Making a Space Invaders Toilet Roll Holder




About: I've always been a very creative person and a self confessed video gaming geek. I'm a husband, father, artist and blogger

My kids broke off our toilet roll holder and I couldn't be happier. It gave me the chance to make something awesome to replace it, so I made a Space Invaders toilet roll holder, like ya do!

Print out the plans and stick to MDF board, I used 3/4 inch (18mm).

Homemade Space Invaders toilet roll holder printable plans;

Using a coping saw, band saw, jig saw or scroll saw, cut out the space invader alien design. Remove template and sand

Drill holes and mount the roll brackets with two screws and PVA glue.

Paint what ever color suits your bathroom, I did 1978 retro green.

Mount to wall, sit back and enjoy.

This is great I need to make one to make my nerd-dom true everywhere in my house. DO you think I could do this with a jig-saw, by hand?
