100 Things to do with Toilet Paper Rolls
Do you save empty toilet paper rolls when you’re done with them? If not, you should! Check out the 100 things to do with toilet paper rolls and start crafting away!
Once upon a time on Instagram stories I shared a little clip of me pulling the toilet paper roll off the holder and shove it in my toilet paper roll drawer to save for a project later on. Since then I’ve been dubbed the toilet paper roll queen and over and over again people send me ideas of things to do with empty toilet paper rolls.
Toilet paper roll queen is a title I happily accept!

Instead of throwing them away (or, better yet, recycling them) there are all sorts of things to do with toilet paper rolls! Check out these 100 fantastic ideas!!!
