Make Toilet Roll Glasses!

Toilet roll crafts are some of my favorite ones to make.  (You can check out our extensive toilet roll craft gallery here.)  Right now we're still living out of our suitcases, so good ol' tp rolls are also some of the few craft items that I still have on hand.  Recently I saw Krokotak's toilet roll sunglasses tutorial and I knew that I really wanted to make my own version.  I've had pineapples and rainbows on my mind lately, so naturally they found their way into this adorable craft.

Materials Needed

  • Toilet paper rolls
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Paint
  • Paint brushes
  • Cereal box

Let's Make Some Toilet Roll Glasses!

1.  Cut rings from your toilet paper rolls to become the lenses.

2.  Then, cut out the other parts of your glasses from cereal boxes.  (I sized the glasses to Chuck's face and cut out the pieces accordingly.)

3.  To attach the pieces, cut out slits in your lenses.  Slide your pieces into the slits and glue them to the lenses to make your glasses.

Now comes the fun part.  Once your glue dries, paint your glasses! 

And now you've got yourself a pair of pineapple glasses....
