Seriously. I do not use the word FOLKS lightly.
One of the ways I'm managing my new job AND my blog is
I am very excited to be guest posting on Reinvented! Kimm and her thrifty creations have inspired me from the very beginning of The How-To Gal. Today she has asked me to share with you a literal trash to treasure idea. And what could be more of a trash to treasure Cinderella story than turning toilet paper rolls into beautiful wall art?
Trash to Treasure- Turquoise TP Art
What you need:
•Toilet Paper Rolls- the number depends on how large your creation will be
•3M Wall Mount Squares
Gather toilet paper rolls. I used about 28 rolls for this project. Paper towel rolls count for approx. three regular sized rolls.
Squish your rolls
Cut slices of the roll to desired thickness. I cut mine into varying 1/2 inch slices and was able to get 12 slices from each roll.
Repeat steps 2 and 3 until you have enough pieces.
Begin gluing pieces together. I tried to put most of my glue on the tip of the piece.
Attach slices together in the form of a four petal flower.
Your finished flower should look like this. Repeat step 6 until you have five completed flowers. Let dry.
Beginning attaching flowers together. The toilet paper rolls are pretty pliable at this point, so attempt to line the petals up exactly to form perfect circles.
Attach five flowers together to form a row and then repeat steps 6-9 until you have as many rows as you want. Then glue those rows together. I glued four rows together at a time to create a 5x4 flower grid and ending up making five grids. Finally, I took them out to the garage and spray painted them!
Here is the finished project hung on the wall with 3M mounting squares. Beautiful, right??
Believe it or not, I created another toilet paper creation that hangs on my mantle HERE.
Thank you Kimm for giving me this opportunity! Now start gathering those TP rolls and start gluing!!
At The How-To Gal, I love creating something fantastic out of something forgotten or misused in the past. Having beautiful things doesn't mean you have to pay a fortune for them. Through creative means and a little elbow grease, I believe anything can be beautified. I hope you will join me in my journey to transform the ordinary into one-of-a-kind
