DIY || Last Minute Christmas DIYs – Gifts and Ornaments from Toilet Roll!

A quick little DIY for you to try out just before Christmas day comes!

They’re super quick and super perfect for last-minute projects. So here are 2 DIYs you can try out at home to give your Festive celebration that extra touch!

DIY Bon Bons!

What you’ll need

  • Empty Toilet roll(s)
  • Some coloured paper or wrapping paper
  • An adhesive – Any quick drying Glue or Sellotape is fine
  • Some Ribbon
  • Something to fill your Bon-Bon with!

Step 1

Cover your Toilet roll using your coloured paper. Do this by sticking one edge to the toilet roll with your glue or sellotape. Then roll your toilet roll up in your coloured paper and when you get to the end of your paper, glue it to hold it in place.

Ensure that you have enough excess at both ends of the toilet roll to make your Bon-Bon edges

 


Step 2

Gently squeeze on one end of your Bon Bon and tie it up using some ribbon

 


Step 3

Take your Bon Bon filler (chocolate in my case) and put them into your Bon Bon using the open end.

Once you’re done, squeeze on the open end just like before and tie it up using more ribbon!

DIY Tree Ornaments

What you’ll need

  • Some toilet roll
  • A pair of scissors
  • Some glitter
  • Some PVA glue
  • A glue gun
  • Some rope

Step 1

Cut your toilet roll into 6 small strips!


Step 2

Shape your toilet roll strips to form leaf like shapes. Once you’ve done that, arrange your strips into the shape of a flower!


Step 3

Using your glue gun, stick the strips together at the point they all meet!

To add that extra touch to your ornament, you can add a pearl to the centre of the flower.


Step 4

The final step is to apply glue all over the leaves of your flower and apply some glitter over it!


Tie a string to one of the leaves and your ornament is done!
