My roommate wanted something to hold multiple toilet paper rolls, instead of either keeping just the roll currently in use or the whole package in the bathroom. I decided to make her one out of things we had lying around the house.

Step 1: Materials

You will need:

  • Toilet paper rolls
  • Tissue box
  • Cardboard tube that the rolls can fit on (I used a saran wrap tube)
  • Hot glue
  • Pen
  • Scissors
  • (optional) Knife

Step 2: Making the Hole

  1. Trace the tube onto the bottom of the tissue box.
  2. (Optional) Use the knife to cut out a section of the circle you drew on the tissue box so that your scissors can fit.
  3. Cut out the circle.
  4. Insert your tube!

Step 3: Hot Glue

Your toilet paper holder is beginning to take shape!

  1. Cut the plastic off of the top of the tissue box.
  2. I found it easier to get my glue gun in the box if I cut some tabs in the top.
  3. Hot glue all around the base of the tube.

Step 4: Finished!

After the hot glue is dry you can slide your toilet paper rolls on!

You could use it as is, or if you wanted it to look a little nicer for the bathroom you could cover the box with paper or fabric, whatever you would like!

<p>Thanks, folks!</p>

<p>This is a great way to simply store your extra toilet paper rolls! Plus it uses up some stuff that would otherwise head to the trash or recycling. Nice work!</p>
