To make your own, follow this simple tutorial from Growing Up Creative.
I absolutely love this project!
In the tutorial, only the insides of the rolls are painted white. And I had intended to do mine that way as well because I do love the tan colour of the cardboard, but I found on our TP rolls there was some print from the manufacturer that I didn’t like so much. So, I opted to paint them all white.
After hours of trying to cover every nook and cranny with a paintbrush I finally realized that spraypaint would be much easier. And it looks much nicer. You can probably see in the top two photos that the paint is much more even than the bottom two photos that were done with a brush.
I’ve made about 3 different styles of these now and they look so cute when they are hung. I just love them. I’ve always recycled our old TP rolls, but this is so much more fun!
I’m sure they would be fun for kids as well.
