Saw it, Pinned it, DID IT!


Original pin found here

 
When I saw this idea, I knew I had to try it! It was simple, cheap, yet chic. Which pretty much defines "perfection" in my book!!

So then I took a whack at it:
1.Collect all the toilet paper/paper towel rolls you can get your hands on.
2. Smush (hey, got a better word?!) the roll flat.
3. Cut about every .5 inches. Or if you prefer a more dramatic piece, cut em thicker!!
4. Glue the comers of each piece to make a "flower".
5. Arrange the "flowers" into any design/shape you'd like. Now spray paint whatever color matches your décor. (Thanks for helping paint, B!)
(I made a cross with mine because I figured I could find any room to hang it in. Lets be honest, crosses are an easy home décor piece!)
 

There ya have it, easy peasey lemon squeezey!!
