How To Make Upcycled Toilet Paper Roll Christmas Vase
Empty Toilet Paper Rolls
8-12 4.5″ Popsicle Sticks or 6 ” Craft sticks
Craft glue or glue gun
Acrylic Paint is optional
- The toilet paper roll can be used “as is”, absolutely. I have found through making quite a few of the vases that if time allows, I paint the toilet paper roll. Why?
- Painting the toilet paper roll is quite quick and easy and optional, but it does tend to finish the look of the vase. I use a foam brush to paint the toilet paper rolls inside and out. The paint dries really really quick in about 15 minutes.
- Line up the bottom of the popsicle sticks flush with the bottom of the toilet paper roll. This will ensure the vase will stand straight. There is a bit of flexibility as to how flush the bottom of each stick is to the bottom of the toilet paper roll.
- The number of popsicle sticks will vary depending upon the type of popsicle stick aka craft sticks. The wider sticks will obviously take a lesser number.
- Attach the popsicle sticks side by side vertically to the toilet paper roll with craft glue or a glue gun. For this craft I use a glue gun all the way. But if assembling the vases with the little, littles then craft glue is a good choice.
- If the sticks do not line up evenly to cover the entire toilet paper roll the two last sticks to be glued on can be adjusted so a gap does not occur.
- Glue drying tip: I wrap a rubber band around the vase to help the sticks stay in place until the glue dries. The glue dries immediately if using a glue gun. If using craft glue it takes 10-15 minutes.

Simple! Use three toilet paper rolls! Or two toilet paper rolls!
For the largest vase, glue each roll together in a triangle shape. Voila! A larger Christmas vase is made.
It is that simple 🙂 . I like the larger version when using larger flowers.
Two toilet paper rolls with horizontal craft sticks make a wider vase with room to decorate. For this vase I glued green popsicle sticks on side by side horizontally as if making a fence.
Then find Christmas clip art on the internet, copy on a color printer and glue on! Use the kids favorite Christmas characters or better yet let the wee ones pick out their own favorite Christmas character to glue on the vase.
