Wait Until You See This Toilet Paper Roll Hack

2 Materials
15 Minutes

Who loves a hack? This toilet paper roll hack is perfect as we get ready for fall and all of our mantels and tables. Just wait!

Doesn’t it seem like ages ago when we set our alarms for 5 am to get in line for toilet paper? Looking back it was like Christmas morning in the month of March and part of April when we came home with a 12 pack of Charmin Ultra.

And, now? I wished I had saved those toilet paper rolls.

My decor theme this year is more fall everything this year. I purchased these beautiful fall leaf stems at Hobby Lobby and assembled them in my go-to metal buckets.The only issue was the weight of the stems caused quite a mess when they toppled onto the floor from the mantel.

And then I got this crazy idea that empty toilet paper rolls might contain those stems. I found a few empty rolls in the trash and may have unrolled a few toilet paper rolls that were nearing the end (no pun intended).

Some stems are easier than others. Just bend and twirk those stems or branches. I folded the ends of the stems & inserted in the toilet paper roll.

You guys, the bottom 1/4 of the stem fit perfectly into the toilet paper roll.5. Arrange

The toilet paper roll was sturdy enough to hold the stem AND fit into the floral buckets. And no one in my family will ever know what is keeping those fall stems upright and tucked into place.

Now is the time to send a group text to the family that you need toilet paper rolls. Just asking that question in a family group text is sure to get your kids curiosity and a reply. And wait until you tell them you are getting ready to decorate for fall.

What do you think?
