Home Accent Piece Made of Toilet Paper Rolls

I've been making so many craperific things this summer.  Unfortunately, I haven't posted much because my computer broke and I've been borrowing my daughter's.  Ripping her away from Facebook has not been easy.  I can't wait to buy a new laptop but I'm holding out for a deal.  Here's a quick little project that I made months ago.  

This is actually a freecycle project that anyone with a tush can make.  Here's what you are aiming for: 

You can go with any shape really.  I just wanted to make it square because I love it like that. 



This is basically all you need to make it.  Obviously, you will need more than one roll of toilet paper.  You can also use paper towel rolls.  Be sure to cut the slices all the same size.  



Arrange and glue the pieces together in any form and shape you like.  I made a square because it looked feminine to me.  Once I had the shape I was looking for, I spray painted the whole thing white. 


Isn't this chic?!  By the way, I found the owl at a thrift store for a buck and the candle tray came from Ross for two bucks.  So this little vignette cost a whole three bucks to put together.  This came together quite easily and it's a great, easy project for little girls to make.  I hope you give this one a try.

  4. Brilliant. One of the very best I have read. Well written, with style and intelligence. I have spent hours looking for erotica like this. Resorting to writing it myself.
