4. Shape Stamps
If you’ve ever been in to rubber stamping, you know how horrendously expensive it is. One stamp can cost up to $20! Never fear, paper rolls are here! Simple cut your paper towel or toilet paper rolls down to size, then manipulating the cardboard into whatever shapes you want. Making your own stamps couldn’t be any easier (or cheaper!).

5. Toothpick Holder
Toothpicks are an odd kitchen item, but one you always need. The box they came in from the store is definitely not attractive and not functional. I may not have a gourmet kitchen but I don’t want an ugly Target Up & Up toothpick box adorning my counter space. These simple toothpick holders will do just the trick. You can trim your rolls so they are toothpick height and then make the a little more narrow so you don’t have 1000 toothpicks in your holder.
CarolynsHomework.com uses aluminum rolls, but you can just stick with your handy toilet paper ones. Check out her site for the rest of the tutorial and you’re on your way to a cuter kitchen in no time!
Yes, you are looking at the correct picture: that is a wreath made from toilet paper rolls! You’ll need a handful of toilet paper rolls, hot flue and acrylic paint. You’ll paint all your rolls then trim into pieces and reshape them into “leaves.” Then start gluing into 5 piece groupings and then attached into a wreath formation. No one would ever guess this is made from a boring toilet paper roll!
You will need to use Google Translate to get the full gist of KifliesLevendula.blogspot.com since it’s in another language! But there are tons of step by step photos so you’ll be rocking this wreath in no time.
