On a TP Roll!


I've been a busy little bee making a whack of toilet paper roll wreath Christmas ornaments (as per this tutorial here)!



These will be sold at a craft fair to raise money for two of my nieces' educational trips. I've never sold my crafts in this way before. It's a bit of an experiment... But fingers crossed that they go like dag-gum hotcakes!

  5. Michele - Nester Smith has a link party up for Christmas ornaments. I wanted to post this for you there, but I do have some sense of boundaries. Love this! Anyway, pinned it directly from here. Awesome.

  12. Another great idea! So is this just one TP roll per wreath? How big across are they? So pretty! You do amazing things with TP rolls. I was actually looking at our recycle bin today and thought of you. You'd cringe becuase in the bin was an egg carton!!! I seriously thought of you and felt guilty, but then talked myself down by saying, it's ok, I just don't have time right now to make something out of this one! :)

    1. Hi Louise, if you'd like to know how to make them, I've provided a link to the tutorial above. They are about 6 inches across and you need 2 tp rolls for each. And, oh gosh, don't worry about the egg carton in the recycling, for goodness sakes! If it was in the garbage I'd certainly frown but you are recycling them so that's awesome! :)

  13. Well, they're beautiful. How nice that you're helping her. I'm sure they'll go like hotcakes!!!

  14. Hope the sale went well. Your little wreaths are beautiful!!! I absolutely love the way the bright saturated color of the inside of the tube shows through and accent the gold outside. I imagine they are gorgeous on a tree! Or in a window!
