Recycled Toilet Roll Tube Light Up Castle

Halloween Craft Projects for Kids - recycled toilet roll tube light up spooky castle

A simple budget-friendly recycled toilet roll tube castle – using readily available items such as toilet roll tubes and paint.

1.Simply paint toilet roll tubes black – we used ready mixed paint. Let these dry. Next – carefully cut windows using a craft knife (adult required) and draw details on using a silver Sharpie.

2. Position your tubes – constructing a castle with them. Glue the lower tubes/floor of the castle together and to a thick cardboard base. Because we are adding battery operated tea lights, we cannot glue the next floor onto the top of the tubes as you need access to get the candles in and out.

3. Cut a shaped piece of thick card as a second floor and paint it. Leave this loose and place it on top of the lower tubes. Glue the second floor tubes together and cut squares out of the top of the tubes to give a nice castle wall effect to the tops. Use a taller tube or glue two together to create one tall turret and add a cone top.
