Good day everyone,
Today I want to share with you a tutorial that has been on my mind for a really long time now. About two months ago I decided that I was no longer going to be recycling my bean cans in hopes to turn them into some nifty crafts. Well that same day I was exchanging a new toilet paper roll out for an old one and thought the same thing about those little guys!! I knew there were a ton of Ideas on pinterest that could get me started and boy was I right. There are so many ideas out there, sure we’ve used them for Ava’s paint projects but this time I was going to be using it for home decor!! Yes, I know that many of you that go on pinterest have seen the toilet paper roll wall decor & I am here to tell you, this is actually a very easy project with a great result. My mother-in-law even thought it was rod iron until I told her.

Toilet Paper Roll Wall Art
- 6-12 toilet paper rolls
- hot glue + hot glue gun
Ok lets get started!! First you’re going to cut all your toilet paper rolls about an inch & a half, making little ringlets. Make sure to fold each ringlet in half creating an oval like shape with each ringlet.
Next we are going to make our circles. Glue the ends together slowly building a circle, it takes four ringlets to make a circle. Place a clothespin on each connected area to ensure that the glue dries nice and tightly only the ringlets.
I decided to make this more of a rectangular shape, but feel free to make a square or whichever shape. My rectangle is 3 X 8 circles.
Ok so you got your shape all glued together and it looks awesome right?? Well now it’s time to paint! I used spray paint which is the quickest way to paint these guys. It’s important to note that when buying your spray paint you want to get a brand that is low or zero VOC paint or non-toxic. Home Depot should have some, I am not sure if it’s in spray paint form but I do know that there are plenty of online websites that sell them. I promise you, it’s totally worth the search!

Question of the Day:
Do you recycle or even up cycle?

I decided to paint mine dark purple, to match my decor…well really just my clock. I’m kind of obsessed with this clock, and this company, they are based in Colorado and have a number of artists and designers who get the main percent of each sale. They also reduce waste by only making products once sold. I could go more into depth about this company but I’ll let you check them out for yourself!
How does your new wall decor look?? I hope it fits well in your home & fills you with pride knowing that YOU were the one who not only made it, but upcycled in the process!
