In recent posts, I’ve shared things you can make with recycled toilet paper rolls with good reason to start saving those rolls. I hope you have been doing that because I have another awesome toilet paper craft project to share with you for making a Toilet Paper Roll Christmas Tree! This tree will hang on your wall and are more beautiful than can be imagined without seeing the photos.
In the original tutorial from ‘ciloubidouille’ they keep the tree the color of the paper rolls, but I think it would look really nice if we first spray painted the rolls green or white, leaving only the tree trunk brown for a more dramatic and realistic effect. The choice is yours.
What you will need:
- empty toilet paper rolls (approximately 50)
- hot glue gun and sticks
- (optional) green or white spray paint
- small red ornaments to adorn the tree
- scissors or razor knife
Begin by cutting each roll into 3 equal sections resulting in 3 smaller rolls.
Working on a flat surface, stand each of the smaller rolls you have cut on their ends and place one at the top that will be the top of your tree, glue 3 more under the top one and continue to do this down your tree adding a few more cut rolls for each roll that will gradually widen your tree until you reach the height you want your tree to be.
Once your tree is complete, you now have the option of spray painting it if you prefer it be another color such as green or white. if so, take it outside and lay it flat on newspaper or other clean surface and spray paint your tree. Allow to dry completely before proceeding to the next step.
Use 6 of the cut rolls as your tree truck, semi flattening them as shown below and glue them together as well as gluing them to the bottom rolls of your tree.
When you have done that, your tree should look like this below.
Lastly, decorate your tree with ornaments anyway you choose. You can even place a star on top. Be creative!
