Turn a leftover toilet paper roll into jaw dropping home decor! | HometalkJun 15, 2022
what I love about this project is that it's inexpensive we're starting with a
rollso we're going to start with our
rolland we're going to cut it down to about half this size so I'm going to use some scissors so now that we've cut our toilet paper roll in half I'm going to use this side here we're going to put this aside for now because we're going to move on to the next step so I'm going to take an exact sheet and essentially I want to create like a flat piece because this is going to be sitting on the ground and I don't want it to be unstable so what I'm going to do is I'm going to take my uh, my exact blade.
I'm going to extend it. I'm going to start shaving off part of this piece. Well, now that this is able to stand on its own, what am I going to do. What I'm going to do is place my toilet paper roll on top. I want it to be directly on the base. ing my glue I'm going to go around the inside I want it to fall here and I'm going to take my hot glue and I'm going to go around the outside and I'm going to keep adding glue around the surface basically filling in the space that I see between the roll of paper toilet and the round foam so now that this has stuck down I'm still waiting for the glue to dry a bit but we can start at the bottom of this and work our way up so it should be set by the time let's get to the top.

Now I'm going to use an artist palette knife. I have kind of a wider spatula, but yeah, this is what I'm going to do. to use so if we open it up you can see it's pink so I'm going to take a large amount of this and we're going to start layering it and ultimately what I'm trying to create is really solid. surface and I want to try to make the surfaces relatively smooth but it doesn't need to be perfect because we're going to do another step after this that's good ng to help smooth out the surface once I've completed this when we get a little further along More on this step, I'll walk you through other pieces, especially when we get here, but for now, we'll keep moving forward and I'll see the next step, so now we're at a point where we want to move on to the toilet paper roll. which is definitely a little more set, um, so it's a little tricky, you're definitely going to cover your hands. in putty um so don't worry you're not going to do anything bad with putty on your hands but if you choose to do this with gloves it makes sense now that it's dried a bit it's not completely dry as you can see it's Still relatively pink, we can start to tackle the top of this, so we're going to do essentially the same thing, but I'll start by going over the exposed base of the toilet paper roll so you can see that I'm covering it. there we want this to look a bit blended we want it to look fairly even and like I said ea Before it doesn't need to be perfect we'll do another step once everything is dry to really even out the surface and make it look really nice , so I let it dry for about 24 hours and as you can see it's completely white now it's not pink anymore and we did the inside so it would look pretty complete when you look at it from afar or when you look at it up close I just wanted that It was going to look very cohesive and nice so what I'm going to do now is I have a sanding block that I've already used so the sanding block is kind of dull so I'm going to use some sandpaper 220 grit.
I'm going to flare it around the block. we've sanded this down we're going to clean it up and then we'll take it outside and move on to the next step which will be spray painting it so here's the finished product of this high end dupe modern donut vase and I really love how it
turned out I think which looks great in my office and i hope you feel inspired to try this project we are going to start with a glass cylinder vase i bought it at the dollar tree the second item we are going to use for this project is eh or is this falling tower game is like miniature jenga so i really want to expose the grain of the wood and i don't necessarily want this natural finish that these wood pieces have if that's the desired look you want then you can do that, too you can use wood stain if you want so what we're going to do is put our pieces in these two little containers that I have you may need more or maybe go get whatever you have available and then we're going to pour coffee on top of these and let the coffee soak into these wood pieces and create kind of a DIY stain if you'd like so I was able to get my pieces out of the coffee let them soak for about 30 minutes to an hour depending on how much time you have and how long you if you want to let it soak that's totally up to you so now that they've dried we're going to assemble them into our glass cylinder now I'm going to use my favorite glue, which is e6000 i have the clear one so make sure you get that so the way i figured it out i think five around this size vase works really good i want to put them just so i know they're going to work however, if you want to go a step further just to make sure it will look good, you can start stacking the next layer. so basically we're going to work our way to the side of the vase with these pieces and stack them with a little bit of an offset.
I love how the brown really added some dimension to these wood pieces and if you feel good about the spacing on all sides then you are ready to start gluing because you really just need to make sure the first two rows are solid as the location and then you'll be fine and I'm just doing it in the center because you'll notice the sides aren't really um they're not really for oops they're not making contact right so now that I've looked around to make sure it looks right We're going to go ahead and add the next few layers, so one thing I've noticed is that you want to add on the back, the side that will be attached to the vase, but I also like to add a little on the bottom of my pieces on each side where it will make contact with the row below and that's essentially the rest of this it's going to look like we're going to continue this pattern all the way to the end of the vase so we'll come back when we get a little closer to par top to finish this vase project, so now that we've gotten to a place where we're actually about to be on top of the vase, you can stop, however, I want to continue this pattern one more row, so i have some really nice ones and i really like the details on these grains especially on the sides i feel like they pop as well so let's continue with all we need to do. s we just need to do the bottoms so we're going to fully continue this and one thing I really like to pay attention to with this project is making sure that every row that you're stacking is lining up that's really going to make this look really cool when we're done just because you want those straight lines and there you have it this is my finished vase on my living room shelf i love it it was so easy to make and so inexpensive hope you enjoyed this project thank you so much to see talk at
homeand I'll see you next time bye
