Party Banner From Used Toilet Tissue Rolls

When my daughter’s birthday was approaching, I wanted to decorate her room with something that says “HAPPY BIRTHDAY”. Although we didn’t celebrate it with a party, I wanted to create some banners for her. My idea was to re-purpose some toilet tissue rolls that I’ve been saving. The materials that I used were easy to find and simple and I was so happy with the result. The banner looks so pretty!

MATERIALS YOU NEED:

  • A couple of used toilet tissue rolls (the amount depends on how many alphabets would be on the banner)
  • Some paper doilies, preferably in 2 different motifs
  • Alphabet cut-outs or stickers (or hand-drawn)
  • String, ribbon or yarn ( I used jute string).

HOW TO MAKE:

  1. Flatten all the tissue rolls.
  2. Adhere the paper doilies on each of the tissue rolls. Place them in pattern or differently to accentuate.
  3. Arrange the decorated tissue rolls in pattern, then adhere the alphabets with the intended spelling (mine is HAPPY BDAY).
  4. Insert the string into the roll with the last alphabet in the line-up, first, then take out the string, make a loop and insert the string back. Repeat this action for the rests of the rolls.
  5. Arrange the banner on the wall to decorate your celebration.
