These could easily be painted with acrylic craft paint. Using them on a Christmas wreath would be cute—just don’t put them outside. Even on a covered porch, I’d be afraid the dampness would make them a bit limp.

We had an unexpected day off of school so my 9 yo twin grandsons painted these up (I did the cutting, etc) for our Christmas centerpiece. More important than the simple centerpiece, it’ll be happy memories! Thanks for sharing your creativity!

This was such a good craft to do with my kids! Because I didn’t need to buy anything extra, I really wasn’t bothered if these didn’t look how I imagined them. Instead, I mixed paints and let my two boys paint. Once they are dry, we will break out the glitter pens to add a little bit of sparkle.

Love the toilet paper Christmas Tree. I like simple craft ideas. Something that everyone can make by utilizing what you already have in your home. I had six children and I always used things on hand. Not everyone can run out and buy things. Thank you for this idea. I may add to it by place a bottom and a few candy canes inside. Looking forward to seeing more from you!

What kind of paint did you use?


Judy said:

You can paint then inside and out easier to do before you cut it. Also, use a paper hole punch to cut out holes for a battery tealight to shine through. Adding white sparkly glitter or some puffs of cotton on the branches would also look great!

I am making these for a Christmas table setting a fill them with Chocolates in small bags

You can try this idea using paper towel rolls cutting them to various heights to get the forest look. 😊

Dianne McFerren, je retiens votre idée de peindre l’intérieur du rouleau afin que la finition soit plus belle. J’ai déjà plein d’idées dans la tête… merci

Love this idea, and the project turns out as depicted. I can see this craft idea being used at Girl Scouts/Cub Scout meetings among other places where up-cycling is a trend and keeping to a budget is a focus.

I had my 4 and 2 year old kids paint these and I wrote names below the trunk and they will be our place settings for Christmas Eve brunch!!

Going to try this and hubby suggested I place a Battery operated candle in the base to add a little glow.

Wonderfully creative idea!! I will try spray painting the whole thing green (inside & out)…decorating with dots and designs and cutting them at different heights. I want a colorful display for the fireplace mantle.
Thanks for an exciting use of toilet paper rolls!! Oh, and these could also be adapted to Autumn, Halloween, and Valentine’s Day.

These are fabulous. The whole family which is just 4 Adults and two kids, 11 and 13 are going to Cabo for Christmas. The house we are renting has no Christmas decorations. We are going to have great fun painting and decorating these. We might even try making a cactus…lol.
