July 4th is next week, and Pete just bought us a huge flag to hang outside our home. So that’s our decorations, basically. But we needed something for the inside too. So I quickly made this DIY Patriotic Toilet Paper Rolls Craft.
If you have a couple minutes, you can easily put this together before July 4th. I had everything I needed for it at home because yes, I save all our empty toilet paper rolls to craft with. I also have an overabundance of acrylic paint too.
DIY Patriotic Toilet Paper Rolls Craft
What You’ll Need:
- Red acrylic paint
- White acrylic paint
- Blue acrylic paint
- Paint brush
- Paper plate
- 3 empty toilet paper rolls
What You’ll Do:
Paint one of the tubes red, one white, and one blue.
Let them each dry completely on the paper plate, then paint a second layer. I usually paint the first layer up and down and the second layer side to side. That reduces the chance that you’ll visually see brush strokes.
Let them dry overnight.
Group them together, then tie the burlap around them. Tuck any extra burlap behind the knot.
