¡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: http://www.porcuatrocuartos.com/marco-espejo-tubos-carton/3598
finally something for toilet rolls
My post is older, but the instructions are all there for a toilet paper tube wreath http://bonnindesigns.blogspot.com/2011/10/inspiration-is-in-your-bathroom-holiday.html
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!
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.
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!
But yet you use it on your private parts …..hmm
Who uses toilet paper rolls on their private parts?
If you microwave your toilet rolls prior to using them, for 10 to 15 seconds each the germs will disappear, try this.
I think there are a lot more real concerns than this, seriously I like to be clean but I am glad I am not that uptight.
And just where do you keep all of your toiletries? You’re pretty bizarre!
Always flush toilet with lid down to prevent spread of germs and animals drinking out of toilet bowl
When ever I flush, I close the lid first, then flush so excess water doesn’t come out.
How long do you leave an empty paper roll sitting there? Don’t most folks replace them with a full roll once the empty core is left? And I get the info about the water vaporizing, but the paper is always covering the roll until it is time to change it, right?
Exactly what I was thinking!
Are you aware every time you touch a doorknob, push a grocery cart, etc. unless you use a sanitary wipe, surfaces are covered with germs. Also consider the hundreds of people walking around you in a store; sitting beside you in a movie theater-you are breathing their exhaled breath- Jr. has a cold, Jr’s coming down with flu; kids have their fingers in their mouth, then touch a grocery item, mommy tells them to leave it alone—–is everything sanitized again??? You’d probably get terribly sick if you were aware of all that happens that you do not see……………….
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.
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.
You are so right. If people only knew how many germs they come in contact with on a daily basis, even in their own homes, they’d be amazed. They’re going to worry about germs on a tp roll! Omg, I didn’t wipe my butt with the tissue tube for goodness sakes. Hahaha
I know right.. Good gosh!! ?
Living in a bubble with absolutely no germs to be seen actually can make people sicker when they finally do become in contact with a germ. Our bodies make anybody to fight off germs. If our body is not used to making these antibodies to fight off the germs then our bodies have no use to try to make the antibodies. Which in turn these you with the dilemma of the germs doing whatever they want to you because you sheltered yourself for making the antibodies so long.
Craft away with toilet rolls, craft your way with mud pies, drink out of the hose when you’re on your break. Trust me, if we have survived this long on this planet, then we will keep surviving even with the germs.
I absolutely love all these ideas. And I think I might make my own fragrant sachet bags out of them. Thank you for the wonderful ideas! ♥️
Well spoken! 🙂
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.
So cute! I’ve been saving my rolls for a while (19!) and now I have something fun to do with them! 🙂
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
I appreciate all the cute ideas given…I love to do crafts with my grandchildren, all 22 of them.
* If there are those who don’t feel comfortable using tp rolls, by all means use the paper towel rolls. Let’s be nice…this wonderful lady was just trying to share some craft ideas repurposing things we all have around our homes. I for one enjoyed reading and seeing all the cute pics.
Keep sharing! =)
If u feel uncomfortable using toilet paper rolls, there is such a thing call Lysol spray, to kill any germs! I have mine saved in a box and all u have to do is spray inside the box with a disinfectatior and close the lid!!
Urine is sterile. If u keep your toilet clean shouldn’t be a problem there. Never saw poop vaperize before. If you are so worried abt germs look at your cell phone. Your own mouth is way more filthy then that poor tp roll. Door handles are also more germy then that toilet paper roll. Maybe you need to read more. Or try working at a hospital as I did. Ignorance is bliss I always say.
Well said I can only agree .Worked in hospital my self
Urine is only sterile until a bladder infection occurs. And, no, I don’t have a fear of using toilet paper rolls for craft projects. I especially liked the Easter Bunny candy holder! Happy Crafting!!
Great job.keep it up 🙂
Your ideas are really fun. Boy ,I’d hate to live in such an uptight state. Be aware, do what you can do. But not right to tear another person down.
You all have no life
Germs can’t live on a dry surface for very long. So unless you keep your toilet paper rolls moist, should be no problem. Of course, use what you are comfortable with, I get the “ick factor” here; but it really shouldn’t be much cause for health concern.
This is a wonderful site you have put a lot of time and effort into it to help parents with their children. I am not creative so I need sites like this to help me think of things to do with my grandchildren. Thank You so much. Now for everyone who has turned this site into a germ problem I have to say I am amazed at people. It is common sense if you don’t like something change it yourself but this poor women’s page is not for posting your germ problems. You should be thanking her for her time and effort.
I can’t find #48 tpaper tube polka dot tulips.
i love these my kid even likes to help with some of them.
I’m going to try some these crafts. Thank you for posting. Forget about all the stupid people who just want to put you down. Keep posting…love your ideals.
if you fold the middle of the toilet paper roll you can use it for a heart shape.You can use it like a heart shape stamp.
Your ideas are wonderful keep them coming.IF mothers do not want to use the toilet rolls its up to them.
love a lot of the ideas – and have been making basic stuff with my kids from them for years and never ever had anyone ill, you can also use rolls from plastic wrap & alfoil as well. If your paranoid about germs – you can spray them with Glen 20 or similar. of course it is all up to us individuals to make the decision to use or not – I will be trying to make some no worries
Very cute ideas!!! Have been saving rolls for a while and the Grandaughters love to do crafts!!! Me …I like the flowers over the door!!!
For those of you who complained about the use of toilet paper rolls all I can say is that your bathrooms must be rather dirty. Are you so environmentally friendly that you also use the cardboard rolls as you would use the paper? Hmmm. Item used after the corn cob?
I would guess thar the hands working with the toilet paper rolls come with far more germs than the oiler paper rolls
love the ideas thanks for sharing will be using toiletpaper rolls, paper towel rolls, and wrapping paper rolls. Lot of fun again thank u
My grandchildren love these crafts we have so much fun making them together thanks
What types of TP tubes are good for crafts? I currently use Cottonelle and there is so much TP glued to the tube, it’s impossible to remove it all. Any “clean” brands out there before I go out and try every brand? Thanks!
A lot of generic brands are pretty clean,
I find it interesting in every one’s comments but about the germ part I should say that we r living in a world full of parasites and bacteria anything we touch or hold is contaminated even to the wares that are put up, the shower, brooms etc they r everywhere do if you take it serious then u should be wearing a full sterile suit and gloves all day long… Lol
I took the paper towel one cut them filled with a prize & treat . Then paper wrapped them with a theme ( this was a cruise theme) & ribbon. Place next to each place setting for a fashion show gift
there is not 50
Germs do not live on cold hard surfaces in your bahrom!
I have OCD. lol You do not use the tp roll to wipe your butt. I am an Activities person in a nursing and rehab facility, I use these all the time. They are great for crafts. There are germs everywhere. If you are that germaphobic, wash your hands.
Thank you for all the great ideas you share with what goes into the bin. As for germs it is everywhere. A place or a thing can look clean as ever but it is not germ free.
I must have seen some project somewhere after Christmas last year so I started saving with no special plan in mind
If I can hide and save them before hubby burns them great. We have
3 bathrooms. I probably have 150 now
And my granddaughter loves to do crafts. Gotta figure out what we should make
I make toilet roll fire logs. I stuff one until it’s really tight then with all the left over wax from candles including babybel cheese wax, I melt them and dip the toilet roll into the wax. During winter I use the logs in my chiminea! That way I recycle 2 things and benefit from the logs.
Money is one of the dirtiest things we come in contact with. I worked at a convenience store a few years ago as a cashier; a man came in to make a purchase with money that was so dirty and stinky that my boss told the man that put up the stock to go wash the money.
Love your TP Crafts, Thank you for Sharing, and hope you continue to do so.
You have wonderful ?s. And I haven’t laughed so hard in my life at the clean freaks. Thanks. And for Mary Peterson we use Sam’s club Members mark it doesn’t stick to the roll much at all.
I know the germ comments r not recent, but I would like to provide some thought provoking info that I hope helps everyone to understand that the risk of exposure to germs using tp rolls for crafts does not put us at high risk for germ exposure:
? In 2012 a University of Arizona Researcher found that 72% of shopping cart handles contained traces of fecal matter and 52% contained traces of E.coli. The handles of shopping carts r dirtier than most bathrooms!!!
? In a 1/2019 article in Time Magazine, it was stated that research has shown that our personal cell phones carry 10 times more bacteria than an average toilet seat does.
I have seen far more youngsters with cell phones in their mouths than I have chewing on a craft made out of tp roll.
We live in a dirty dirty world!!! SMILES ?
“Pretty much everyone has access to toilet paper rolls”. (Clearly this post was pre-coronavirus)
Very good ideas
