Thursday

TP snowflakes

I'm sure many of you have seen a plethera of ideas when it comes to toilet paper rolls on pinterest.  Lord knows, I have.  I wanted to try my hand at a few projects with them, especially since they cost nothing.  I chose to start out with some simple snowflakes.  I wanted to use them as ornaments and also decorations on some of my Christmas packaging.

Supplies for 4 included 4 toilet paper rolls, cut into 5 pieces each.
Once cut, I glued the pieces together at a point. I then spray painted them with white spray paint that I already had.  While the paint was still wet, I applied a translucent glitter and then sprayed it with a clear glaze.  I gave mine a few coats to seal in the glitter.
To bring the flakes together, I added a snowflake button in the middle to cover up the glue.
I waited a good day before doing anything with these snowflakes. 
Here they are attached to one of my gifts:

I love that idea; what a great way to recycle too; that basket is so pretty--I'd love it if someone brought that to my house!

Hi! Caught my eye over at 30 Days! I am big on tp roll projects. I just made a garland using them...I think I am going to go give them a glitter bath to make them sparkle. :) Great job...so pretty!

This really turned out pretty, Kimberly. I'm always looking for fun things to do with my granddaughter. This craft will have to be one of our next projects. ;)

Thanks for linking to Time Travel Thursday. I hope you'll join the fun each week. Be sure to come by tonight, and see yourself featured.
