WW: Toilet Paper Rolls {Linky}

I decided when the pandemic happened that I wouldn't hoard toilet paper. I in fact bought a lot before the pandemic went down. 

Instead of hoarding toilet paper, I hoarded the toilet paper rolls. 

I decided to cut them, paint them, and cut them into 1/4" strips. 


Then it was weaving time! At first I didn't like how the process went. Weaving with thin cardboard isn't quite the same at weaving with fabric. I eventually got the hang of it. Clothes pins work great as clamps. 


The table runner is coming out pretty good. The sections will be painted with varnish. I have to decide if I want to sew them together, or sew them to a fabric backing. 


What crazy projects have you worked on lately?

I love your resourcefulness! The runner is going to look great when it's complete. Such a fun project. I'm in the midst of home improvements right now, so sadly, no crafting for fun for me right now. Also, I received your Etsy order. Thank you so much! I'll be tossing in a few extra goodies for you, too. I hope you enjoy them!

Very creative use for toilet paper rolls! I haven't been one of those TP hoarders either.

I saw it on social media and thought it was cool! I tore apart my Christmas Bulb Tree and am trying to make it prettier. I wish I'd have left well enough alone. ;)
