Handicraft - Toilet Paper Roll Cross

As the saying goes "One man's trash is another man's treasure", I like to keep toilet or kitchen roll tubes to do recycled craft projects. Not only it is a fun activity you can do with your child, it also helps to guide our children the importance of recycling and how we can transform the discarded materials into purposeful and useful items at home.

Toilet roll tubes are an excellent source of inspiration where you can come up with multiple pieces of art works. Here is one that I did in my course of work which is really easy to make.


- Toilet/Kitchen Roll Tubes
- Glue Gun
- Scissor
- Paints
- Glitter (Optional)


  1. Use a scissor and cut strips of equal width from the tubes. (You need about 30 to make the Cross.)
  2. Paint the toilet roll strips with the colour of your choice. Leave them to dry. (Optional: you can add some glitter glue on your art work after the paint is dry)
  3. Use a hot glue gun to glue the strip together, following the pattern that you like it to be.

With the same principle, you can come up with many focal wall art that does not comes with an expensive price tag for your home. Try it and have fun!
