Toilet Paper Art

Well, I promised a DIY project, so here it is. This is something that I've been projecting on for a while, so I thought I'd share it with you. 

This is inspired from the wall displays in the Aria in Las Vegas, seen here:



Remember all those great little cardboard cylinders that are left behind when the toilet paper is gone? Yep. I'm talking about all these babies.


Can you tell that I've been saving these up for a while? I don't think I'm lacking on toilet paper lately....

You see all you got to do is cut them down into sections like this...

 
Then the next step is gluing them together... I glue them in 3's, 4's, and even 5's. Like so...


Then you glue those together to start forming a larger flower-esque thing...


And then keep gluing...


And keep gluing and you'll get something like this!



This is on my wall in my kitchen! I absolutely love it!! You can paint it, embellish it, or even frame it! I'm working on framing some of them for display in my bedroom... results coming soon!!

Best of all: it's free!!!
