Toilet Paper Roll Wall Art ∙ How To by Lauren M
A faux metal piece made of recycled toilet paper rolls Well the walls in my room have been looking awfully bare recently, so I figured something needed to be done! Since my bank account is awfully bare as well, I decided to do something with what I had around the house. I've been saving toilet paper roles for a while with another project in mind, but this is what I settled on. Cheap, easy, and looks pretty good once it's finished! It has a nice faux metal/wrought iron-ish look to it, which makes it look way more impressive than it actually is :)

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... I've been diligently collecting these for what seems like forever: Why? Handspun Recycled Newspaper Yarn Recently a commenter asked what they could do with all the old newspapers they had piling up. With enough time, patience, and newspapers you can create newspaper yarn. From the design studios of Greetje van Tiem and her “Indruk” project she can purportedly spins 20yds of “yarn” from a sheet of old newspaper. Similar to our post on Plarn, newspaper yarn can be woven into varying degrees of complexity to construct anything from curtains, to rugs, netting throws, or even upholstery. Its strength may be slightly less that of yarn but when spun tightly and woven into something like a mat the newspaper yarn is a durable and functional structure. This great craft can create usable additions around the home and is a upcycle for your Sunday Post.

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? Crafts for Men & Keywords: paper, how-to, craft, design This year, I vowed to only make or buy handmade holiday gifts for my friends and family, and I've kept to it so far. But wrapping these gifts in commercial paper didn't seem to make much sense, so I wanted to create some handmade gift wrap to match. I happen to think a gift wrapped in newsprint is actually quite attractive, and love the look of text on a package, but wanted to put in a little more effort. So I came up with a cool option that's clean, masculine, and maintains the typographic look of the newsprint.

What to do With a Blank Canvas This: I love a blank canvas. It's just full of so many possibilities! For this one, I just modgepodged some pages I ripped out of a thrifted book to the canvas. The birds I cut out by hand using a template I created so they would all be the same size. Who doesn't love a fat bird on a telephone wire? Out Of A Nutshell Out Of A Nutshell Coconut Shell - As A Craft Material Despite this initial setback, coconut shell does seem like it has potential as a crafting material - it's reasonably hard, seems more or less grainless and (judging by the piece I tested, below) it looks like it ought to polish up nicely once all the fuzz is sanded away. If you've got any ideas about things I could make from coconut shell, please feel free to drop me a line. I like coconut - I was opening one the other day and started wondering what I could make out of the tough, durable shells. i decided to try to make a French Knitting bobbin... So I started by draining the water from an unopened coconut, then cutting out a circular hole in one end, using a holesaw in my drill press.

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. Yep. This frame is made from toilet paper tubes!

What can you do with an old pallet? So many things! If you ever come across the opportunity to pick up a few pallets take a look at some of the ideas I have come across for recycling old pallets into furniture and other practical and decorative pieces.
