Wall Decor Using Paper Towel Rolls

Today I’m going to share with you how I made wall decor using paper towel rolls. These have been floating around the blogosphere and Pinterest for awhile. The only difference is that they are normally made with used toilet paper rolls. I know, I know…HUGE difference right? lol.

It’s nothing spectacular, but it was a free project and I ended up with cool wall art.
And yes, the end result is really cool wall decor. Somehow the paper towel roll thing just makes a wall pop. Wanna see how? Keep reading!

I did not use the little toilet paper roll pictured…just the two paper towel rolls.

Items needed:

- Two paper towel rolls (minimum)
-Hot glue gun


I flattened the roll down and cut out one inch strips with scissors.


I laid out my pattern.


Then used a hot glue gun to glue the edges together.


You end up with four put together like this. Keep doing bunches of four until you run out.


Then you glue them all together in any way that you like. This is the fun part!



I hung the final product in my bathroom (note: there is no natural light source).



For added punch, you could spray paint them :) I like mine how they are.
