Toilet Paper Roses

2 Materials
5 Minutes
I recently visited with a friend that has an unparalleled sense of hospitality and a sharp eye for detail. One of the first things I noticed was the simple tissue rose that sat atop the toilet paper roll in the guest bathroom. I stress "simple"...but it made me feel very welcome.
This is a typical toilet paper stand as we use every day. Nothing special; in fact, it's generic tp.
Begin by pulling out a length of about 18". This isn't exact science, as you can always pull more if needed.
Begin twirling the paper. Not too tight.
Take the end and loop it into a loose knot.
Wrap the twirled paper around the knot to fashion a rose. When you are done, just set it neatly on the roll of paper.
Easy as can be, and so pretty.
Suggested materials:

    Cute idea. I just tried it. However, mine just looked like a bunch of wadded up wasted toilet paper. also, what happens to it when the first guest goes in to use the bathroom?

    I just tried it in our bath downstairs and my husband said, he thought it looked like a pile of poop. I thought it was the perfect rose., but it popped up and that is what he seen

    This is so simple, and just makes people SMILE. I clean homes for a living, and, instead of the good ol triangle, I will start leaving these little gems. I just LOVE this. I ALWAYS try to leave MY special touch to my homes, even if, (and almost ALWAYS the case), I will never meet or see the guests. I hope they feel the warm hug I leave behind. THANK YOU THANK YOU for this PERFECT idea. Smile it forward.
