Christmas decoration are always fun and challenging to design something new. These tube soldiers were just easy. Using a cardboard tube from Home Depot, ( a cement form tube), some felt from craft stores,ribbons , and smaller mailing tubes for the arms, as well some scrap pine for the hat brim,feet, rifle, assorted drywall screws and a bolt door catch for the rifle bolt. The only limiting factor is yout own imagination. The uniform can be in many colors to match your decor. Here I choose white and gold as it matches my Christmas decor in my living room. Then in my den, they are more of the toy solder color scheme. Both were build the same way. What surprised me most was the wonderful delight these have brought to my grandchildren's wonder!
