I recently decided that I wanted to do more displays on this blog so I did some searching on pinterest and found some beautiful things. I saw a version of this wall art using toilet roll tubes but it was much bigger and more artistic than I could manage so I decided to downscale it. Anyway, here's how to make a nice little DIY display using toilet roll tubes.
I just collected these tubes from around my house although for my display that I made I only used two toilet roll tubes/one kitchen roll tube.I made lines at every 1cm along my toilet paper tube to mark the thickness of the display. You could alter this to make it thicker or thinner as you liked.
I cut the tubes according to the lines I made. As I said before, I used two toilet paper rolls.
I then arranged the pieces in the design I wanted but I ended up altering this when I was glueing by accidentally adding too many to the middle. This is when you can make this as arty/plain as you would like.
I then glued the pieces together using 'Tacky Glue' which is just personally what I preferred. You could use any type of strong holding glue that you would like. I then used paper clips to hold the pieces together until they dried. This means that no pieces will slip away and glue in a way you don't like.
I painted my design using acrylic paint. I used DecoArt's Crafter's Acrylic in 'Pink Lemonade' and 'Spa Blue'. These pastel colours scream spring and I just love them.
