TP Art

Okay, okay, technically it's not toilet paper art, it's toilet paper roll art. Of course this is one of my Pinterest finds and probably one of my first projects that I've completed from Pinterest. I don't even want to count how many more projects I have pinned on there!

I started out by creasing and cutting up our toilet paper rolls (after saving many!). Then I started lining them up until I could find a design I liked best.
In the end, I decided to go with one long pattern

I took it outside and went a bit too crazy with the spray paint. This was also my first spray paint project. I went through a full can and had to buy more. It was very difficult for my to get the paint to stick and get in all of the crevices. Maybe I should have painted the pieces before hot gluing them together?

It is currently hanging in out entryway. I like where it is, but not sure if it will stay here for the long haul.
