Paper Roll Wall Art

11-14 year olds | two hours

This quirky little craft is much more elegant than it sounds. Armed with creativity, your child can make an abstract piece of wall art to adorn any room!

What You'll Need

  • toilet paper rolls or paper towel rolls
  • a stapler
  • scissors
  • paint
  • glitter
  • 3M adhesive squares


1. Cut the toilet paper rolls into fifths. Place on a table with the edges resting on a flat surface.
2. Once all the pieces are cut (50 pieces are a minimum) and are laying on table, arrange them in a pattern. Don’t hesitate to try different patterns or compositions. Add more rolls to continue the pattern if you want to make it larger.
3. Once you have a design you want, staple each roll where it touches its neighbouring rolls.
4. If you would like, add paint or glitter to the sides of the rolls. If hanging on a wall, these decorations may not be apparent, however.
5. Adhere to wall using 3M adhesive squares. Enjoy!
