Toilet Paper Roll Sunflowers

Materials:

  • 7-10 toilet paper rolls
  • Paint
  • 2 coffee cups, knitting needle, and tape (optional)
  • Hot glue gun and glue sticks

 

Instructions:

  1. Measure the space where you want your flower to be.  You’ll need to know how wide your space is so you know how large to make your flower.  For me, my flower has to fit in a 24” space.
     
  2. Next I’m going to cut up all my toilet paper rolls.  The amount you need will depend on how big your flower is.  For a flower about 24” wide, I used 7 toilet paper rolls and 1 paper towel roll.  One toilet paper roll should yield you anywhere from 14-16 petals.
     
  3. To make your petals, flatten your toilet paper roll.
     
  4. Cut slices about ½ inch wide.  It’s helpful to build your flower as you cut so you don’t cut extra toilet paper rolls that you can use later on!

  5. Here’s my flower so far.  I also have some extra petals just in case.  Make sure you take a picture of your design so you have something to refer to when it’s time to assemble your flower.

27 Uses for Toilet Paper Rolls

Do you love toilet paper roll crafts as much as we do?  Be sure to check out this awesome collection of 27 Uses for Toilet Paper Rolls for even more great ideas for using up those cardboard tubes!


 


  1. I like to paint my petals after I’ve cut them…that way I can paint the cut part of the paper as well.  If you’d rather paint the rolls before you cut them, go right ahead.  Either way will work.
     
  2. To paint my petals, I turn 2 coffee cups upside down and tape a long knitting needle to the bottom of the cups.  After I paint a petal, I put it on the needle to dry.  The paint washes off the needle with soap and water, but if you’re worried about your needles, you could also use a stick, rod, or pencil to dry your petals.

  3. Once your petals are dry, you can start gluing them together.  With a hot glue gun, add a little dab of glue to one side of the petal and begin creating the inside of your flower.

  4. You can then begin gluing petals between the spaces of your starter flower until it’s as big as you want it to be.

  5. As I began gluing, I decided to make 5 different flowers rather than one large one.
