1. Metallic craft caddy (h/t Lily Shop)
You'll need to save up quite a few toilet rolls for this project, but it's so easy to make! The golden metallic color is undeniably fun, but you could use any other color or even decorate your caddy with bits of fabric, glitter, or other decorations.
2. Napkin rings (h/t Crafting A Green World)
Are you planning to throw a fancy dinner party or another sort of special event? These can be customized to match your dishes, your decor, or even your party theme. I bet you never thought toilet paper rolls would ever make an appearance at your dinner table, but there's a first time for everything.
3. Paper seedling pots (h/t Burlap And Denim)
Why bother buying seedling pots from the store when you can make your own using things you already have on hand? These are eco-friendly and very inexpensive, but the best part is that you can put them straight into the ground when you're ready to plant your seedlings!
4. Tiny gift boxes (h/t Practically Functional)
These gift boxes were made for Valentine's Day, but they'd also make great party favors or thank-you gifts. Fill them with candy, chocolates, or any other tiny present!
5. Flower wreath
This wreath looks a bit complicated to make, but it's surprisingly easy! In fact, all you need is a hot glue gun, a good number of toilet paper rolls, and perhaps a bit of spray paint if you don't want a brown wreath.
6. Paper daisies (h/t Craft Ideas)
If you don't want to hang a flower wreath on your wall, why not make a few little cardboard daisies to brighten up your windowsill? You can make some green leaves with toilet paper rolls, or simply stick the flowers into one of your green plants for a pop of color.
7. Tiny lanterns (h/t The Crafty Crow)
These little lanterns would look right at home in Chinatown, but I think they'd look even better strung up around my porch! There are so many ways you could display these: sitting on their own, hung up on a garland, or even attached to a string of white fairy lights.
8. Pencil case (h/t Moms And Crafters)
This pencil case looks like it came from the store, but it was made with little more than toilet paper tubes and duct tape! I love the size of it; it's big enough to hold a few different pens and pencils, but small enough to throw in your purse.
9. Toothpick holders (h/t Carolyn's Homework)
These adorable little toothpick holders will make you want to put your toothpicks out on display! Decorate them with your favorite paper, and feel free to embellish them with whatever other decorations you like.
10. Wreath (h/t Proverbs 31 Life)
Wreaths don't have to be saved for Christmas, but this one would look great on your front door at any time of year! It's so elegant that nobody will ever guess you made it using toilet paper rolls.
11. Decorative pumpkin (h/t Domestically Blissful)
These would be the perfect fall centerpiece! The pumpkin in the front is covered with orange glitter, but the one in the back is decorated with pages from an old book. The creative options here are endless!
12. Cord organizer (h/t Our Thrifty Ideas)
Do you hate your cords getting tangled up as much as I do? These cord organizers are the perfect blend of cute and functional! The ones in the image below were decorated with washi tape, but you could use everything from fabric scraps to stickers to paint.
13. Shape stamps (h/t Mama Papa Bubba)
Most of these projects are aimed at adults, but this is a kid-friendly craft that's perfect for your next rainy day. The little ones will have a ton of fun using these simple stamps, and who knows, you might find a use for them as well!
14. Hanging bird feeder (h/t The Resourceful Mama)
This is such a clever way to feed the birds that visit your yard, and it's a fun project for all ages! The birdseed is stuck to the toilet roll with peanut butter, and you don't need anything but a simple piece of string to hang it up.
15. Faux metal mirror frame (h/t Life Of A Star)
This is the perfect way to spruce up a simple mirror that doesn't have a frame! You could trick people into thinking the frame is metal if you paint it black or gold, but it would look good painted whatever color matches your decor.
