Lucy's Loo Roll Flowers

Hello... Just a quick little crafty post today, a make perfect for a rainy bank holiday Monday.  Yes while away last week in a very rainy Suffolk, we spent quite some time stuck in the cottage, wondering what to do, on one of these occasions the very lovely Lucy shared with us how to make these pretty loo roll flowers. 

As we were in a cottage in the middle of no where, craft supplies were some what limited but all you need for this make is the inside of a toilet roll some scissors, glue and a peg.

First up cut six pieces from the cardboard tube

Then all you do is glue them at one end and stick the pieces together, like so

then pop on a peg to hold them in place while they dry

Once dry they look like this

then all you have to do is glue the last section and pop the peg back on until it's dry.


You have a loo roll flower,

 How I wished I'd had a button with me to pop in the centre, I do love the rustic look of them, but I was also hankering for some paints, glitter, buttons and ribbons to decorate them maybe even some decoupage paper, the options are endless.

I can see them on Christmas trees all white and sparkly and also painted in pretty pastel shades with button centre made up into a pretty garland. So a big thank you to Lucy for introducing me to the loo roll flower.

As those of you who follow me on Instagram will know I had a bit of a fall on holiday and have injured my ankle, don't you just love the zimmer frame!!  Any road it's taking me ages to do anything at the moment, so it might be a while until I get around to my next post.

Happy Crafting

  1. Such a simple but very effective idea. So sorry to hear about your fall, hope you recover quickly.

  2. Ouch, hope it's not too painful. Flowers are pretty xx

  3. I love loo roll flowers, I saw a great piece of wall art once made using them! Sorry about you fall, I hope you are soon back to full speed!! x

  4. Nice. We spent some time at the cottage this summer too, with very little extra indeed as our "cottage" is only 8' x 12' and we all 4 sleep there. I "crafted" an earth oven, and the boys whittled walking sticks, wands, and "scottish spurdles" for craft time.

  5. So sorry to hear about your ankle, I do hope that it heals soon and that you don't have to be hobbling around for too long. The flowers are a great idea aren't they, I was put off because I couldn't imagine how they would stick together, but seeing your photos has explained it to me so well. Thank you! Take care of yourself. xx

  6. I am so sorry about your injury. I broke my leg a few years ago, so I know how frustrating every little task can be! I hope that you are not in too much pain and that you are giving that ankle plenty of rest.

  7. What a great way of using toilet roll! Hope you are on the mend soon.

  8. Oh that's so clever, and perfect for a rainy day activity. I'm sorry about your fall though, hopefully it will all be better soon!
