1. Lay them out and start placing them into random positions.

You could also do something more specific like flowers or a patterned design.

Dont think about it too much!

1. Now attach the paper roll cut-outs together

2. Begin by picking up one cut-out and gluing it where it will touch the one next to it

3. To make sure the glued area stays together, place a laundry pin on the area where you glued

4. Do this for the entire design to glue it together

5. Let it Dry for at least 30 minutes!

Step 5: YOURE FINISHED!!!

You could also spray paint or paint them.

I liked the way mine turned out. Plain and simple.

Happy Crafting!!!
very lovely...was looking for something 3-d and able to be well-lit by nearby lamps etc...the metallic wall art is fab but I don't have the tools to create one... but this is perfect and will be made by me this week, since I saved all my loo rolls since birth, it seems and they threaten to crash thru my floor. Nice one... you could dip the finished designs in a tray half filled with paint / ink so just the edges are bronzed or silvered or whatever... oh boy, can't wait so thank you Korrine! Strikes me, they'd also be light enough to hang above stair-well as huge organic mobiles, lit again by lamps... they won't bring the house down (by being too heavy) but will bring the house down (by being applauded.

I really enjoy this and I'm going to give it a whirl!
That is really creative and would not think when you look at it, that it's made out of toilet paper rolls! That's awesome. Very cool for re-using those rolls also.
Nice job, I might try this, but i'm really not creative, I would most like butcher this, although it looks easy enough, i just lack any talent. But I might give it a go sometime anyways for fun. Thank you for sharing.
Very cute and simple! Love it!
