Make the Cutest Christmas Decorations Out of Old Toilet Paper Rolls

With the holiday season, you may be looking for some fun craft ideas to decorate your home and keep your kids busy. Enter the humble toilet paper roll—often discarded it can be the perfect canvas for your holiday craft. Here are some fun ways to upcycle those old toilet paper rolls into adorable Christmas decorations.

Festive Ornaments

Transform toilet paper rolls into eye-catching Christmas tree ornaments. Cut the rolls into rings of equal width, then press and shape them into stars or snowflakes. Paint them, sprinkle glitter, or wrap them in colorful paper to add that holiday sparkle. For extra effect, string them together with twine or ribbon to hang on your tree.

Whimsical Snowmen

Similarly, you can create a snowman family out of toilet paper rolls! Stack two or three rolls to form the snowman’s body, then paint them white. Use buttons, beads, or drawn-on features for the face and a piece of fabric or felt for a scarf. Make tiny top hats from black paper or fabric scraps for an extra touch. 

Reindeer Figurines

Paint your toilet paper rolls brown and add details like antlers made from twigs or pipe cleaners, googly eyes, and a red pompom for Rudolph’s nose. These little reindeer make adorable tabletop decorations or mantelpiece accents.
