5 DIY Toilet Paper Roll Advent Calendars

Christmas will be here before we know it and I’m trying to be super organised this year. I know that if I don’t start doing things now, they’ll never get done.

I have a bag full of toilet paper rolls which I’ve been collecting over the months and thought they’d be put to good use in an advent calendar. They’d also make cute little gift boxes, especially ones you can hang from the tree.

Here are 5 great DIY Toilet Paper Roll or Cardboard Roll Advent Calendar ideas! Click on each link to visit the blog for instructions.

    I love the bonbon idea. I found a stash of 14 toilet rolls under my sons bed – he was saving them for making things with. I should’ve kept them.

    Oh these all look fabulous, but I must admit the mere idea of Christmas is overwhelming right now. I’m afraid I’ll just buy a little advent calender this year, for the past few years we have always bought the Lego one, so at least it creates a little bit of building fun each morning xx Josefa from #teamIBOT

    That is awesome, I always have heaps of toilet rolls sitting at the bottom of my toilet roll holder!

    I have to admit I was a bit dubious reading the title on the blog carnival cause I immediately thought preschool craft but pleasantly surprised, these are super modern, stylish and fun ideas!!! Thanks for the great links and sorry for judging, glad I clicked anyway 🙂

    I really like the last one but they are all great ideas. Can anyone get the last link to work? It won’t for me 🙁

    We made bon bons for our Christmas in July party, they were such a hit – here’s a tip though, make sure the paper you use to wrap the toilet rolls breaks easily. Ours didn’t and there were killer elbows everywhere!
