you enjoy Halloween and these Halloween printables as much as I do!
Haunted House Paper Craft Printable
Ok so Halloween is by far my favorite thing like ever! I've mentioned it in my previous post about my tube craft printables. Here I've made some spooky haunted houses, three in total to create a little village. Check these out in the shop and see more of my creations for sale as well!
These houses are easy to assemble, they require a bit of cutting, folding and glueing but that's the fun part right!? Once they're done put 'em on display in small spaces like a glass cabinet, a side table or mantle. I also think these would look great nestled into a Halloween wreath! That would be super scary!
Here I placed my houses on small round mirrors (I bought at the dollar tree) on top of a mason jar and an upside down candle holder, lit some candles for a charming eerie effect! I think they look awesomely Halloween-ish.
Remember to add your own touches too like small figurines, glitter or battery powered t-lights! So many different ways to display 'em.
Get these houses over in the shop!
Free Halloween Printables
I could probably go on and on about how much I love Halloween. Ever since I could remember the autumn air and the crisp smells of fall have always held a special place in my heart. I've never been a fan of the bitter cold or the hot sweltering summer, so perhaps fall has always been a bit more comfortable for me. Maybe it's all the flavors and those trips to the pumpkin farms the resonate so deeply. And forget about the colors, those vivid reds, oranges and yellows are nothing more than magical, it's the only way to describe it.
Anyway, here are three free Halloween printables for toilet tubes. You can simply just wrap them around tubes for a fun night of easy crafting or bend down the top and bottom, fill with candy, small toys and erasers and you've got a super cool treat filled pillow box. I am totally filling our candy bowl with these guys for all of the trick or treaters!
Below are all three downloads...
I was even thinkin' setting these up like pins and doing a little Halloween table top bowling! That would be fun for a kid's party or a classroom activity.
Oh and if you do use these to fill with treats... Use paper towel tubes, you'll have to cut them up but I figure it's a tad bit more sanitary, just a little bit of piece of mind.
