You Will Never Look At A Toilet Paper Roll The Same Way Again

Beleive it or not, although there is a snow storm in the North, it is almost seed starting time here in the South. This life hack got me looking for more ways to recycle and reuse toilet paper rolls. I didn't realize there were so many ways to reuse something I tend to toss!

As a seed starter... 

Impromptu iPhone holder...

 For organizing cords...

For keeping wrapping paper from unrolling...

For wrapping small presents... 

Toilet paper roll gift boxes

Add fabric for a jewelry tray...

For the birds...

To manage bathroom appliance cords... 


Fun for  your little pets...

For Teh lulz...

Now that we've looked at the practical, what about the beautiful?

What about mini masks by Junior Fritz Jacquet?


How about something a little less refined but just as fun for the kids? Make a circle or heart stamp for Valentines Day! Use the stamp to make cards and wrapping paper from newspapers!

Another crafty option... Everybody loves owls!

Just because...

Do you have any awesome ways of reusing paper rolls?
