DIY Awesomeness: Toilet Paper Art

You’re in luck!
I have some pretty amazing friends who have some creative Do-It-Yourself projects.  Inspired by those around me, I begged them to share their awesomeness with you. This week I will be posting all the dirt on these fun projects. Get ready! It’s going to be fun!

Starting off Monday strong, from a Russian American, lake house living girl---Lena!



Lena Winn lives in Winona Lake, Indiana and loves creating DIY lovelies. Her and a good friend just started a fun blog on home, design, and fashion. You would be fool to not check it out!

Here’s the dirt on Lena’s easy and innovative toilet paper wall art:

Materials:
·         cardboard part of the toilet paper roll (I posting a request as my status on Facebook, people were willing to give it to me :))
·         regular acrylic paint
·         paint brush

 Paint the rolls and let them dry. (Do this a couple of times.)

Bend the rolls lengthwise and cut into thirds. (FYI-Cutting into 4 pieces would make the thing not stick out as much from the wall.)

Staple the pieces into a pattern. Super glue will work too.

Note: I painted mine brown and only painted on the outside, but obviously that's a matter of taste. 


Talk about making something work! Trash to treasure, gotta love it! Thanks Lena for sharing your fun project! Make sure to check out her blog, Natty Nook.

Yeah!
And the most beautiful thing is, you can make this thing as big or as little as you like. Depending on how much TP you can save.
