Next, arrange and glue them together with a strong glue.

Lastly, varnish (optional) and hang it up on your wall.

    Wow, this is adorable!

    I have a tonne of rolls just lying around waiting to have something creative done to them, and this is definitely it!

    Any plans to make some other patterns? A companion dog or other people perhaps? It's wonderful as it is, but it would also be really cool to have a set :D

    This would be great for a kids room, even if it falls off the wall, it couldn't do any harm, and is lovely and playful. Great job!

    Thank you Lyssterine : )

    You can use a wall picture hanger to hang it up. Just puncture two holes at the back of the Toilet Roll Pixel Boy, tie a string from hole to hole and hang onto the hook. Be sure to use something that does not destroy your wall. Alternatively you could also use masking tapes to stick it onto the wall, but that might leave unsightly marks when you take it down. Well, I used masking tapes and that did happen to me : )

    Funny...
    I use toilet cardboard tubes to keep wires tangle free with appliances and extra cords..
    Never thought of art....
