You could wrap them in multiple layers of newspaper and loosely tape them
together. You won't get quite as nice a silhouette as the container, but it
won't be straight ike a cardboard tube. Then you culd use the base as a

piece clay mold from. molds from. There is a book by Lark that explains
simple moldmaking is ou aren't familiar with this process.
