You cannot attend a family gathering with my relatives and not be subjected to talk of politics, religion, and yes, a little bit of potty humor. It’s a fact- almost nothing is off-limits at Thanksgiving and Christmas and this year, I will be hosting 32 family members for Christmas Eve dinner. A few posts ago, I wrote about a bathroom design dilemma where the question was begged, “what to do with the guest bathroom?” Well, below you shall find my answer. Not having time, money or energy for a bathroom update at this point – I have instead chosen to decorate it for the holidays with a nod to the ultimate purpose of a restroom.
I searched the internet for “toilet-paper roll wreath tutorials” and all that came up were these creative and quite beautiful versions:
Not at all what I was looking for. I wanted something more organic shall we say? Do you know where I found my template? A photo on a Christmas card at Walmart. (Don’t judge. They’re rolling back prices. Plus, it’s great people watching.)
So my gift to you this Christmas is my very own DIY tutorial on how to make an awesome Toilet Paper Roll wreath for about one dollar. You’re welcome.
You will need:
Floral Wire ($1)
Assorted toilet paper rolls
Garland of your choosing. I had some plastic mistletoe laying around, which I used on my wreath
My wreath was not nearly classy enough with one strand!
Resist the temptation to wipe your butt with the rolls. They will NOT stick together better that way.
Here’s where the superglue comes in. The second layer is built the same way, nestled inside the outer layer.
