Toilet Paper Roll Wall Art 1

Step 1

Gather your supplies. For this project, I used plain old toilet paper roles, (the number you need depends on what design you decide on for your project, mine used around 13 I think…) glue, and a bushed metal appearance spray paint.

Step 2

Crush your toilet paper roll in half, and cut it crossways. You could measure if you like, but I just guess-timated based on the look I was going for. For my project, each toilet paper role yielded 6 “petals”.

Step 3

Keep cutting until you’ve got tons of these, the basic unit for your piece.

Step 4

Begin glueing the “petals” together. How you do that depends on what kind of pattern you’re going for.

Step 5

I found that using bobby pins (any type of clip would work too) to hold my pieces together was helpful. It gave the glue between each segment a chance to dry while I continued glueing…

Step 6

Since a 5 petal flower shape was the basis for my piece, this is what most of my base units ended up looking like. After I made a bunch, I glued them all together in a pattern I liked, and also added a few other viney/leafy looking segments here and there.

Step 7

Once you’re happy with how your piece looks, time for spray paint! (I used a metal finish paint, but any color will do!)

Step 8

Wait until it dries, and you’ll have something like this! (Please note I didn’t spray paint every piece individually, this is just an example I did for the tutorial. When I actually made my wall art, I glued the entire thing together first, then painted it as a whole.)
