I wanted to do a superhero craft that I was confident most everyone could do and took very few materials. So I came to this conclusion: every house produces empty paper tubes whether from paper towels or toilet paper. With this craft, I will help you repurpose/upcycle them! These Paper Tube Superhero Cuffs are super easy, I promise. They’re perfect for adding the finishing touches to any little, masked caper’s outfit. 

Also, keep in mind that you can make these in any color and design you like. Beyond silver and gold Duck Tape, you could use any of their fun prints. As for the foam sticker embellishments, they make lots of colored shapes of those as well. Or, you could get super creative and use other items besides foam stickers such as washi tape or letter stickers, etc. Seriously, your imagination is your only limit here.

That’s it! This Paper Tube Superhero Cuffs craft is super easy and great for any age! If you wanted to be really crafty, you could punch holes in the back and add a ribbon or string to lace up and tie on the cuff. That would only need to be done if you used these on a really little one or a “big” kid…Cosplay anyone?
