Toilet Paper Rolls Recycled


My sister came for a visit last week and asked about a craft I had made in a window
and I thought I would feature it here this weekend.

I did this one earlier this year from an idea on the internet.

But these don't compare to the incredible artwork of the gnarled faces made from toilet paper rolls by
 created by Junior Fritz Jacquet

I can't imagine the patience!

These simpler crafts are festive ideas for Christmas.

 This is the one I did,
just cut slices of the rolls,
glued them together in a random design using a glue gun,
and then painted them with acrylic paints with a bit of plaster of Paris mixed in to give it some extra stability.

 There are so many great ideas for such simple things and some pretty amazing artists!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you had a great weekend!
