Toilet Paper Roll Snowflake

Present decorated with a toilet paper roll snowflake.

Are you wrapping some last-minute presents today? I know I still have a few to wrap. Just because it’s last minute, doesn’t mean you don’t have time to make each present special. This tutorial will show you how to make a pretty snowflake to top your presents in just minutes. Plus, it uses something we all have around the house—toilet paper rolls! Here’s how to craft your own toilet paper roll snowflake.

Step one of making a toilet paper roll into a snowflake.Gather a bunch of toilet paper rolls or paper towel rolls.

Step two of making a toilet paper roll into a snowflake.Flatten the roll and then cut segments at about 1/2 an inch.

Step three of making a toilet paper roll into a snowflake.Keep cutting and you’ll have a bunch of petal-shaped pieces.

Step four of making a toilet paper roll into a snowflake.Next, hot glue your pieces together in the shape of a snowflake. I just put a tiny dab of glue on the corner of one piece and stuck the other corner to it. Then, just go around in a circle.

Step five of making a toilet paper roll into a snowflake.I used five pieces to make my snowflake, but you can use as many or as few as you like. After all, no snowflake is the same.
