This Year's DIY Christmas Decoration (Made From Toilet Paper Rolls!)

If ever there was a DIY Christmas decoration of the year, this would be it! All you need is a toilet roll - and we all have A LOT of those! 

Read on to find out how to put your toilet paper rolls to good use and make the prettiest of Christmas decorations-

How to create a Christmas flower from toilet paper roll: 

What you need:
- 3 toilet rolls
- Ruler
- Pencil
- Scissors
- Glue gun
- String

What to do: 
1. Flatten one of the toilet rolls so that there is a fold on each side
2. Use the ruler and pencil to draw horizontal lines 1 centimetre apart.
3. Follow the lines to cut 1-centimetre strips (creating a series of loops)
3. Arrange the loops into a flower shape to form the centre of the flower and glue the tips together 
4. Flatten another toilet roll and repeat step 2. And then cut the strips in half horizontally and use the glue to create smaller loops. Attach these to the flower using glue
5. Flatten a third toilet roll and repeat step 2. Cut the loop open to create an arch and then attach these to the flower with glue. 
6. Add string to hang your decoration


There is no end to the creations you can make with toilet rolls - I also love the angels above, and have also seen stars and snowflakes, as well as a load of other shapes!
