Toilet paper is a household essential, but logically we always chuck away the finished ones in the trash without ever thinking whether there are ways in which they can be reused to our advantage.
It turns out that toilet paper rolls are far more useful than we give them credit for. Here are a few practical DIY uses for toilet paper rolls you probably never thought of.
1. Decorative art mirror
You can add some flair to your walls by creating this decorative element using a mirror and a used up roll. Cut the roll into smaller sections and glue them together before placing them around a mirror for an unexpected effect.
2. Create storage container for toy cars
Rather than having your child’s toy cars scattered throughout the house creating havoc and danger, make this nice little toilet paper roll garage. Neat and tidy!
3. Seed starter
Cardboard is awesome for seed starters because the cardboard will degrade and decompose over time. This will allow your plants to grow and blossom.
4. Desk organizer
If you need a place to store pencils, pens, and other office supplies, you can create this neat and cute stationary organizer. Spray paint numerous toilet paper rolls a solid color, and then simply attach each roll to a piece of cardboard.
5. Nature-inspired pencil holder
Look in your backyard for some twigs, then glue them to the toilet paper rolls to create a wonderful nature-inspired pencil holder.
6. Bird feeder
Cover a roll with peanut butter, and then coat with bird seeds for your avian friends.
7. Cord organizer
Wrap up cords in a toilet paper roll to keep them neat and organized. The best part is that you won’t ever have to untangle them!
8. Organize your yarn
Wrap yarn around around a roll and keep it in one place.
9. Organize your scarfs
Place toilet paper rolls in an empty drawer, then roll your scarves up and fit them inside a roll for easy and convenient storage.
10. Wrapping paper storage
Securely store wrapping paper by using rolls to prevent it from unraveling and becoming bent.
