Toilet Paper Crafts For Holidays and Special Occasions

Toilet Paper Crafts For Holidays and Special Occasions

When you think of craft materials, any number of mediums and embellishments can spring to mind. There are the standard bases, like cloth, felt, and cardboard. And of course, when thinking of embellishments, sequins, pipe cleaners and ribbon jump into your head. But, how often do you start feeling crafty and think--gee, I feel like making art with my toilet paper today? I'll bet you dollars to dimes that this doesn't happen on a regular basis.

 

Well, unless you're Linda Wright. She's the author of Toilet Paper Crafts for Holidays and Special Occasions. When I saw the book on sale I thought the concept was special indeed. How could you possibly decorate with toilet paper outside of tossing rolls into your teammate's tree during homecoming week?

After taking a closer look at the book, however, I have to admit I was eating my words—or thoughts as the case may be. Within its pages are 60 fun, and surprisingly elegant crafts in the book and you'd be hard pressed to find a flaw in their designs. From simple Halloween ghosts and spooky skull masks for El Dia de Los Muertos to gorgeous wreaths worthy of Easter or Christmas, this book has some amazing ideas.

 

If you're into alternative craft materials, you have to look into this book. It's surprising how beautiful Wright's pieces are considering what they're made of and what it's for. I haven't tried any of the crafts myself, but I'm sincerely tempted, just to see how difficult it is to work with good, old-fashioned TP.
