How to Make Christmas Toilet Paper Roll Crafts: 

Now remember you'll have to be patient and have tonnes glitter when making these Christmas characters. I have created some step-by-step instructions on how to make these. We spend an afternoon making these characters and it did take a whole afternoon with waiting for the paint to dry, but they are so worth the wait. So here is a step-to-step guide for this cute little toilet paper roll characters. 


Santa: 

1. Paint the paper with a lovely bright red and before the paint dries sprinkle on some red glitter all over the toilet paper roll. I found if you put your fingers inside the roll was the best way to paint the character and add the glitter. 

2. Set aside to dry and take the extra toilet paper roll and try and make a hat. To make the hat start by cutting out a small circle. Cut one slit into the circle so that you can form the hat. Cut off any extra paper when you roll around to form the hat. Then glue or tape the hat to the top of the paper roll. 

3. Stretch out some cotton balls, something that my daughter really enjoyed and then glue to the brim of the hat and the top of roll. Glue the white pom pom to the top.

4. Set aside to dry and take the extra toilet paper roll for Snowman Nose, Elf and Santa Hat, and Reindeer Antlers. In this case we need to make a face for Santa. Simply cut out a small square and glue into place. The take more of the stretched out cotton and give him a beard. You can be as creative as you like, we preferred a short beard. 

5. Glue on the googly eyes and pom pom nose. 



Snowman: 

1. Paint the toilet paper roll white. 

2. Before the paint dries, roll the toilet paper roll in the artificial snow, it really does stand out. Set aside to dry. 

3. While your snowman is drying, with the extra toilet paper roll cut out a triangle shape for his nose, and then paint orange. However, for ease simply use orange coloured paper or colour in the nose with an orange felt tip. Once dry glue to the snowman. 

4. Glue on two googly eyes. 

5. Using two different coloured tinsel pipe cleaners and twist to make a a scarf and then wrap around the paper roll and glue down if neccessary. 


Reindeer: 

1. Paint the toilet paper roll brown, we gave our Rudolph a couple of coats. 

2. For the antlers take your extra toilet paper roll again and fold in half cut a small rectangle. Keep the piece folded and cut your unique antlers, remembering not to cut the bottom. As the two antlers will be still attached to one another, simply use a little tape and glue into place on the back of the toilet paper roll. 

3. Glue on two googly eyes and a red pom pom nose.


Elf:

1. Paint the paper with a lovely bright green and before the paint dries sprinkle on some glitter all over the toilet paper roll. Similar to the Santa's hat. 

2. Set aside to dry and take the extra toilet paper roll for the last time. Make the hat by cutting out a small circle. Cut one slit into the circle so that you can form the hat. Cut off any extra paper when you roll around to form the hat. Then glue or tape the hat to the top of the paper roll.

3. Stretch out some cotton balls, something that my daughter really enjoyed and then glue to the brim of the hat. Glue the white pom pom to the top.

5. Glue on the googly eyes and pom pom nose.

6. Using two different coloured pipe cleaners and twist to make a a scarf and then wrap around the paper roll and glue down if neccessary. 


So there you have it, a cute little Christmas craft to do with your children to get them in the mood for Christmas. I loved doing these with my daughter. They were really simple and easy to do and make fantastic Christmas decorations. So if you have any toilet paper rolls spare, be creative and make some cute Christmas Characters.
