DIY hacks you can get organized with toilet paper rolls. This is a fun project that allows your child to get their desk or art table organized! Kids can use recycled toilet paper rolls or use these sturdy craft rolls to create a desk organizer perfect for holding their pencils, markers, crayons, and scissors. Happy Crafting!
In the world of DIYs, it is nearly impossible to not find a solution for any problem that exists. From repairing damaged sinks to replacing old lamps as storage boxes, anything can be done. Often, toilet papers add up to a disposable waste of the house, which in turn later causes many environmental issues. Thus, instead of letting one small spare object causing a big problem, we can take measures so that all unused waste items are used up one way or the other.
In this way, we can make various household items which are not only gorgeous but also serve useful purposes as they are quite dutiful too. In this post, we will see how to make productive use of untouched toilet paper to make desk organizers.
What You’ll Need:
- Craft Rolls
- Origami Colored Folding Squares (6×6)
- Pastel Paper Pack (similar)
- Self-Adhesive Jewels
- Rickrack Trim
- Small Serving Tray
- Double-Sided Tape
- E6000 Craft Adhesive
- Tacky Glue
- Craft Knife
- Small Detailing Scissors
Step 1: Get the craft rolls
Here we have craft rolls of different sizes here to make the desk organizer. These various sizes will have various purposes to keep different types of things stored inside them.
Step 2: Wrap the origami coloured paper squares around the rolls
Then we wrap the coloured squares around the craft rolls.
Step 3: Prepare another paper roll
Similarly, another paper roll can be prepared by taping it so that the roll stays stable.
Step 4: Wrap paper around it in the same process
In the same process, we wrap paper around the other craft rolls to make many more such replicas of them.
Step 5: Apply craft glue on the accessories to be pasted on the rolls
Now, we need to decorate the desk organizers. We can do that by pasting coloured paper cut in various patterns across the rolls. This can be done in any form, shape or pattern.
Step 6: Pasting the stones
The self-adhesive jewels are now pasted on the surfaces of the rolls strategically to make them prettier.
Step 7: Sticking the rolls to their base
And in the final step, we have the prepared desk organizers ready to be stuck on the surfaces of tables or trays, wherever they’ll be supported on. After applying a thin rim of glue to the bottom of the roll, we stick it to the base of the desk/tray on which it will stand.
Our desk organizers are ready!
Don’t these look pretty? The stationeries also get a storage space instead of lying around haywire, so making this out of waste items is always a win0win for all. New useful items made, and fun too!
