If You Give A Mouse A Cookie individual sensory bins (preschool / kindergarten)

Toilet Paper Roll Wall Art, easy DIY craft with household items

I’ve made this before! Super easy (if not a little time consuming.) Just turn on a show & start snipping! They turn out beautifully and unique each time 🙂


 What you need:

Toilet Paper Rolls- the number depends on how large your creation will be

Tacky Glue


Spray Paint

Wall Mount Squares

Patience 🙂


Gather toilet paper rolls. I used about 28 rolls for this project. Paper towel rolls count for approx. three regular sized rolls.

Squish your rolls

Cut slices of the roll to desired thickness. Cut into varying 1/2 inch slices and you will be able to get 12 slices from each roll.

Repeat steps 2 and 3 until you have enough pieces.


Begin gluing pieces together. Try to put most of  the glue on the tip of the piece.

Attach slices together in the form of a four petal flower.

Your finished flower should look like this. Repeat step 6 until you have five completed flowers. Let dry.

CAM00225Now let’s get to it! Gather your toilet paper rolls and scissors. For the width of each strip you can measure if you like and make them even, I just figured 6 strips out of each roll and guessed.


Now take your toilet paper roll and crush it in half and start cutting! This will make the petal decals, or the oval shapes


(Sorry about the flash in the next few pictures) To make the…

How to make baby barefoot sandals / ribbon shoes / photo props

My daughter will NOT wear shoes. (She's her mothers child, what can I say. Lol. ) I have tried soft soled shoes, hard soled shoes, ballet slippers and everyhing in between. Her feet are also super wide, which doesn't help, as it makes most shoes super tight.  I saw a pic of these little doodads online… Continue reading How to make baby barefoot sandals / ribbon shoes / photo props
