Hi friends! Have you all seen the pins going around on Pinterest of the wall art made out of toilet paper tubes? I thought is was a pretty nifty idea… so when Kimberly asked me if I wanted to share a DIY ornament, the idea the idea popped into my head to make it using toilet paper tubes! Being that practically everyone uses toilet paper this craft is super inexpensive. If you have a glitter and ribbon stash like I do, this craft is free! Also, if you have little ones that like to craft this is a fun and inexpensive one for them to make for teachers, grandparents, and friends. I could also see adding these to wrapped presents instead of a bow.
What you’ll need:
- 2 toilet paper roll tubes
- 2 paper plates
- Ribbon to hang
- Paint (optional)
And the steps:
- Cut toilet paper tubes into about 3/4in sections
- Arrange pieces into the shape you want and glue
- Add glue to the edges (be careful it doesn’t drip)
- Cover glue in glitter
- Let dry, than add a ribbon and hang
And here’s how it turned out…
I liked the natural cardboard and gold look for my holiday theme this year but by painting the cardboard you really could do any color combination for a fun and festive look for your tree or a holiday package. What do you think? Stay tuned this week as we share a few more fun DIY Ornament ideas!
