How to make a TP Craft Caddy
Easy

Move over coffee filters .... there's another dirt cheap household item that we have turned into a gorgeous DIY project .... ummmmm yes, those are toilet paper rolls. Who knew the toilet paper roll could be used for something other than pre-school crafting. This is a totally awesome grown-up DIY project made with good ole toilet paper rolls! AND it just happens to be Earth Day .... so this is a perfect recycling DIY project .... minus the spray paint of course : ) 

Can we say freaking gorgeous and totally practical?

Side shot.

What you need:
24 regular toilet paper rolls
Hot glue
7 1/4" x 10 3/4" piece of cardboard
Spray paint OR Eco-friendly paint - it is Earth Day : ) 

After you hot glue all your toilet paper rolls together you will want to hot glue your cardboard base to the bottom on all the edges. Let dry, then spray paint.

I just love this.

DIY Toilet Paper Craft Supply Caddy

What you need
24 regular toilet paper rolls
Hot glue
7 1/4" x 10 3/4" piece of cardboard
Spray paint OR Eco-friendly paint - it is Earth Day : ) 

Directions
1. Stand all your toilet paper rolls on end and using hot glue, place a small dab in between each roll so they all stick together. You should have 4 rows of 6 rolls.

2. Hot glue your sheet of cardboard to the base of all the rolls. If you bought a bigger sheet just trim to size with scissors once it's glued to the base. Let dry for 5 minutes.

3. Spray paint your caddy. All done!

do you think you could paint them BEFORE you glue them? I have so many 1/2 cans of house paint...I thought maybe I'd use that and roll a few of them in glitter and then glue? will the glue stick to paint? I'll let you know :)

I'll probably make this but not w this many rows. I have a lot of tt rolls saved up for making other things. I probably have enough for everything!
