Supplies: Several empty toilet paper rolls (flattened), scissors, hot glue, spray paint
Time: 15-20 minutes to make, a couple hours to dry
Today’s project required planning! I’ve been collecting toilet paper rolls for awhile now and luckily I had enough by the time I’d planned to make my TP roll craft! It’s a lovely little wall decoration that I’ve been seeing around the internet for several months. And thanks to this craft I’m the proud owner of a can of spray glitter paint! And it’s easy, so here we go.
Start by flattening the rolls. Then cut them into pieces. I found that four pieces per roll was a good amount, but you can probably get five per roll if you want to make flatter flowers.
Using a little hot glue at a folded edge of each cut piece attach five cardboard pieces together to make a flower shape.
Get out your spray paint and some newpaper to put under the cardboard flowers. Shake up the paint and spray your cardboard flowers. There are a lot of nooks and crannies on these flowers, so make sure you paint them from many angles so you cover the whole thing. I used a silver glitter paint!
When the paint is completely dry you can hang them on the wall. Place a small nail where you want the flower to be and hang the flower on the nail.
I did a nice little trail of flowers down the wall near the entrance to my craft room.
If I had a large empty wall I’d make even more of these flowers and scatter them across the entire wall. It was a cloudy day and the lighting in my apartment is terrible, so the pictures don’t look great, but I promise these are really pretty! Hang on to those toilet paper rolls! You can do all kinds of cool things with them!
