Let’s DIY

Make sure you use smaller rolls, not jumbo rolls of toilet paper. I found this pack of 4 at the Dollar Store.

It just makes it a bit harder to roll the yarn if it is a larger roll.

First you want to add some hot glue to the inner side of the toilet paper.

Then start your yarn out there.

Push your yarn through the inner side of the toilet paper.

Continue this until you have covered the entire roll of toilet paper.

If you run out of room, simply cut smaller pieces of the yarn, and glue on each side to completely cover the roll.

It will get tight toward the end!

Adding the Stem

You can just cut a tree branch down and use that for a stem.

Place some hot glue on the inner side of the toilet paper and place stem there.

I would recommend a longer stem if you are adding decorations so you can clearly see it.

This is the fun part.

We just added a simple fall ribbon to the top.

You can find the plaid ribbon here!

You could add fall leaves, or berries to spruce it up!

I wanted to keep these simple, but the possibilities are endless to make these to match whatever your color palette is for fall.
