This is a super easy craft! When I first tried it, I wasn't so sure how
good toilet paper rolls could look on the wall. But...they turned out adorable!
You will need:
*Toilet paper rolls...I use about 9 for one flower. (Paper towel rolls will work too)
*plenty for staples
Start off with your paper rolls...
Take one, and flatten it out.
Cut the flattened roll into segments approximately the width of your index finger. You should have 5 or 6 segments per roll.
Repeat with all your rolls.
Pinch 2 segments together as shown, and staple the adjoining sides together.
Repeat this adding one segment each time until you have a simple five point flower.
Continue the process by adding layers to your flower to make it as large as you desire.
This could get a little confusing, so I just counted to petals in each of my layers to stay on track and keep my flower even. The count should be:
Layer 1: 5 petals
Layer 2: 5 petals
Layer 3: 10 petals
Layer 4: 5 petals
Layer 5: 10 petals
Layer 6: 5 petals
Once you finish stapling, all that's left is to paint your flower!
Follow the instructions on your spray paint can. Spray from a few different angles to hit all the little crevices with color. Let your flower dry for about 10 minutes, then flip it over and spray the back side as well.
Voilà! A toilet paper roll flower! You can have some fun with it and experiment with different designs too :)
There you have it!
