In my own words: Pinterest 7: Toilet paper roll art Oooohhhhh myyyyyy GOODNESS this one took forever! Man. I've even made toilet paper wall art before, you'd think I would learned my lesson. That one too forever too, mostly because I was dumb and painted it by hand with a junky paintbrush after I had glued it all together. But I wanted something fancier. I used the balsa as the frame for my art, cutting it with a craft knife thing. Then, for the curly parts I cut the toilet paper roll once lengthwise and then cut strips roughly the same depth as the wood width wise. Oh gosh. But... Anyway, then I came to the really hard part. Coming up with a design. I didn't want to copy anyone else's work so I was trying to come up with my own look that wasn't totally lame. That was the part that took the longest if I'm being honest. But things eventually started to come together and a short million hours later I was about done and hadn't taken any more pictures. Sorry about that. However you choose to do it, eventually you'll be ready to paint. Or are we...?

Faux Metal Wall Art (Including FREE patterns!) bySusan MyersonAugust 31, 2012 This faux metal wall art project was originally published on The Sitcom in December 2010, and was recently featured in the August issue of Crafts ‘N Things Magazine. Who knew that a bunch of toilet paper tubes and an idea would become so big? I’m so glad that you stopped by to check out this fun tutorial! It is the most popular craft project on the Sitcom! So let’s make something with toilet paper tubes! Yep, I said toilet paper tubes. I mentioned to my family that I’m collecting toilet paper tubes for use on some projects that were bouncing around in my head. They hand them to me when I least expect them, neatly packaged in Kroger bags, fully confident that whatever I have in mind for them is worth the extra effort. At Christmas, I was given a bag of them along with my Christmas present. I decided to try my hand at mixing some quilling techniques and toilet paper tubes to come up with some faux metal wall art to spice up my Southwestern theme kitchen.
Revolutionaries: A Project for Fall! Hello my blog friends! I'm so pumped to share a project I finished today! It's simple, cheap, quick, and fall-y (yes, that is a word). Anyway... Why? [Side note: please pin from the original source so the credit goes to the right person! But I also love projects involving trees/branches like these: Then, I saw this yesterday and even though it's not made from toilet paper rolls, I thought, hmm.... color behind the toilet paper rolls? So basically... What you need: 1. 3. How to do it: 1. 2. 3. 4. 4. 5. 6. It's so.. fall. And I love that I used things I already had in my craft stuff and I recycled toilet paper rolls! Would it be bad to keep it up all year? Update: here are some more pictures that I took in better lighting! Looking for more toilet paper projects?
Faux Metal Filigree Frame Tutorial My youngest daughter got married last month and I now have a new son-in-law. And I thought it would be nice to put together a hand-made frame for some of her nicer photos of the two of them together. So naturally, my mind went to toilet paper. Oh wait, I’m getting ahead of myself. So the idea of a Faux Metal Filigree Frame was born. For this project I used: (4 ea.) About 20 Toilet Paper Tubes (2 ea.) 3/8″ wide dowels about 36″ long each (Purchased from my local craft store) Hot Glue White Gloss Spray paint A ton of patience The first step was to take the frames apart, separating the glass and cardboard backing from the actual frame. Once they are laid out the way you want them, cut the dowels to hot glue on the backs of the frames. Carefully turn your piece over. Now cut the toilet paper tubes once length-wise, then mark 1/4″ lines along the width of the tube so that your strips will have a curl. The pattern for my frame was made up as I went. Be sure to glue to the frames as you go.
Thrifty Crafty Girl: Wrought Iron, Except It's Not. Before I start talking about this awesome project, I have to give some props to the blogger who inspired it. Her name is Suzy. She has a sitcom. I haven't found it in my local listings yet, which probably means she held out for the big HBO or Showtime money. Smart girl. See Suzy's blog here. Did you look? Me: Hey, Suze. We sounded more educated in real life. So I did it: That's right... wrought iron. First, you call your family and ask them to save all their toilet paper and paper towel rolls. Once you've acquired a ridiculous amount of toilet paper and paper towel rolls (I didn't count how many I used because I am thoughtless. Cut your toilet paper rolls down the side and unfold it, keeping the curl. Suzy did an awesome quilled monogram project that I would also like to do eventually... but I can only steal one project at a time from her. I used paper towel rolls for the long straight strips, just cut longways instead of with the curl. Toilet paper roll art. Visit Suzy.

Toilet Paper Roll Wall Art « Made2Style Well that’s a mouthful! So the time has come, it’s Pinterest Challenge time again! Every season Sherry from YHL and Katie from Bower Power throw a little link party to get people to stop pinning things and actually start making. This was the image I saw that sparked me to start saving my toilet paper rolls. I literally have been saving my rolls for. ever. Here’s what my toilet paper wall art turned into! Ok let’s get down to the nitty gritty. Next, I cut them up. Then, I took 4 pieces and glued them together using a hot glue gun. I continued doing this until I had about 40. Then I took the mirror I was going to use (10″ mirror purchased at Joann’s for $8) and placed it on the floor and started adding all the circles around keeping in mind that I wanted to keep it in a circle. At this point when I looked at it I felt it resembled a snowflake so I had to figure out how to completely round it out. Once everything was attached I used command strips on the back of the mirror and hung it up!
