yes and i have made one that way before too but i am thinking of selling these and it just feels a little cheesy to be selling oatmean containers, you know? plus with a little handling they become fairly flimsy.

just a guess.. but 2 coffee cans stacked with the bottom cut out? I know my grandma made us all toilet paper holdres one year ( i know.. ) and thats what she used.. she taped them together and wraped in quilt batting and then fabric.. even added a cute lid which would be great to store more items inside.. cheap, resourceful and cute.. you could even advertise them as "green"ish

Maybe they used a pvc pipe from the hardware store, Or something with a cylinder shape?

These are a great idea!

I made them when I first opened my shop last year...I used oatmeal containers...but then after I had to refund 2 different customers because they were damaged when they arrived I stopped making them I even wrapped them in bubble wrap and put them into a sturdy box to ship and they still got damaged. The piping from the hardware store is just really heavy to ship, but definately more sturdy.

I think I'll try a few with the PVC for a craft show- I definitely agree shipping would be pretty expensive. Any ideas on the base on the bottom?

My husband is a master plumber so I had him bring me some different size pvc pipe. I found one that will work, and I have him cutting the bottom to level it out. I am going to wrap it with quilting and then with fabric. The good thing about it is that it will be hallow in side from where you put the fabric inside and they can store a hairbrush and comb. I had not thought of putting the ribbon along the outside though that is good.
