Top 17 Ideas for Recycling Toilet Rolls

TP rolls, loo rolls, poo rolls…regardless of what you call them, I don’t foresee a shortage of toilet paper rolls any time soon. And they can only be made into so many TP animals at the kid’s schools (but still, you might see 1 or 2 in this creative collection).  Thank goodness I’ve seen some fabulous TP-roll designs out there in cyberland and it’s time to gather some of the best and share the joy.

I know, I know. Some of you are adverse to using TP rolls – so feel free to insert paper towel rolls whenever you wish.

Here we go!

So now that you’ve seen these ideas…will you be trying any for yourself?

See you soon!

      Make sure to show us if you try it!

    Couldn’t read the directions since they were in a different language. So I will have to do some guessing as I make it.

      Colleen – Ivaalex just shared the materials. Another tip – did you know that if you use Google Chrome as your browser that you get the option to automatically translate any foreign pages? It’s super simple and a great browser to boot!

    You need this for the wreath with a metal look.

    Rolls of toilet paper
    Rolls of paper towels – slice 1 cm wide strips.
    Black acrylic or tempera paint – paintbrush.
    Glue the paper
    Clothes pegs – for fastening details.
    Gold spray – it makes the metal look.
