Toilet paper roll wall art



<
I have a vast space above my front door that needed something... I decided to turn to toilet paper rolls. Inspired by the lovely wall art on http://www.growingupcreative.com/2009/10/eco-kids-craft.html, I determined to do my own super-size creation.


Here's how I did it:


1. Collected 135 toilet paper rolls from everyone I knew

2. Folded the tp rolls and cut into five sections (I didn't measure but just eyballed my cuts)


3. Designed pattern by laying out sections

4. Used a glue gun to attach sections together


5. Spray painted using a metallic paint. It really does look like metal!
