Toilet Paper Rolls= Art... You Don't Say.

A little while back I ran across Revolutionaries: A Project for Fall! Right away I knew I had found the perfect project for the empty space above our fireplace mantle. So naturally, I pinned it and went to work!

For my home, this piece fits the decor all year round, but perhaps it is a project you would just like to display for fall.

Without further ado, my version of toilet paper roll art.


I found the frame at a local thrift shop for $2.00. That's right... two dollars! It was a funky old wood color, so I painted it black.


It had no back. I stole it from another frame I had that really didn't need a back.



No trees were harmed in the making of this art. I happened across this branch at a park my honey and I frequent. It was love at first sight.


Here's the cut toilet paper rolls having the fabric and felt glued on.


Close up of the "leaves". I added fabric to the front and back for additional stability.


Here's the finished project again. Just so you don't have to scroll back up.

  3. That is actually REALLY cool! I've never seen toilet paper rolls used like that before! How nifty. This is a craft project I'll have to tell my mom about, because I'm sure she would love it.
