i am so glad to hear this:)

we may consider using used toilter paper inside rolls, or paper towels for that matter, I have always thought of a use for these items, now I know.. :) there are so many in the garbage

also we can plant plants in the tubes !!

I love your project, it looks awesome! I do have some questions though. Do you mean 4"diameter or 4"radius, which would make an 8" tube. Also, did you string the led's through the tubes, or just punch them in the back where you needed them?

Thanks first of all and sorry for the late reply. i did with 4 cm radius tubes ,but you can use any size you want. It's hard to find tubes:) Leds are punched in the back of all the lines i cut. Because of not seen, i is enough to punch just specific lines.
Also you wont achive put your hand in whole the length of the tube:)
Its a Very Good Idea...looking good..
