Anyways, here is how to make this Toilet Paper Roll Wall Decor:
|Pinch the tube and cut along the edge. You want them to be eye-shaped
anyways, so don’t worry about bending them out of shape.
Step 4: After you’ve done a whole bunch of the single ‘flowers’, start making your rows! Start by gluing the top and bottom edges and sticking it to another flower. Make sure they’re dry before you add onto them. Another reason why this project takes some time… This glue isn’t the fastest to dry.
Here’s some more pictorial examples of how to keep adding on to make your rows. Just do it a section at a time and make sure it dries completely before adding on.
Now this looks a lot better! And bigger! It was getting pretty crazy to keep it together!
Step 6: Congratulations! You are now done with all of the blasted cutting and gluing! It’s time to paint! Now, I painted mine all by hand. Yeah, I know. I was crazy, but it was cheaper… I used one and a half bottles of craft paint (just the normal sized bottles) and a nice paint brush that was completely ruined because of this. I would suggest spray painting, because this took a lot of time. But I would imagine just by spray painting you still wouldn’t be able to get into all of the little nooks and crannies, which is why I suggested using both spray paint and craft paint. After a big chunk of the spray painting is done, go back and thoroughly paint by hand the spots that were missed.
Step 8: Hang it! The nice thing about this piece of art is how light it is! I just used clear thumb tacks to keep it up.
*This is where I got my inspiration.
