Toilet Roll Crafts | Metro Rod Deeside North Wales Chester

We're back again to help you with ingenious ways to recycle your old cardboard toilet roll tubes! We've got a few quick crafts here today so grab yourself a cuppa (and a few toilet roll tubes of course!) and enjoy!


  • Cover them in peanut butter and them roll in bird seed.  Hang outside and you've got an easy and inexpensive bird feeder! Simply poke a hole in the top on either side of the tube to slide some string through to hang it on. You can even do the same on the bottom to slide a stick or twig through for the birds to rest on while they're feeding!

  • Cut the tubes into shorter 2" (or you can go smaller) sections - decorate as you see fit (decoupage is a great way to decorate!) and use the smaller tubes as napkin rings when you're entertaining at home!

  • Fed up of your desk being cluttered? You can use those old tubes to make a handy desk organiser!

  • Cut a cereal box as tall as a toilet paper roll.

  • Take the rest of the cereal box and cut them both down to the same size.

  • Glue those together, you now have your base.

  • Hot glue the cereal box that you cut first onto the base.

  • Hot glue the toilet paper rolls onto the base .

  • Apply two layers of spray paint and let dry.

  • How about a little gift box?

  • No cutting required for this one! Simply paint or cover your toilet roll in colourful tissue paper. Then you'll need to be prepared for the fiddly bit. Fold in the sides at the top and bottom so they close against the sides. Decorate with a ribbon and it's that easy!
