  1. ¡Adoro las manualidades con rollos de cartón de papel higiénico! y por supuesto tengo algunas que aportar. Este espejo es mi manualidad favorita con este material:

    finally something for toilet rolls

  3. Shari B. says:

    My post is older, but the instructions are all there for a toilet paper tube wreath

  4. I can’t get behind using something that has the filthy germs from the bathroom right next to the toilet, for things like food or for kids to play with.You do know that when a toilet is flushed part of the water and the contents are vaporized, right? If the lid isn’t down it can spread up to three feet away. Onto your tooth brush, your makeup, your soap, your floors and counters. So putting that crappy stuff on your dinner table doesn’t appeal to me at all.Paper towel rolls, sure but toilet paper rolls? EW!

    • Julie Finn says:

      I definitely don’t want you to do anything that you’re uncomfortable with, but no, the thought doesn’t personally bother me. I’d like a toilet paper tube, no prob.

    • bethpooler says:

      Brenda I agree about the toilet paper rolls ewE!! So I have saved up paper towel rolls that have not been neat the bathroom nor anything germy! you can cut these down to size as you wish! So enjoy these wonderful crafts with your kids this way!

    • Mommy says:

      But yet you use it on your private parts …..hmm

  5. carole kopera says:

    I would feel the same way –BUT–the crafts I use them for are all sprayed with paint after being assembled. they make beautiful crosses for on the wall and nice gift. I feel the paint covers any germs that might be there.

  6. Lynne says:

    All the germ comments. Seriously?! We really can get over the “Germ-free” obsession. We live on a living planet. You inhale/touch/eat worse on a daily basis in every environment. Get over it. ugg.

  7. Sam says:

    At Christmas I use them to make star ornaments by making deep cuts evenly all the way round, then cutting each slit into a point. Fold the points out flat and pop onto the end of a branch, no need for string. You could paint them if you wanted to, but our tp rolls are white on the inside so I’ve never bothered.

  8. So cute! I’ve been saving my rolls for a while (19!) and now I have something fun to do with them! :)

  9. Claudia Potter says:

    You all know your kitchen is probably dirtier than your bathroom right? Besides if we don’t start recycling more,this old world will be so full of trash you won’t have to worry about germs in your bathroom! Just saying
