CARTERVILLE, IL (WSIL) -- A new mural at Carterville High School is making use of recycled materials.

Art teacher Bruce Breeden has the idea to create a mural out of the paper towel roll tubes.

Senior Kathrynne Scott came up with the design, and her art class helped cut and stuff the rolls with tissue paper to create the image.

The mural was later put on display in the school cafeteria. Scott says it was a great way to make something good out of recycled materials.

"I really like it because it does bring a bunch of color into this room. And honestly it is a really tough time so I wanted to make sure it was an image a lot of people would like and would probably lift people's spirits up with this horrible situation." said, Carterville Senior, Kathrynne Scott.

Scott says it took several hundred paper towel roll tubes to finish the mural.
