Whenever we think of doing something involving a little art and craft, we always tend to buy art and craft material from the store but hardly notice anything lying around our house that could be used as perfect crafty materials. For example, the common toilet paper rolls, which usually end up in the garbage bags, are very good craft materials for making numerous artworks for your children as well as for yourselves too. So, here are some highly creative works made out of empty toilet paper rolls which will surely inspire you not to throw away this amazing and free crafty material:
- Magical castle made up of toilet paper rolls
If you have a daughter who loves playing princess then this is an amazing opportunity to help her build her own royal castle. These toilet paper rolls can be easily used for the castle décor like turrets and towers and for the nearby tree trunks. Therefore, presenting your own princess with her own castle will really inspire your kids to be more creative in the future too.
- Seedling containers
Whenever we think of planting some indoor plants, our first step is to head to the nearby store and buy some seedling containers. However, we always fail to see that the usually discarded toilet paper roll can come in handy as seedling containers for your indoor plants. So, why spend your hard-earned cash on some small containers when you make one yourself at home.
- Little monsters
If you have a penchant for painting and drawing characters out of comic books or create your own fantasy characters, then you can easily give life to your hobby by drawing them over on toilet paper rolls and placing them in your children’s bedroom or you can even use them as showpieces in your living room. This is a great way to nurture your inner drawing skills and inspire your kids to combine art and junk materials for producing beautiful artworks with their own hand and without spending any money.
