One of my most favorite types of crafts are my cool toilet paper roll crafts! When I went through my site here I was stunned to find I had so many!
So many of my readers are always asking for suggestions for crafts with toilet paper rolls, I thought it would be best to have them all together in one post. This makes it easier to find them!
I have some for every season of the year so please pin this post for future reference!
It is really amazing what you can do with paper rolls and let us face it we all have some in our house, so get crafting and turn them into something amazing!
You can make people, animals and basically anything you want! If you want me to make something for you ask me in the comments!
I hope in the future to have as many as 100 of these! I would love to do themed characters and maybe even some career themed ones, like policemen, nurses etc. I have just recently made a fireman which was a major hit with preschool boys!
I prefer the sturdier toilet paper rolls as they are much easier to work with. If you have one that is bendy and not holding it’s shape you can stick a piece of white card (to fit) or any color of card in the inside to make it stay in shape!
If I had to pick my favorite I would have to say it is my paper roll pilgrim people for Thanksgiving! Please let me know which is your favorite.
