Another one of our recycling lessons involved toilet paper rolls and paper towel rolls. I came across this picture on another crafter's blog and thought it was a fantastic idea!
Isn't this beautiful?! Unfortunately, I don't have the kind of wall space for something this size, but I do have a tiny spot in our master bathroom.
So I grabbed 4 toilet paper rolls.....and flattened them out.
Then I marked off each roll and cut them into 1/2 inch increments.
I hot glued the corners together into tail-like shapes, and then glued each tail gether to form a group of four.
I glued them into two rows and then glued the two rows together to make a small scroll pattern.
Instead of painting them a bright color, I decided to spray just a light coat of brown to make it look a little rusted, like iron.
Then I hung it in the bathroom...before....
Then, I just started playing with what I had left over and made some squares that I painted black. They almost look like iron candle holders...which could be done as well. The possibilities on this are endless.
