You won’t want to recycle all of your toilet paper rolls after you see this awesome wreath you can make using them!
Materials you will need:
-Toilet paper rolls – I used about 30. If you have paper towel rolls though, you’ll use less.
-circular base to hold the cardboard “petals.” I just formed some rope from a brown paper bag to use. A cross stitch hoop would also work well.
-some sort of flower decor to add to the cardboard petals. I had scrapbook paper flowers on hand.
-Twine flowers would also be great – READ HERE to see how to make them!
Press your toilet paper rolls flat, and cut them into strips about 1/4″ wide. You can see a tub full of them in the picture above.
Because I didn’t have any cross stitch hoops on hand, and didn’t want to buy one for this project, I just made my own circle base out of rope handles from a brown paper bag I had. I just wrapped the rope around a small pot and used some hot glue to re-enforce the circular shape.
Hot Glue the toilet paper roll “petals” in the pattern above on the rope circle.
