When I last posted about my newest pine cone tree decorations, I asked if anyone had any suggestions for me. Sure enough, Amy from Ms Goody Too Shoes had an idea. She said I should create one using toilet paper! That has become quite the symbol here in the USA of the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic stuff that has put the world on pause. So I decided to join the ranks of those creating other toilet paper themed things like cakes and jewelry.

While I do understand the seriousness of the situation (and I hope you have enough of the essentials), it is also true that Laughter is the Best Medicine. One of the funniest memes that I’ve seen the past two months is the one that said, “Back in my day toilet paper was so plenteous that we used to hang it from the trees of our enemies!”

Everyone, Meet my Toilet Paper Tree!

The Garland

This tree began with some Dollar Tree Tube Confetti. When I saw it several months ago, I thought that it looked like seed beads. Just think! All of these “beads” for one dollar!

Here is a closeup. Being made of metallic foil, this confetti is not very strong. Some of theme are not complete tubes, and so they don’t stay on the string. But it was worth the price.

I would poke a bunch of them onto the needle, and then push them along on my string. I used doily thread for my string.

I made garlands with all three colors, but only used two colors on my tree.

Mini TP

Next, I made faux miniature toilet paper rolls. I used my Cricut Maker to cut the felt for my toilet paper, but you don’t have to have one. You can just cut out the felt with scissors.

I made three different designs– plain straight, torn off, and hotel triangle. Which one is your favorite? My family liked the torn off ones.

I used my silver Cricut marker to put dotted lines for the toilet paper squares.

I folded the brown packing paper pieces in half and rolled them around a straw. Then I rolled the white felt over the miniature tube I had just made. To keep it from unrolling I attached a little hot glue.

Whoever would have thought that miniature toilet paper rolls would look so cute?!

In order to hang the miniature rolls on the tree, I strung them on the pewter garland first.

The Topper

Now you know I had to make a topper for this fantastic mini toilet paper tree!

I used a brown cardboard tube from a roll of deco mesh, and some crepe paper.

I did not roll up all the paper. I pushed a middle section out of the streamer paper. Then I pushed the center out of that, enough to make room for the cardboard tube. I decided not to add an lines for squares on this one.

So the topper is still a mini roll of “toilet paper,” but it is larger than the very tiny ones.

Before adding the topper, I used real toilet paper as streamers going down the sides of the tree. Here is a closeup– on the left you can see the print pattern. (Only 4 squares of real toilet paper were sacrificed for this craft.)

I hope that seeing my Toilet Paper Tree today has made you smile. Don’t you wish that Toilet Paper did grow on trees? : )

  2. Liberty, you definitely have the most unique craft of the hop! I just love your mini toilet paper garland. It’s both cute and funny.
