5 Creative Ways to Reuse Toilet Paper Rolls

What do you normally do with the cardboard roll when you finish the toilet paper? You probably toss it in the trash and go about your day, right? Well, you should think twice before tossing next time because there are plenty of ways you can reuse toilet paper rolls around your house.

Store Collectibles

Does your child collect toy cars? How about action figures? You can create a toilet paper roll garage or storage shelf to neatly organize plenty of things in your home. Not only is it a great way to keep scatter to a minimum, you can also use it to teach your children how to clean up after themselves.

Grow Plants

Fold in the bottom side of a toilet paper roll and use it as a seed starter. Fill the tube with soil and sprinkle in some seeds and over time, your plants will grow and blossom thanks to the decomposing nature of cardboard.

Desk Organizer

Need somewhere to store pens, pencils, staples, scissors or other office supplies? Glue a few toilet paper rolls to a flat piece of cardboard and you’ve got yourself the perfect desk organizer. You can even spray paint and decorate the tubes for an added sense of customization.

Feed The Birds

This is the perfect arts and crafts project for anyone with young children. Have them create homemade bird feeders by applying peanut butter to the outside of the tubes and rolling them in bird feed. Then slide them onto a branch outside for a quick snack when birds get hungry.

Wrap Extension Cords

Tired of having extension cords get tangled into a mess in the closet or garage? Wrap them up nicely and slide a toilet paper tube over the wires so they don’t unravel.
