Thank you Angel Soft® for sponsoring this post. Ditch the spray and switch to Angel Soft® with Fresh Lavender-Scented Tube.
I enjoy expressing my creative side, and one of my favorite ways to do so is through crafting. I especially like if I can make something new from something old, or from an item that might otherwise get thrown away. Today, I'm sharing one of my latest creations, a flower canvas that I made for my bathroom using upcycled toilet paper rolls. See more below and learn how to make your own through this toilet paper roll art tutorial.
But before I get started with that, let me share something that I was recently introduced to with you. As a mom of boys, the bathroom is pretty much my least favorite room in the house, since it can be the smelliest room in my house at times. I was always using air freshener to rid it of odor, but not anymore thanks to Angel Soft® with Fresh Lavender-Scented Tube.
See, the tube of Angel Soft® with Fresh Lavender- Scented Tube gives off a lovely scent of lavender. Yes, you read that correctly - the fresh, slight scent of lavender is delivered right through the tube of the toilet paper roll. My bathroom has never smelled so fresh, and I can actually ditch the air freshener. It's a win/win. My bathroom smells great all the time, and I'm saving money!
Toilet paper roll art tutorial - how to make a flower canvas
This toilet paper roll art tutorial is pretty simple to do and you will need just a few supplies to make your own.
- 8x10 canvas
- Spray paint - 2 coordinating colors
- 2 empty toilet paper tubes from Angel Soft® with Fresh Lavender-Scented Tube
- sheet of cardboard, or empty box flattened
Step 1. Cut two toilet paper rolls into 1/2 inch strips. You will need 12 strips for this project.
Step 2. Lay 6 toilet paper roll strips on one end of the sheet of cardboard. Lay the remaining 6 strips on the other end.
Step 3. Spray the toilet paper roll strips with the first color. Let dry for 30 minutes.
Step 4. Spray the toilet paper roll strips with the second color. Let dry for 30 minutes.
Step 5. Flip the toilet paper roll strips over and spray each color on the side that isn't painted. Let dry for about 30 minutes, or until completely dry.
Step 6. Apply glue to one edge of a toilet paper roll strip.
Step 7. Stick it on to the canvas and apply light pressure to bond it to the canvas.
Step 8. Repeat step 6 and stick to the canvas right underneath the first one, applying light pressure to bond it to the canvas.
Step 9. Glue and stick the remaining 4 toilet paper roll strips in between the other strips to form a flower.
Step 10. Apply glue to one of the other color toilet paper roll strips. Apply to canvas between two of the other flower petals, as shown above. Repeat these steps until each petal has the alternate color between it.
Step 11. Apply light pressure on all of the petals to ensure that they bond to the canvas.
