Toilet Tissue Roll Snowmen

I’ve been having lots of fun making simple holiday crafts, including these toilet tissue roll snowmen from empty toilet tissue rolls!

Easy Toilet Tissue Roll Snowmen

Before you start gagging and running for your anti-bacterial hand sanitizer, I have to confess that these empty toilet tissue rolls have never rolled their way into the bathroom.  I removed them from the center of  perfectly new rolls of toilet paper. Relax, I didn’t throw the tissue away.  I stored them in the bathroom cabinet for that day when we inevitably run out of tissue.

My inspiration for this idea came from my blogger friend, Cindy, who is a crafter extraordinaire!  You can find her DIY Snowman PVC Candle Covers here and her snowmen made from empty wrapping paper rolls here!

I needed a simple, indestructible craft idea to add some winter wonderland fun to my Christmas themed Kids’ Table (coming soon) and the toilet paper rolls were free and easy.  The kids will have a blast making these!

I painted the rolls with white acrylic paint and let them dry.  After they were dry, I outlined the snowman faces using Cindy’s snowman tutorial from the PVC snowmen.  I’m not an artist, so be nice.  Then I just painted between the lines.  That I can do!

I bought the black hat at the Dollar Tree and it worked perfectly!  I was too lazy to actually make the hat, so I just glued it to the top of the toilet tissue rolls.  The gray toboggan was fashioned from an old sweater.  You just cut and glue.

Last year I created a snow family from empty creamer bottles.  You can find my cutie pie snow family here!

Wasn’t that easy?  What easy crafts do you make during the Christmas season?

PS – Stay tuned for my toilet tissue roll Christmas napkin rings!  They’re off the chain adorable!

  1. Alli, your snowmen are just too adorable and you did such a wonderful job making them! I’m so happy that my little snowmen provided a bit of inspiration and thank you for your kind words, you are too sweet! I love both hats and how each of them have their own personality. One can never have too many snowmen! 🙂 Pinning and hope you have a happy first day of December!

  2. S would love to make both the tp roll and coffee creamer snowmen. They are so cute! I can’t wait to see your napkin rings!

  3. Love the idea. And for not being an artist, I think the snowmen have the cutest smiles ever! This is brilliant and so cute! And the hats make them! Very easy and this would be a fun family craft!

  4. My kind of craft easy and cute. I love it and the kids can help put it together as many tissue roles that we have around here. It would be a great project

  5. Oh Alli, these are wonderful crafts. I know my kids would enjoy them – still trying to figure out the how you got the little hats from the $$$ Tree to fit perfectly on the snowman. Do they make hats that small? I also clicked on Miss Cindy’s post – she is a crafter for real!

    • The hat is actually a Christmas ornament from the Dollar Tree. When I saw it I knew I could use it for something. I just snipped off the ribbon and it fit perfectly with just a dab of hot glue. When my kids are donating to charity I always ask for their old sweaters with stains, rips, etc. They come in handy with simple, inexpensive crafts like this.

  6. These are the cutest and quite economical too. As a former teacher, this would be an excellent holiday craft while teaching recycling.

  7. How cute is that! And this snowmen aren’t even cold ;).

  8. These are cute! LOL, I am loving the ones you made last year from the creamer bottles. I made snowmen from socks, one to rep each of us.

  9. How fun!! I love their little hats! Pinned.

  10. These are too too cute! I love them, and Rory will go crazy for them. She has been making steampunk top hats out of toilet paper rolls… LOL I can totally see these coming to my house for Christmas. Pinned.

  12. Very cute! I love the idea of using toilet rolls.

  13. Toilet paper rollers can be used in so many ways! I love TP roll crafts because they are simple and easy to do with the children. Your snowmen are adorable. I may have to do this with my grands, they would love it!
    I save my creamer bottles for crafts and repurposing also!
    Pinning 🙂

    • I had a blast making the snowmen, Shirley. It’s an inexpensive way to keep little hands busy throughout December. December passes so slowly for them and speeds by to me.

  14. I saw this yesterday and thought how creative! I have all these toiled paper rolls I saved to do an Easter Bunny last year and never did it. Now we can make snowmen!

  15. I decorate my house with snowmen during Christmas. I love this craft!! So easy and cute!! Love it!!
