This MacGyver has not been stumped by bottle caps, binder clips or wine corks, but when our own Marianne Canada asked me for inspiring arts and crafts featuring toilet paper roll tubes, I knew I would be facing my greatest challenge yet. Would I find suitable projects in time for Monday’s post?! Well, I think I scraped by, but you be the judge.
This flowery wall art from growing up creative via Design*Sponge looks so cool, no one would guess it came from a family pack of bathroom tissue. Paint it any color you want, or leave it plain and pin it up!
Toilet paper roll tubes as party favor savers? If it sounds strange, let these cute examples from Crissy’s Crafts change your mind. (Or take a peek at these little birdies for a more grown-up spin on the idea.)
Do you have some tiny MacGyvers at home that are itching to get crafty? Save your toilet paper rolls for a rainy day (like today here in NYC, ugh) and make these toilet paper roll blooms from Parents magazine together. Who knew such colorful flowers could come from dull cardboard?
Did you tame these toilet paper tubes with plenty of time to spare? Take a look at these advanced MacGyver arts and crafts — you won’t believe the detail on these rolls.
