Appears to be some kind of paper wasp structure. Completely hollow. The opening appears to be on the right side. Found on the sidewalk in front of my house.

That is the remains of the tubular entrance from a bald faced hornets nest. During an early phase of nest construction, their nests can have this tubular entrance. I do not know if they always do this.
Here is an example:

Later they are remodeled to be the football shaped nest.
