Toilet Paper Roll Crafts March 19, 2011

Filed under: Uncategorized — cydlee61 @ 2:48 pm

Our first craft challenge was to make something Spring themed out of toilet paper rolls and the ideas that everyone came up with were GREAT!  I meant to share these links to other tp tube projects with that post but forgot, so here are a bunch of projects I’ve found from around the internet.  You know, when I used to think of making crafts from toilet paper rolls, it was always children’s crafts but check out these links and you’ll see that the humble tp tube has now become quite sophisticated and can be used for not only adorable kids’ crafts but really lovely adult ones as well!

If you hung this in your home, I bet no one would have any clue that it was made from toilet paper tubes.  It is gorgeous!
