Toilet Paper Roll Christmas Crafts

Toilet paper roll Christmas crafts

 My husband has accused me of mild hoarding.  Why?  I can’t seem to put certain types of things into the recycling. So, as I’ve been pinning away this week, I’ve been on the look out for toilet paper roll Christmas crafts, since that stash has gotten to be fairly large.  There are So. Many. Ideas!  I thought I’d collect them all into one space so that I could figure out what I wanted to do!  I’m going to do my best to organize them a little more into categories.  Have you seen any toilet paper roll crafts that I’ve left out?  Please share!!

Toilet Paper Roll Advent Calendars

This was the first TP Advent Calendar that I came across, and I have to admit that I really like the simplicity!  I’m also a sucker for most anything snowflake themed.  :)  Interestingly enough, the project is courtesy of maya*made – you’ll see another idea from her blog a bit further down!

Maya has an excellent tutorial for this advent / countdown calendar.  More great ideas for things to stuff inside, too!  The look of this one makes me think: IKEA.  But they’d probably charge $15 for this!  :)
Vertical Calendar

I like the candy-look of this one – so bright and cheery and festive!  There’s also a link to a great and simple Advent Devotional in this post, too!  Check it out!

 Simple Nativity

  A simple Mary, Joseph, and Jesus nativity makes a great craft – and this one can be done (with a lot of help) by really little hands or (with no help) by older kids, or even us adults, too!  Go check out her blog here for materials and directions!

This is, perhaps, my favourite of them all.  Simple, oh so cute, and it makes use of those annoying singles of the little baby socks!  I will definitely be trying this one out this year!Santa

These ones are very do-able for little hands, with just a little bit of help!  They would also compliment Santa quite nicely!

The most intricate, and, I think, the most creative of the bunch – TP Christmas Mice!  These wouldn’t last 5 minutes in my house right now with little toddler hands touching everything in sight, but I’ll come back to these in a few years!

The obsession that I spoke of earlier re: my toddler and snowmen has not waned.  As I sit here typing, I have a little voice beside me shouting, ” ‘now man!  ’now man!  ’NOW MAN!!’ ” So, this one might be a good one to do tomorrow.  :)

Cardboard & Scrap Fabric Christmas Tree

Using fabric scraps and an empty coffee capsule, this is a really cute and cheap little Christmas tree craft!
TP Roll Ornament Tree

This craft will definitely make a dent in your tp roll collection!  This would be a fun decoration for a house that won’t be setting up a Christmas tree due to a Christmas vacation, etc., or for an apartment that doesn’t have room for a tree!  
Construction Paper Tree

A cute tree, and easy to make a forest out of these!  Glitter glue makes it easy for really little hands to decorate, too!

 I would probably omit the picture on the front – simple is better in this case, I think! Looks pretty easy to make, though – head over to Whiff of Joy to see how she put it together!
Cardboard Tube Snowflakes

  It’s incredibly hard for me to believe that these are made out of TOILET PAPER ROLLS!  Wow – a little beyond my crafting skill this year, but I just had to include them!

I love the bead in the middle of this one.   It’s simple, yet elegant.  Easy to make, but not cheap looking.  A “win” in my books!
TP Roll Tree Topper

I don’t actually have anything on the top of my tree – I haven’t found the right one in stores yet.  Maybe the answer is sitting in my recycling bin?

  10. Thank you for sharing! It was great to see all these ideas in one place. I fell in love with the mice, so I had to try to make them. They came out great, especially for my first TP project. Merry Christmas!

  15. Those are amazing ideas! They would definitely make great decors for Christmas. Don’t be too sad that your husband called you a hoarder. Haha! It only means that you are able to see beauty in everything. It also means you have a wide imagination and great skills to transform trash into lovely stuff. Good luck on choosing what to make because everything looks gorgeous!
