Toilet Paper Roll Leaf Tree

 

There’s nothing like taking something so lowly as a toilet paper roll and making something wonderful out of it.  Even on close inspection no one would EVER suspect that that’s how the leaves on this decorative tree were made.

This project works for a myriad of occasions, from parties, to weddings, to home decor.  I am so happy with it that I intend to use it throughout the year by adding small touches for each season.  Little eggs during Spring, ornaments in the holidays.  You get the idea.

 

So let’s get to it.  Here’s how to make the Toilet Paper Roll Leaf Tree:  Gather some empty toilet roll cardboard centers.

 

Cut them on the seam like this.

 

 

Then start cutting out leaves.  You’ll want to cut them out taking advantage of the curve in the roll.  So cut them out tip to tip like this.

 

Once you think you’ve cut out enough for the size tree you want to make, go to your sewing machine and sew one straight seam down the center of each leaf, like this.

They’ll look like this.  Then clip the threads closely.

Gather all the leaves together, and take them outside and spray them all Silver front and back (or whatever color you like).

 

You’ll also need some branches.  I got these curly Willow from my local florist for about $10.

Hold the branches together by crunching a lot of aluminum foil around the base.  Make sure they’re arranged the way you like them, because ideally they’re going to stay just the way they are.

Now take them outside to a place where you can’t spray your house, or your fence, or your car, or your dog, and hold them with one hand and spray the branches with the other with my favorite silver spray Design Master Super Silver.

Let the branches dry completely.  Then stuff them securely in a heavy container (or at least put rocks or pebbles to weight it) with lots of aluminum foil holding the branches in place.

Next glue gun the leaves to the branches.  Start at the bottom center and work your way up and out.  Work slowly and deliberately and step back from time to time to see where a blank spot may need a leaf.

And that’s all there is to it!  It really is an amazing piece of art when you’re finished.  I hope you’ll give it a try!

I can do that!  And you can, too!

    pinned this on my Hallowe’en board- totally gonna be making this in black. Oh bummer, just had another idea that’ll get me in trouble with the mister (he’s SO negative when it comes to my way of home improvement…) what about a leafy, branchy Hallowe’en chandelier using this technique? All it’d take is tying a few of those leafy twigs around a bulb. Genius that I am- are there light bulbs that don’t get too hot? I’d kinda hate to burn down the house, Hallowe’en or not!

    Sheer genius! oh, I have a stack of those rolls just waiting…

  3. Maggie@SquarePennies

    Very chic! I could see this for a New Year’s party! Thanks!
