Toilet Paper Roll Craft: Advent Calendar

Looking for a unique and modern-looking toilet paper roll craft? This clever design is a countdown calendar, suitable for use as an advent calendar, or count down to your favorite event, whatever it is. I love this project, by Morning Creativity, one of my favorite new blogs. Not only does Erlend provide the instructions for this recycled toilet paper roll craft, but he also came up with a list of small trinkets that would fit inside the calendar.

You can also use paper towel rolls, or roll up your own paper if you don’t have enough recycled rolls for this toilet paper roll craft. Get the kraft paper on a roll in the shipping section of your dollar store, or change it up and use scrapbooking paper or some paper you already have on hand. Erlend used a printer to print the numbers on his kraft paper, but you could also use scrapbooking stickers, stamps, or just your own handwriting.

Project Estimate:

  • 25 toilet paper rolls, on hand
  • Recycled cardboard, on hand
  • Glue, on hand
  • Brown kraft paper, $1
  • Scissors, on hand

Total: $1 and up
