Green art with TP rolls

We diligently recycle, but it's not as often that we get to reuse. Here's an adorable idea for reusing those cardboard toilet paper rolls that you're endlessly going through.

Tali from Growing Up Creative came up with this simple but beautiful idea for turning TP rolls into wall art. Here they're mounted on the wall in a kids' playroom (sitting on nails in the wall, so that you get great shadows from off the rolls), but I'm thinking these could also be painted and used as holiday garlands, as table centerpieces or as gift garnishes. So what do you think? Literally trashy or upcycling cool?

Full step-by-step instructions can be found on Growing Up Creative or Design*Sponge.

  1. Why didn't I notice this before? I am so going to find a reason to do this project with my students! It's perfect for our GREEN school - thanks for the idea!
