Paper rolls are plentiful in most homes – be it from toilet paper rolls or paper towel. 

Keep some of these empty rolls around, you never know when you will need them.

We always have a stash of them under the bathroom sink, always ready for some paper roll crafting.

You can also see our 16 free craft supplies that you can find around the house so you always have a crafting stash.

If you have other items around the house that aren’t on our list, just snoop around the site, we try to use all sorts of household items when crafting. We have probably used it for a craft!
