Toilet Paper Roll Wall Art!

12:29 AM

See those flowers? Can you guess what store I bought them at? If you guessed Costco, you're correct! 

No, I'm pretty sure Costco doesn't sell wall art like that, but they do sell toilet paper!
NOTE: This project is NOT hard at all! Unless you cannot use scissors or glue; then you'll have a problem... 

To make flowers like the ones above...
Estimated time: Approx. 45- 60 mins, depending on glue, paint, design, and speed you're working at. (REMEMBER: IT COULD TAKE MUCH LONGER THAN THIS THOUGH!)
Materials: 
  • 4 toilet paper tubes
  • Scissors
  •  Paints (spray paint or whatever paint you feel like using will most likely work. I used some basic acrylics) 
  • Paint brushes
  • Hot glue gun OR white glue 
  • Paper clips (IF using white glue)
  • Marking tool (Yes a pen or pencil is fine!)
Directions:
  1. Measure out 1/2 increments on the TP tubes and mark it. (You can make your sections as thick as you want, but I would recommend using pieces around this width.) I made two marks on opposite sides of the tubes, then I flattened the tube and cut on the marks. FYI, I used 10 petals for each flower. 
Just pretend this is an actual TP tube and not just a rolled up, flattened, sticky note... you get the picture.

     2.  If you are hand painting, now is the time to do so! If you're spraying it, skip this step for now! 

     3.  After the petals are all dry (if you hand painted them), now is the time to arrange them! Go crazy! If you follow my materials and instructions, arrange them in a flower, but here's a picture for inspiration from Design Sponge:
(For this I'd use many more tubes and spray paint it!) 

    4. Once you're happy with your design, glue for it (Hahaha go for it... glue for it... get it?). Anyway... if you're using white glue, use the paper clips to hold the wet pieces together while they dry. If you're hot gluing it, you don't need to.

   5.  *FOR SPRAY PAINTERS ONLY* Now is the time to paint! Go outside or in a well ventilated area and.... you know the drill... hopefully.
  
  6. Last but not least, display and e-n-j-o-y!
