100’s of things to do with toilet rolls

When I have some time, I like to browse on pinterest.  I think that if I had much more time on my hands I would be doing a lot more browsing!  If you want to follow me, go here 🙂

After finding a huge stash of collected toilet roll inners, I was wondering what on earth I could do with them besides the usual (I use them to start off my seeds so I don’t disturb the seedling roots when I transplant them like this)  So, Google and Pinterest it was!  I found loads of ideas.  Some of my favourites are these:

 

Make little owls: http://pinterest.com/pin/4292562116404203/  I love owls!

Bird houses: http://pinterest.com/pin/4292562116464126/  Could also be made into little fairy houses or somehow incorporate a candle for a pretty night-time effect.

Have your toddlers practise threading: http://pinterest.com/pin/4292562115140432/  I’ll be trying this one with my daughter this week.  Use tape to make the end of the wool firm.

Pretty jewelry or decorations: http://pinterest.com/pin/4292562115177858/

Stamping: http://pinterest.com/pin/4292562114977993/  Make your own wrapping paper 🙂

And these are just gorgeous:  http://pinterest.com/pin/4292562114747138/
