DIY Toilet Paper Holder

11 Materials
90 Minutes

Do you want to decorate your bathroom for a holiday? What about a chewing gum toilet paper holder? Why not!
Check out the video above to learn how to make your own!
Take out all wipes from the box.
Mark the slit. Cut it out with a craft knife.
Open the box from the other side.
Trace the top on white paper. Cut it out.
Attach to the bottom.
Cover the box with white acrylic paint
We’ll imitate the Wrigley’s Doublemint package. Better get a pack of chewing gum at hand or an image before your eyes. You can find it in the internet.
Outline an arrow. Draw two lines to make a shaft. Add a head.
Make another head on the other end.
Write the brand name. You can print out the logo instead.
Paint the box green. It’ll be the background. Leave the arrow white.
Cover the sides with the basic color.
Add a dark red detail. Paint the arrow deep green.
Be careful to leave the letters white.
The base is ready. Let’s add some details.
Paint little red arrows on the sides.
Repeat for the other side.
Add the lettering on top and bottom of the central arrow. Use a red pen.
Mention the pieces quantity with the black pen. Write it on the same place it’s on the original pack.
That’s enough of painting. Now the package is just like the giant chewing gum.
Attach double-sided mounting tape to the bottom.
Fasten the holder on the wall. Put in toilet paper. Secure the top with a pushpin.
Pass the paper through the bottom slit. It’s unusual and cheap.

      Any box the width of your TP roll and long enough to look right will work. it doesn't have to be a specific brand or product.

    How well does it hold up to the humidity in the bathroom?

      All the paint should make the box stronger. I think I would either spray or brush the whole box with a poly sealer, or cover the whole thing with clear Contact paper. Doublemint Gum packages are shiny anyway. The double sided tape should hold the box to the wall. As for holding the top flaps together, I would put a couple of self-stick Velcro dots so I wouldn't have to worry about my grandchildren taking the tack pins out and getting hurt. Best wishes 😇

    The mom in me is thinking...hook and loop dots instead of push pins for the top.
