Introduction: Paper Roll Wall Art

About: Crafting on a budget.

You'd be surprised what many uses you can do with toilet paper rolls! This is my favorite because it's for the whole family and doesn't require much supplies.

Supplies:

recycled toilet paper tubes (or tubes from wrapping paper and also paper towel tubes, lots of them!)

white glue or a hot glue gun

lots of paper clips, if you're using white glue

Step 1: Cut the Tube Into 1/2 Inches

Cut tubes into evenly sized rings. You do want the rings to be the same depth, so do take the extra time to measure! If you want to be a perfectionist, cut with a craft knife and a metal ruler. You can glue them together however you'd like, I find it easier to start them off by creating floral like shapes. I used hot glue since it's quicker, but I'd recommend using the white glue and paper clips method for kids. Use the paper clips to hold the pieces together as they dry flat on a table if you go with the white glue. I really didn't have a plan so I decided to assemble flowers, and figure out what to do with them afterwards! You might want to actually design something first for more certain results. You could even plan your design on the computer!

Step 2: Assemble the Pieces Together

Finish assembling your entire design and paint if desired. Hang and enjoy!

    This is a fun craft to do with kids! I've found that an easy way to get color on the rings is to paint the carboard tubes and let them dry before you cut them into rings.
