Paper Towel Roll Craft


I have been collecting tissue paper rolls thinking of making something out of it. Finally I came up with this wall decor. You can make so many different designs with these rolls.



Apart from the wall decor things, you can use these cardboard rolls for your other projects. Check out these favor boxes I made using these rolls.


And also these wall decor


But back to today's project.



You'll need:
-------------
- Cardboard rolls from tissue paper rolls.
- Scissors
- Glue.

Steps:
------
- Cut 1 1/2 to 2 inches thick of rolls from the cardboard rolls.


- After you have cut the rolls, start playing with these cutouts to make your design till you are happy with it.


- Once you are satisfied with your design. Start gluing your pieces together. You can even spray paint your design if you want.

  10. This is such a great upcycle project, I'm particularly taken with the little gift boxes though.

  11. These are beautiful works of art...........
    I once made a Christmas wreath, many moons ago, with paper towel
    rolls cut the same way and flatened, then spray painted it gold
    and put tiny Christmas balls on it. I had it for years and we
    loved it, and was sorry to see it go when it started falling apart.

    These are such cute ideas and so with it for todays decorating,
    and like you say you can spray it any color if you want.
    Great job.
    Blessings, and nice to meet yo hear in blogland,
    Nellie

    1. Nice! Time to create something now that you have your supplies ready 😊

  13. I think any project made with empty toilet paper rolls is the ultimate upcycle project! We throw these away all the time! I like your design where you glued the pieces together. I wonder if it would hold up to be used as a trivet (hot plate holder)for your dining table? It might if it's sprayed with acrylic sealer . . .(?) Great job!

    1. I think so too. It can be used as a trivet and I think also if the design is such that the pieces are glued closer together, they might be stronger too.
