DIY Wreath

I’ve seen all kinds of crafts made out of toilet paper rolls. Toilet paper rolls are easy to come by and in abundance in my home. Armed with a glue gun and a stash of 21 toilet paper rolls and 2 paper towel rolls (I don’t discriminate) I made a wreath and I like it, I really like it.

Here’s how you can make one, too.


1. Collect toilet paper rolls and paper towel rolls until you have a substantial amount (around 20 or so).

2. Remove all remnants of paper from the rolls, flatten the rolls, measure and cut into strips about 1.5” wide.


3.Using a guide like a salad plate or pot lid arrange pieces to create a base for the wreath.


4. Hot glue the pieces together to create a circle.

5. Continue by arranging and hot-gluing pieces in concentric circles around the base in a design that pleases you.

6. Step back and admire your wreath!

I finished by spray painting the wreath with glitter and adding a bow.


I can’t wait to see what other sorts of crafts I make using my glue gun and toilet paper rolls.

Have you ever made anything using toilet paper rolls?

    We found a printout deal to do a Nativity Scene and tape to TP rolls a couple years ago.

    What glue can I use instead of glue gun?

    • unknownmami

      You can use regular white glue instead, but then you have to use something like clothespins or paperclips to keep the pieces together until they dry.
