I've seen several things lately using toilet paper tubes, of all things, to create super cute and unique works of art.

Super cute right? And CHEAP!
So here's what I did to make my very own.
I started with toilet paper tubes, paper towel tubes and one ginormous wrapping paper tube
Smash them all in half like so and cut into strips. I didn't measure, but you could. I thought the varying heights gave it a little more interest.
Plus, as you know, I'm lazy.
I ended up with 2 piles because my wrapping paper tube was a different size. In the end I decided it didn't matter and just mixed them all up.
Then pick your design and hot glue them all together. This is very tedious. I suggest watching something fabulous on tv while you do this.
To paint it, I tried to use spray paint, but it didn't want to stick very well. So I used white spray primer instead. You could put paint on top of the primer if you want, but this piece is going up very high in my family room and I felt like it didn't really need the extra paint.
Here it is on the wall.
Gorgeous! Don't cha think? I love it!
Don't you just love my red wall? Another post on that disaster coming very soon!
