I saw this photo on Houzz.com:

I saw a million and one tutorials on toilet paper roll art on Pinterest.


I had a bare section of wall that I needed to fill.

want + need + ability to copy = TP ironwork!

I cut paper towel rolls down to 1″ pieces.
Folded each piece flat and then glued 4 pieces together like an ‘X’.
Make a bunch of ‘X’s’, then glue them altogether.

Spray paint in oil-rubbed bronze finish and voila!

I may have to add another row or two for proper scale – but for now I’m really pleased.

$6.95 for the paint, $1.29 for the hot glue.

Not a bad deal eh?

I’ve seen some comments online that say “it’s gross to use TP rolls” – I’d just like to point out that the roll itself doesn’t get dirty during use.
In fact, the paper doesn’t get dirty until after it’s off the roll and well on it’s way to completing it’s job.  (pun totally intended).
  I didn't make it to the gym today. That makes 5 years in a row.
Have a great one!
