Toilet Paper Roll Art w/ ALittleClaireification.com #crafts #DIY #ArtHi there! It’s me Claire and I blog over at A Little CLAIREification. I love being over here at Kelly’s sweet place and I am excited to share some {crazy} fun Toilet Paper Roll Wall Art today! I love easy and budget-friendly ideas and this one certainly is just that!

First, I took my little stash {that I had to hide so The Husband wouldn’t pitch it!} of toilet paper rolls (and a few paper towels rolls too)…

Toilet Paper Roll Art w/ ALittleClaireification.com #crafts #DIY #ArtI measured out the rolls in one inch increments and marked with a sharpie:

Toilet Paper Roll Art w/ ALittleClaireification.com #crafts #DIY #ArtI decided to use green and ivory spray paint that I already had on hand. I laid out the first 30 pieces on some newspaper (and prayed for no strong winds!).

Toilet Paper Roll Art w/ ALittleClaireification.com #crafts #DIY #ArtI painted one set green, letting each side dry for a good hour between painting the second side to make sure they were no longer tacky (and who wants to be “tacky” when making wall art out of toilet paper rolls?? Certainly not me! Tee hee). Spray paint on cardboard does take longer to dry than on wood, etc. so it’s important to let it dry completely.

The good thing is that between painting the two sides, the inside also got covered which is exactly what I wanted so make sure you coat thoroughly! Once all of the pieces were completely dry I laid out a pattern that I wanted. This is the fun part because you can do anything you want!

Toilet Paper Roll Art w/ ALittleClaireification.com #crafts #DIY #ArtOnce laid out, I began the process of tacking them all together using hot glue. After looking around at the (GAZILLION) toilet paper roll crafts on Pinterest I noticed some people use Mod Podge but I used hot glue for this project. Maybe I’ll go back and Mod Podge over it all for added adhesiveness.

I placed a few dots of hot glue at each connection of the pieces. In the end, I used all 30 green pieces but I didn’t end up using too many of the ivory pieces, so you can make as many of each as you like depending on how big you want your final piece to be.

Once it was all together, here’s what it looked like!

Hope you enjoyed this fun, little project and that you will stop over soon and say hello! You can find out more about me HERE.

Thanks for being with us today, Claire!!
