One day, I entered my bathroom and noticed I had collected
quite a few toilet paper rolls in my cabinet. The first obvious thing to do is
recycle them. However, I decided to make a quick, easy and cute DIY with them.
Here are the materials you will need:
– Toilet paper rolls
– Acrylic paint (or washable markers if you’re
doing this with smaller kids and want something less messy)
– A permanent marker
Let’s get started!
I first cut some of my rolls to make different sized owls.
Then I pinched the tops of my paper rolls, and folded them over one another.
After that, I painted the rolls in dark blue, gold,
turquoise/mint green and dark purple. I definitely recommend using brighter
and lighter colours so that your owl designs really pop out. You may need to
paint two layers.
Let your rolls dry – this usually takes an hour or two. I
let mine dry overnight. In the morning, I used a permanent marker to bring
my owls to life. Be creative with your designs!
Making these was so much fun! It’s a great craft for kids,
but it can also make cute desk décor. If you end up making owls, send me
pictures in my Ask box and I will repost them. Have a hoot!
