WHEN:
Whenever I goshdarn can. Lay off me.

WHY:
Because looking at other people's ideas is awesome fodder for my noggin so shouldn't I share a decent idea that someone else can make perfect? Send me a pic if you make something similar to what I post!

WHO'S THIS "ME"?
I am Lynn. I'm an urban planner by training, and a maker of random items by vocational calling. I do my projects in my apartment in Brooklyn, or on the stoop or roof. If you see a 5' 3 7/8" female breaking concrete blocks out on your street, you probably live on my block.

Toilet paper roll Christmas tree…$5

Don’t have time/effort/need for a real Christmas tree?  Me neither.  Do you use toilet paper?  Me too.  It sounds like you may be the perfect candidate to make this toilet paper roll Christmas tree.  Return those toilet paper rolls to whence they came - make them back into a tree! 

You need:

  • A bunch of toilet paper rolls (I used 45)
  • Stapler
  • Spray paint

Want to see the steps? 

Costs = <$5: 

  • Spray paint = $4.40
  • Everything = free or already available around the house

How to:

  • This project is ridiculously simple.  Just lay out the pyramid shape and start stapling.  Staple towards the openings, front and back.
  • Voila, a pyramid shape.  I liked the idea of using a book as the tree stump, though I’m sure some more rolls would do the trick as well.
  • Even without any spray paint this looks pretty cool.
  • Spray painting on the roof - wear gloves and mask!!
  • There she is.  A grand Christmas gesture?  Perhaps not.  But it’s not nothing.  And I’m all for stuff that’s not nothing.
