Toilet Paper Roll Wall Decor

Make Your Own Wall Decor in 3 Easy Steps

Does anyone else feel as bad as I do for throwing away hundreds of toilet paper rolls each year?

Feeling like I was throwing away something that could be used again , I looked for ideas for an artsy creation on my go-to site…Pinterest.

Pinterest is great. And by great, I mean pretty dang awesome! There are solutions to anything and everything on there.

I found so many different ideas that I sincerely felt remorse for wasting so many paper rolls within my lifetime. But one craft in particular caught my eye:

A wallflower made from repurposed toilet paper rolls. A massive wallflower.

You may be thinking “I would never hang something made from used paper rolls in my house. That is so tacky.” Which is normal. Most people don’t consider toilet paper rolls as beautiful additions to their homes… But, don’t judge a creation by its materials! 

…don’t judge a creation by its materials!

 This wallflower turned out so awesome that I made three!

The only materials you will need are:

  • Paper rolls (amount depends on how large you want your flower. I used 30-40 small rolls.) 
  • Scissors
  • Hot glue
  • Spray paint 

There’s barely any work that needs to be done to create this cute little wallflower.  The whole thing can be done in an afternoon…about an hour to put it together and 10 minutes to paint.

There are only 3 steps!

1. Cut the paper rolls into about 1 inch thick circles and press them down so the tops and bottoms are pointy.

2. Glue the ends of the cut up rolls together to make a circle shape that forms a flower as it gets larger. You’ll notice in the picture below that some of the rolls are more squished together than others. That’s because I was fitting those together more closely, but then I realized that I only needed to touch the ends together. I kept it as it was though because I like the eclectic look. That’s the beauty of art…anything goes!

3. Spray paint the flower. (In a confined, well-ventilated place please. The air we breathe doesn’t enjoy aerosol too much!) Or you could even leave it tan. I left one of mine that way… then my mom wanted to paint it red. I didn’t have a chance to get an au naturel picture before she got to it with the spray paint.

And there you go! Three easy steps for an adorable wallflower for any room! Color choices are endless. I chose to make a 2-toned flower for my bedroom by mixing turquoise and sea foam green. I loved it!

So go choose your favorite color (or leave it tan) and make a lovely, simple piece for your home! Inexpensive and eye pleasing DIYs are the best!

Let me know how yours goes by emailing me at theearthlyones@gmail.com

If you don’t feel up to making this DIY project, please recycle your paper rolls at a nearby recycling facility! The earth (and I) will appreciate it.
